The Kala company is all about the uke. The company lives and breathes ukulele – ukes are all they make, and they make them exceedingly well. In fact, Kala is in no small part responsible for the strong resurgence of interest in the uke that’s been going on since the mid 1990s. They design and manufacture over 120 different models made from a variety of woods.

From Kala -

“Totally redesigned for 2014, the Kala Tenor Resonator Ukulele’s lightweight aluminum resonator cone will provide you with a unique, robust tone that is louder and more distinctive than the typical wooden uke. Additionally, the Tenor Resonator’s stylish brass resonator cover and stunning figured mahogany body will be sure to attract attention. A serious uke with distinctive looks and sound, the Kala Tenor Resonator Ukulele’s robust tone will ensure that your performance is always a memorable one.”

Rather than utilising a wooden soundboard like a standard ukulele, a resonator ukulele utilises spun aluminium cones to produce its tone. Resonator ukes were originally designed to be louder than conventional ukuleles so they wouldn’t be overwhelmed by other instruments during a performance.

Resonator ukuleles also produce a different and distinctive tone quality. Although resonator ukuleles resemble lap steel guitars, these ukes are typically played in a conventional manner, rather than in a flat or bottleneck style.

The Resonator line is fitted with a lightweight aluminium resonator directly into the Mahogany body. The resonator gets a brass cover and the body gets elegant F-holes to give this model its distinct appearance.
