SOUND
The Concept behind the KA-8E eight-string is similar to a 12 string guitar, providing a natural organic chorused sound. Similar to the KA-8 but with the addition of a Pickup system so you can plug it into an amplifier or PA.

The Kala Mahogany Series Ukulele offer a full-bodied tone with plenty of "Sweet Highs" and "Mellow Lows"  that combine for a full rich sound.

The KA-8E shares a lot with a Mandolin or Tiple in tone, perfect for playing the mandolin parts in country music, but being fitted with Italian Aquila Nylgut strings it won't tear your fingertips apart as a Mandolins Steel strings will. The tuning is standard ukulele GCEA but with a twist so all your current skills and knowledge are easily transferrable.

A really 'grown-up' tone that is truly unique, a common string arrangement in Hawaii that is finding favor worldwide with many players seeking something NEW.


LOOKS
Traditional white binding on the top and the back accent the high gloss finish, while chrome die-cast tuners assure your instrument will stay in tune.   Impressive, unique, and with a big sound are what you get with the Kala's KA-8E eight-string tenor ukulele.

TUNING
The G and C strings are doubled with octave pairs, while the E and A strings are in unison.

The KA-8E has a huge amount of 'Chime and Jangle" to its tone with an incredibly full rich lush sound, it is like two 4 string ukuleles playing together but even more so.

PLAYING
An eight-string is played just as you would a 4 string, with the pairs of strings being played as you would a single string. Picked or Strummed the tone is Big and FAT FAT FAT.
