A Nice Ukulele
on June 8, 2011
I bought this ukulele in a store without reading any reviews, and I was surprised to see the negative reviews for it here on Amazon. It may be a little overpriced, but mine has been pretty good about staying in tune. The other reviewers may just need to tighten the pegs.
The unfinished wood body makes it easier to keep a hold on it, which is nice. It's a delicate instrument but seems like good quality, and the sound is great. I compared it with a couple soprano ukes in the store and there was no comparison. It has a much thicker, richer sound than the little ukes. It feels and plays like a real instrument and not a toy. My only big complaint is with the gig bag. It only opens at the bottom, which makes it difficult to get the uke in, and could potentially knock it out of tune while sliding it in. It's better to invest in a hard case for the long run, but this one will do in a pinch.
All in all, I'm happy with my uke.
