More about Kala

Kala Brand Music Co. has been the world's favorite ukulele brand for over 15 years. Founded in the sunny Californian city of Petaluma by Mike Upton, Kala has become synonymous with quality, affordability, and innovation in the world of ukuleles.

Mike Upton's love for the ukulele began while living in Hawaii during the 1990s. He realized the need for accessible, affordable, and well-built ukuleles, which led to the creation of Kala. Starting from a converted chicken hatchery in 2005, Kala quickly gained a reputation for its exquisite designs and exceptional quality, becoming a leading name in the ukulele industry.

Kala's diverse catalog features a variety of sizes, styles, and tonewoods, setting it apart from other brands. It has been the go-to choice for numerous artists, including Vance Joy, Twenty One Pilots, and Walk Off the Earth. Kala's innovative approach has introduced game-changing products like the Original U•BASS®, the world's first ukulele bass, and The Waterman, an all-weather, plastic ukulele.

The brand's commitment to making music accessible led to the donation of over 10,000 Waterman ukuleles to American schools, supporting music programs across the country. Kala's dedication to high-quality instruments is further demonstrated by the introduction of the Kala® Elite USA Series, featuring locally crafted ukuleles.

With a rich history and an unparalleled passion for the ukulele, Kala continues to be a cherished brand among musicians worldwide.
