I still have my Cordoba 2 years after purchasing it, and it is hands down one of the sweetest voiced ukes I have. I also have several Makala Dolphins (Makala is Kalas' lower end wingman). My Dolphins outpace most of my more expensive ukes. From my own experience, if I want another solid top uke, I would not hesitate to get another Cordoba. I will never waste another penny on a Kala, though I am always on the lookout for a good deal on the Makala Dolphins!
