Kala's banjo ukes will be available in soprano and concert sizes and are distinctively appointed with a luxuriant black satin finish, Remo Weatherking Banjo Head, deluxe geared tuners with black buttons, rosewood fingerboard, maple bridge with ebony cap, and a closed back design. The concert's hoop diameter measures 8 inches and features antique brass hardware with a closed back design. The soprano's hoop measures 6 inches and comes dressed in chrome with an open back design.

The banjo ukulele is recognized for its distinctive tone and ability to project sound in solo and ensemble settings. The banjo ukulele was originally designed by Alvin Keech in 1917 and was popularized by musicians such as George Formby and Roy Smeck. George Harrison favored the instrument in later years and recorded his song "Any Road" on banjo uke.
