Concert Ukeleles
There are four common types of ukes out there: soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone. The soprano was the original, followed up quickly with the concert size uke. The 15-inch scale length and slightly larger body size deliver a deeper tone and a bit more volume, while maintaining the sweetness and instantly recognizable ukulele sound.

The Lanikai LU Series
Lanikai's most popular and affordable models, the LU series features classic designs and beautiful wood, with plenty of attention to detail. All LU series ukuleles include an instruction booklet to guide you with these easy to learn instruments.

Nato Top, Back, and Sides
Nato, often referred to as "Eastern Mahogany," delivers wonderful playablility and tone without an accompanying high price tag. Used with Ukeleles, it provides a nice, pronounced mid-range with a mellow high-end.

White Binding
The body of the LU-21C features white binding, for a nice contrast/framing of the red-tinted finish, and an all-around beautiful instrument.

Rosewood Fretboard
Just as with guitars, rosewood makes an ideal fretboard tone wood for ukes.

Die-Cast Tuners
Lanikai's die-cast tuning machines provide solid tuning, so strum away confidently.

Would recommend to any beginner.
Sumo
At first it loses its tune but thats just because the strings need to stretch out a little and that goes away the more you play it.
Josh
It has such a great sound to it, and is such good quality.

Ok, I know a lot of people are saying this isn't a good instrument. On the contrary, it is fantastic. This little thing gives off a great sound. IT IS NOT A TOY. This is an instrument, and it sounds like one too-- but you don't have to dish out $200. This is a great starting uke, and I much prefer it to a soprano size because they tune the same, but the concert size is easier to hold and to play chords.
Now, if you go onto almost ANY amazon uke review, you'll get this, "This thing is a piece of junk. Goes out of tune the second I hit the string. Hate it. Never buying from this seller again." Ok, sometime's that's true, but what those people don't know is.....
It takes a while for uke strings to stretch out.
Magic. So, while people here may say it goes out of tune, that's because they're nice aquilla-gut stings are brand-spanking new, and since they're made out of nylon and gut, they take longer to stretch out.
Shipping: So then they talk about damaged fretboards, body, stuff like that. If you'd rather not have that, I'd recommend wandering over to your local music store. They might even have one that's been on the shelf so the strings will be stretched and ready to play. That's what I did.

Anyway, hope this helped clear some things up :)
Happy Uke-ing!

I went to an OMEA convention and went to a vendor stand with a variety of Ukulele and the best one there was the Lanikai S-C. I wanted to save some money so I decided to go with the LU-21C. It's the same quality of build, but has a mahogany plywood top instead of a spruce top. This means that it lacks some higher overtones (it's warmer, darker, what ever you want to say.) I've played many crappy instruments for around this price range and bellow and this one is not a crappy instrument. The only thing that needed some set up was the nut, but that is a common problem and a quick fix on most low end guitars and ukes. Most manufacturers ship such instruments out with a high nut. Are you not sure you want a ukulele? Get this one to find out.

I am new to the Ukulele, and read reviews on many sites about this particular Ukulele. I just received it today and haven't been able to put it down since I took it out of the box. It plays well, the sound is great, and it came with really nice Aquila strings. I had read that it didn't hold tune well initially, until the strings are broken in, but I am actually really impressed with how well it stays in tune right out of the box. For a beginner uke, and for the price, I think it is well worth the purchase.

I have only played ukuleles by borrowing my friends'. Even though I'm only a beginner, I've played the guitar for years. Therefore, I know most of the things I should be looking for. Just like Andy said, "The action is good, no buzzing strings, fretboard is nice, neck is straight, sounds good and feels like quality construction." I agree with him. It's worth the price, you can't go wrong with it, especially if you're a beginner like me. I hope this helped!

I really don't think any ukulele can be bought solely from reading reviews. I made this mistake when I bought this model based on the high reviews it received. Unfortunately, the 3 different LU-21C's the local music store had were all dented, chipped, and labeled as new. The night I picked it up (when I put it on hold), I was not as excited to have it in my hands. The first fret was difficult to play (it could be because the neck was very high, but I'm not sure) and it was not very easy to strum. Being a first time ukulele player, of course, I knew it would be difficult, but not to the point where I didn't enjoy playing. I didn't really like the sound of this model, but then again, we all have different opinions! However, when I returned it, I found another model that perfectly suited me (Lanikai LU-22CFM Concert Uke). Since I'm reviewing the LU-21, I won't talk much about the LU-22. However, I strongly recommend first time ukulele players to check out a music store before purchasing a ukulele. You have to find the right one for you! I'm glad I returned this one because I found a different model that I absolutely LOVE so much that I think about it all the time! You have to find one that inspires you to play! Personally, this wasn't the uke for me. But it could be for you! good luck! Happy searching!

I bought this uke totally on a whim and I couldnt be happier. I did not know much about ukuleles, however I did do some research into what type of ukulele I should buy and this model kept coming up as reliable, sturdy and has a good sound. I've been playing guitar for years and had never played the ukulele before and this was incredibly easy to pick up and play. At first it loses its tune but thats just because the strings need to stretch out a little and that goes away the more you play it. Otherwise I would highly reccomend this uke to anyone who's just starting out playing the ukulele and wants a ukulele that sturdy, well made and has a good sound. It also makes a great ukulele for anyone who has been playing the ukulele for a while. All around this is a great instrument and I highly reccomend it to anyone who wants to learn how to play the ukulele. If you are reading this review buy this product, you will not be disapointed!!
