Visited the local shop today and they just received a KALA KA-SLNG. I had though a while back that their long neck was a tenor neck, but definitely a concert scale. Tuned it and played and was surprised at the sound quality since it is a laminate and has Aquilas on it! Intonation was good too. I bought it for less than $80.00 including tax. Got home and compared to OHANA SK-38 with Martin fluorocarbons. Not quite as loud, but quality of sound was pretty darn good. Again, surprised. Action is low but not as low as OHANA. It is now my "carry/travel" uke.

Where did you get the uke at that price?

I saw them for $78 on Amazon, $84 at SamAsh.com and $84 on AustinBazaar. Pretty good value I think, really thinking about it!!!
