Kala NSM-KOR-T Tenor Revelator Ukulele Master Grade Korina in gigbag #37330923
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. It sounds every bit as good as one of Pete's, and feels and looks the part too.
Pete has always decribed 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 voluime 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.
Highly recommended! Pictures show the actual instrument you will receive.
