Building on their incredibly popular solid cedar top range of ukuleles, Kala have just released this, the ATP8-CTG 8 string. Solid Cedar is such a good tone engine - just ask any classical guitarist - as it has such a good response from the bass to the high treble register.
Anyone familiar with Kala 8 strings will find the feel in the hand very familiar; the 38mm nut width and the neck profile are the same as you find on other Kala 8 strings. But, it is the richness and clarity in the sound which at this price point is very unique, and will see this model quickly become a favourite.
