Like all Uke’s I’ve played, my Klos has problems maintaining true pitch while playing chords. I’d like to see the saddle with a thinner profile so the bridge could be lowered and still have a reasonable amount of bridge exposed once lowered. I didn’t care for wood backup plate used to hold strap pin in place. It has a very good total quality. The final finish is good. Over all I give it 4 stars.
My Klos carbon fiber tenor ukulele arrived in perfect condition and on time. The craftsmanship and finish are lovely, and the sound is loud and clean. While the nut width is 1.375", the string spacing is generous, making for easy, clean chord shapes. This is a dramatic improvement on my prior travel ukulele, and may be my favorite over-all. Well done!
The carbon fiber uke is crystal clear, with great resonance. It's like playing glass. Almost a little too perfect for the beach. I'm actually going to try swapping the strings for a warmer sound. I would give 5 stars, but it came with a tiny scratch on the back. No big deal. 4.5 stars.
Wonderful... but still getting used to the very tight curve of the neck profile. I prefer a flatter neck profile, but I’m beginning to get used to my KLOS Hybrid Tenor. Even during Covid, some of us are getting together weekly (masked and socially-distanced) for our regular song circle and even doing a regularly-scheduled gig. Seattle is still experiencing smoke from wildfires so no outdoor gatherings this week. I haven’t been able to actually show off my KLOS CF Hybrid Tenor yet. I may get the opportunity on Friday at another ukulele gathering (Kanikapila) in Snohomish. Meanwhile playing at home and getting used to the Tenor size and the neck profile. Great voice and volume. Love the CF look and feel. Thank you, KLOS!
Great ukulele. I got the delux and it is certainly the loudest acoustic ukulele I have. It also has great sustain even on the higher notes. Being a hard synthetic material the sound is a lot brighter than my wooden ukes. That's not a problem it just sounded strange at the beginning. It looks amazing and certainly has a wow factor. My only gripe is the battery pack which is a 3V brick in a velcro pouch accessed through the sound hole under the strings. It can be tricky to manoeuvrer the battery into a black pouch in the dark recesses of the body while fighting with the strings. My other electro accoustic ukuleles use a CR32 pill battery embedded in to the side of the ukulele beside the tuner. This is so much easier. I've taken one star for this design flaw.
I love how light and portable this ukulele is. The best part is how amazing it sounds whether playing it naturally or plugging it in. Great job Klos!
Carbon fiber is an infusion of the most durable fibers and the strongest resin, commonly used in the aerospace industry. This creates a lighter, more durable instrument, with more volume than a similarly sized wooden counterpart.
KLOS carbon fiber is never post-processed—our guitars are naturally beautiful without sanding, polishing or painting. This is the way they come out of the press. There will often be small marks, crease lines, or fiber distortions from this process, true hallmarks of a genuine carbon fiber guitar.
