This all-solid flame maple tenor ukulele is made in Kala's USA shop in Petaluma, CA.

While Kala is best known for their entry-level ukuleles, the craftsmanship on their US-made Elite models is absolutely top notch are on par with the work of more established builders like Martin and Kamaka.

The MAPL-ST's oversized "Super Tenor" body offers more warmth and bass than a standard tenor. The longer 19" scale results in higher string tension, which produces a little added punch and projection.

This is a beautiful uke with an amazing tone to match, and it's more affordable than similar US-made ukes.

Kala's Description

Going against the grain is literally what gives flame maple its beautiful perpendicular, undulating, almost iridescent stripes. Our Solid Flame Maple Super Tenor has contrasting Koa binding, rosette, headplate, and heel cap in a satin finish.

These muted, natural colors let the wood speak for itself… until you play it… then this ukulele will surprise you with the most commanding, clear, bright sound with even harmonics.

Our Super Tenor models come with a longer neck and have a longer body and a wider lower bout than our traditional Tenor ukulele. The longer neck has a 19” scale length and better fits the wider lower bout and longer body of the Super Tenor.

The Super Tenor has a deeper and warmer sound and resonance due to its increased lower bout size.
