Has anyone tried either/all the Kala, Ohana and the Oscar Schmit 5 strings?
And can compare them to each other?

Sorry, I haven't played any 5-string, but would also like to hear others' experiences. And Ohana CK28-5 anyone? If I went for a 5-string, that's the one I would choose.

I have the Ohana 5 string, and it is very nice. I haven't tried the others, so I can't comment on them.

I don't have a 5, but I did recently get an 8 string. I had been thinking it would be more difficult to fret and barre, but I was fortunate to be able to play one before I bought it. The set up he did was wonderful and it was as easy to fret as any other of my ukes. Some music sounds better on the 8 and some sound better on one of the 4s. It's fun to switch them out.

^^^ Yeah, I'm waiting impatiently for the Ohana 8-string concert...
