Simply the best entry level ukes on the market. Sound and playability usually suffer at these affordable prices but not with Makala. These ukes have a fantastic sound, great looks and are easy on the wallet. Available in multiple colors, and now (2017) blue and green are also available in concert scale! Because we are a fan of puns we shall also include Kala's description : "The Makala Shark line is well-suited for casual players looking for something colorful and fun to sink their teeth into. The Shark is a terrific deal that also looks and sounds great—the perfect uke for anyone to bite into."
