This new Kai concert is super cool. The first thing that strikes you is the amazing look – lovely rich cedar top with red paduak wood binding, abalone rosette and figured laminate bocote back and sides. The next thing you’ll notice is the sound. It has a very beautiful warm tone, and loud too. It really does sound like an ukulele twice the price. It also features a bound fretboard for comfort and a side sound port so you as the player gets to hear the sound crystal clear. I’m convinced this is one of the very best value concerts in this price bracket out there, especially when you factor in the free padded branded gig bag.
