The Kala KA-CARA-BUR-T Salted Caramel Exotic Burl Tenor Ukulele is made of Cypress Burl.
Burl is the gnarled lumps and bumps that form on tree trunks or by the roots under the bark. This creates beautiful, iridescent, free-flowing shapes in the wood pattern. This Cypress Burl ukulele has a wide range of caramel colors, from dark to light, swirling through it - so we like to call it "Salted Caramel".
Kala's Exotic Burl series includes some of the most daring ukes on the market today, and in this way, the KA-CARA-BUR-T is no exception. The stunning Salted Caramel Exotic Burl Tenor Ukulele is shaped for comfort, and its rosewood-topped mahogany neck and Graph Tech NuBone nut and saddle will have your notes leaping off the fingerboard. Other pro features and appointments include mahogany neck and body binding and long-lasting D'Addario Clear Nylon strings.
The tenor ukulele
These are the instruments that are both associated with the Hawaiian Islands and becoming more and more popular in pop culture. The tenor, which is currently the most popular size, is what most solo ukulele performers choose for their main instrument. The bigger construction adds more bass and punch to the tone, which is great for an unaccompanied sound. You'll find that the Kala Salted Caramel Exotic Burl Tenor Ukulele gives you impressive volume because of its larger size. And the longer scale length also widens the fret spacing for a more comfortable playing experience.

They design and manufacture over 120 different models made from a variety of woods, including lacewood, koa, mango, mahogany, flame/spalted maple, bocote, acacia, and the classic spruce top/rosewood back and sides combo.
