While most high end ukuleles need to be kept in a case with a humidifier and babied, this ukulele was designed to stay out of the case, ready to play at all times. KLOS Acoustic ukuleles are durable, with temperature and humidity having no effect on carbon fiber. Durable and reliable Carbon fiber is significantly more durable than wood, and more resilient to dents, cracking and the elements. While a carbon fiber ukulele is still an instrument that deserves respect and love, at KLOS they believe that it should be treated more like a piece of gear that is never left behind. Achieving the perfect playability is an art, and that’s what makes a ukulele easy to play.
The nut, frets,and bridge all have an influence on the string playability, getting them all to work together perfectly is what makes a ukulele feel like home. At KLOS they take playability very seriously, that’s why they put a lot of attention into leveling the frets, filing the nuts, and adjusting the saddles. Each ukulele then gets played up and down the neck by our inspectors to confirm it’s worthy to have a KLOS logo and go out the door.
How does a carbon fiber ukulele sound, compared to wood? If you do a blind test, most people can’t tell the difference. That being said, comparing carbon fiber to wood, there are a lot more variables that you can more precisely control to achieve a great sound, and that is exactly what they did.
The KLOS Full Carbon Ukulele is the pinnacle of modern technology and materials applied to ukuleles. The one piece design is made from one piece of carbon fiber that offers the ultimate ukulele experience. It’s designed to sound good, feel good, and be reliable, so you can rest assured that you have the strongest ukulele in the world. The fretboard on the neck is a composite synthetic ebony which does not expand or contract with temperature or humidity changes or with time. That means you will never have issues with sharp frets, and your great great grandchildren won’t either. The beautiful ebony-like fretboard is dense, durable and smooth.The headstock is a compact shape, making the overall length of the neck shorter. It makes tuning your strings just as comfortable, yet feel lighter. The tuners are the heaviest part of the neck, so keeping the weight of the tuners down, and having a lightweight carbon neck will make ukulele playing for hours even more enjoyable. The headstock break angle is 11 degrees, making it the optimal angle to have the perfect string force on the nut. This lowers the friction of the string on the nut, which lowers the chances of your strings going out of tune on their own, and makes tuning your strings more precise. When you look at the neck from a front view, you will also see that the strings go in almost a straight line, which also lowers the friction on the nut, which also helps create optimal tuning.
This is a lightly used ukulele and shows little to no signs of wear.
Comes with gig bag.
