KALA BRAND UKULELES HAVE JUST BEGUN, BUT OUR ROOTS GO BACK A BIT.
Hi, I’m Mike Upton, founder of Kala Brand Music Co. and Kala Brand Ukulele. I became acquainted with the charm of the ukulele at an early age as my Dad would strum the “uke” and sing old standards, entertaining the family, neighbors, and worshiping in Church. The sweet, soothing sound was the best pacifier for a fidgety child like yours truly, so as I grew up, you guessed it, I started playing the bass. Four strings like the uke, only much larger and able to rattle your teeth with the proper amplification i.e. Ampeg SVT 300 Watt Tube Head through a 8×10 cabinet. Anyway, back to the ukulele, I re-engaged with the uke while living on heavenly Lanikai Beach in 1991 with my lovely wife, Wendy. You were just starting to hear and see more and more people playing ukulele back then. My interest continued as I became the Hawaii Sales Representative for the Hohner Company in 1997. I found out very quickly that there were very few quality, affordable ukuleles available in the Islands. So with that in mind, I set out and with some help developed the popular ukulele line. In July of 2005 I went out on my own to start Kala Ukulele to continue to expand what is possible in the realm of quality, affordable instruments for the Ukulele Enthusiast and Novice alike. SO LET ME INTRODUCE TO YOU, KALA BRAND UKULELE … the result of this ever-expanding vision of quality, affordable ukuleles. With over 100 models currently offered, there is an instrument to fit everyone’s tastes and budget. Please check out our Hawaiian Koa, Mahogany, Solid Spruce Top, Spalted Flame Maple, Archtop, Mango, All Solid Mahogany, Makala, and Novelty Ukuleles and see if you don’t find what you are looking for. We are introducing several new models including an All Solid Acacia, All Solid Lacewood. We are also releasing two very unique offerings, a Thin Bodied Travel Ukulele and an awesome Bass Ukulele – The UBass. Check them out!!
