Kala KA-SLNG Mahogany Gloss Long Neck Soprano Ukulele. Like the tone and size of the classic soprano uke, but looking for a little extra range and a bit more sustain?
Kala's long-neck soprano series offers just that. Kala's long-neck soprano series offers just that. It has the same soprano body size as the KA-S but a concert scale neck.
Only a little more expensive than Kala's own, industry standard, KA-S series, the Gloss series brings a genuine upturn in tonally quality. Not only does the gloss finish render the instrument stylishly attractive to the eye but it hardens the surface of the body, imparting a brighter tone.
greater degree of both volume and note sustain is also an intrinsic part of the Gloss range, largely created by the Nu-Bone nut and saddle. Traditional white binding, top and bottom, beautifully off-set the gloss finish.
In the case of the KA-SLNG, the extended concert scale neck length (encompassing 18 frets) allows a noticeable increase in physical comfort for anyone who finds the Soprano neck length slightly restricting, and it offers a lengthier sustain for those long lingering melody notes. All this combines to create a Soprano Uke of serious tonality and volume.
well-balanced and very versatile little instrument and a whole lot of ukulele for the money.
And if you like the style of this but are looking for a bit more warmth and richness of tone, then try out their step-up long neck series, the KA-SSLNG which comes with a solid spruce top.
