Which model is right for you?
The Kasha Ukulele
The Kasha ukulele is the foundation that DeVine Guitars and Ukuleles was built off of. It's full sound, wide tonal response and long sustain change the way most people think of the ukulele. The Kasha uke has a shallow waist allowing for more of the top to resinate the lower tones a little more. Over all, the Kasha ukulele is a very open sounding instrument with lots of volume and sustain. The Kasha model plays equally well strumming and finger picking. If you were to compare it to a guitar, it would be the Dreadnought of the uke world.
The Muse Ukulele
Named for it's ability to inspire, the Muse ukulele is sure to bring out your inner artist. It's tighter waist and sloping shoulders give it a look that suggests precision and accuracy. The Muse model ukulele is based off of the same bracing system as the Kasha ukulele but designed for a more precise style of playing. The Muse offers a slightly more detailed sound. You will tend to hear the strings more independently of each other. This makes it just slightly better for finder picking or classical styles of playing. If you were to compare it to a guitar, it would be the Jumbo or Grand Auditorium of the uke would.
