My Kala has a rich sound and the two extra strings add resonance (Most ukuleles have four strings). The Flea has the hard shell back which makes for a bright sound -- especially when I'm picking rather than strumming. The Flea is fun to play and I carry it with me when I travel. In May of 2013 I gave the commencement speech at Pacific Islands University on Guam. I brought the Flea with me and even played it during my speech. I love that because of its unique pineapple shape I can stand it on a desk.
I bought my Flea through Amazon from True Joy Acoustics. The shipping company damaged the box and True Joy Acoustics made it right. I've become one of their biggest fans.
*There are four basic ukulele sizes -- the soprano (the smallest), the concert (just a little longer neck), the tenor (an even longer neck and a bigger box), and the baritone (still bigger and usually tuned similar to a guitar). Even though I own (and play) several soprano ukes I default to my concert and tenor instruments because I have big adult fingers.
All of these instruments and accessories are fulfilled through Amazon.com.
