Kai are manufactured in the same factory as Baton Rouge ukuleles, so when we saw the first production models in 2018, we already knew we wouldn't have to worry about quality.

Where they do differ is in looks and features. All Kai models feature a side sound porthole on the upper bout, facing the player to offer "personal monitoring", especially useful if playing with a number of other players
