Wow! The revelator design has been successfully passed over to Kala by Pete Howlett, and what a superb job they have done with this, our first Kala revelator tenor ukulele. It sounds every bit as good as one of Pete's, and feels and looks the part too.

Pete has always described the revelator as an 'acoustic anomaly'. Basically, he means that it has no right sounding as good as it does acoustically. If you have never heard a revelator before you might see the slimline body and assume that there is going to be no acoustic volume or projection. And you wouldn't be more wrong! It is loud, lively and characterful, with a fuller tone than it has a right to make.

In the hand, it is so light (without ever feeling fragile), because it is not a solid body instrument. The body is routed out before the top is glued to it, so very clever acoustic chambers are created which pump out this supernaturally rich and vibrant sound. And when you plug it in, you'll notice a very high quality sound through the installed passive piezo pickup.

This limited edition high grade Hawaiian Koa model comes with a gorgeous highly figured koa top, producing a sweeter more harp like sound than the standard korina models. It also features a koa leaf headstock inlay adorned in Australian gold leaf. Gorgeous! The back and sides are a solid carved out piece of Mahogany.

Pictures show the actual instrument you will receive. This NS-KOA-B model is part of a limited run of Revelators being produced in 2024 and one of the first of its kind in a Baritone size.
