View Full Version : 8 String Pono or Kala

Hi all! My first post, and it's a question. I have 4 string ukes, and would like an 8 string. I have it narrowed down to a Kala KA-ASAC-T8, solid acacia, or a Pono MGT8, solid mango. Both are about $440. I can't play them in my city, so any thoughts, feelings or suggestions are welcome!

Find a vendor with a good return policy and try them both! Try Mim's Ukes, pretty sure she can get both of those. Or Uke Republic. Both of the shop owners are regulars here on UU as well.

Thank you! I should call them and ask their advice. :-)

Try the both - as much as I like the quality of Kala these days, I personally think that all Ponos are a step above most Kalas
