In Kala’s new blog, “Me & Uke,” there’s an interview with founder Mike Upton, called “Meet Mike Upton.” He talks about such things as where he’s from (Mountain View, California) and when he first started playing the Ukulele (when he was two years old).
But it’s the last question that’s of most interest to us here:
Q: Last question, what is your favorite uke or U•Bass and why?
A: I just love the original Mahogany U•Bass with the black strings. To me, those were the magic. They just sound so great. The solid bodies are cool, but that’s not really my thing, I like the woody sound of the acoustic.
So there you have it folks. Mike likes the original Mahogany. There’s always something special about the first one.
Of course, I’m sure he likes all of Kala’s other instruments just as well, even if he didn’t say as much in the interview.
