Does anybody ever try a KALA MANGO TENOR ?
I'm close to order one but I'd like to ear some comments about it first.
Can anybody help me ?

I already have a PONO PTO and a KALA Archtop.
Peace & Ukes

I live in France so it's a bit far from San Diego, and there's one available in my country. Did you ever try these ukulele ?
How does it sounds compare to Mahogany ?

i personally have no idea. I play on a cedar/mahogany pono. BUT, if it makes any difference, Keola Beamer has/had a solid mango guitar that was his favorite. He claims that the mango is more fragile than koa. On the interview, he neva say why or how da sound was different den his odda guitars.

I just bought one about a week ago. Needed on that I could take out and not worry about. My "K" amaka to precious to me. My Mango definitely is not a true sounding, a koa uke, but I was suprisingly impressed with its performance so far. The grains on the laminant mango wood (I think) is very pretty.

Hope that helps
