Kala Concert

Why does my ukulele sound so bad?

I have a kala concert ukulele and it sounds like two hippos belly flopping on a sea of treacle. What's wrong with it? The strings are Aquila. My cheap and tacky soprano makes a noise like fairies dancing between the moon beams in comparison.

I love your description of why it sounds bad - brilliant!

Seriously - as you have another uke that sounds good, I can safely assume that the Kala is actually in tune...

I strongly suspect a set up issue, or bad strings. Re the latter - it can happen - occasionally you get a bad pack of strings, so if you are able to spend the cash on a new pack - try a change. Are the strings new - do they need stretching?

If it is set up, if the action is off, this can affect your intonation (which is the term for how the uke stays in tune when fretted - many ukes can be bang on tuned when open, but fret them and they go out of tune). I include a link or two below to beginners guides on the subject of intonation. Work through the steps one by one.

Good luck
