Kala Ukes – Small But Serious

In October 2009, Music Trades magazine–a trade publication for music retailers and buyers, published a nice little article about Mike Upton and Kala Brand Music Co.

The article, entitled “Take My Ukulele Seriously!” profiles Mike and his business.

Some juicy tidbits from the article:

  • Guitarists can learn to play the Ukulele almost instantly
  • Children can learn to play the ukulele then transfer their knowledge of chords, strumming and melody to the guitar
  • From the beginning, Kala began offering ukuleles in non-traditional shapes and a variety of tonewoods
