Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

September 15, 2014 | New review: Kala KA-GTR Tenor Guitar

Click for closeup

We've had the privilege of a hands-on sneak preview of the new Kala Tenor Guitar. We had our first glimpse in a noisy Summer NAMM trade show floor, but the last week we were able to get more intimately acquainted in the privacy of our own studio and take some good pictures.

The 5ths tuning allows the mandolinist to transition easily to the slightly larger scale of a guitar as well as play in lower accompaniment range. The narrow neck Kala is arguably more uke-like in feel, which makes it perfect for the mandolinist. Take some time to read our review for more details, but spoiler alert--we love this instrument and plan to purchase one of our own.

You will want one, too!
