Kala U.S.A. Custom Shop Handmade #1 Uke

Kala U.S.A. Custom Shop Handmade #1 Uke

 

Behold the Kala Custom Shop, made entirely in the U.S.A., serial number 1 Ukulele.

This is the first of what hopefully is a long line of handmade Kala Ukes built right here at home. We told you about this new Kala line earlier this month.

Kala says this one is not for sale, as it is going into the company’s collection. But number 2 and forward should be available for sale.

No word yet on pricing or availability.

This was was shipped to Summer NAMM for all the world to ogle.

And it’s a beauty.

New, Handmade Uke on the Way from Kala

Kala Brand Music Co.plans to add a Ukulele handmade in the USA to its lineup next year.

The Kala Brand Music Co., well known and highly respected for producing well-constructed and playable Asian-built Ukuleles for little money, plans to add USA-made models to its lineup next year.

Mike Upton, the founder of Petaluma-Ca.-based Kala, told Musical Merchandise Review magazine that the company plans to introduce at least one Made in America model soon.

Kala will introduce a ukulele handmade in the U.S. at our Petaluma, California shop at the 2015 NAMM Show.

He did not say if it will be introduced at Winter NAMM or Summer NAMM, though.

Kala already produces a line of Acoustic/Electric Ukulele Bass models in California, so adding a USA-made model Uke makes sense. No word on how much it will cost or what woods will be available, however.
