Okina UK100 Soprano Ukulele with Rosewood Fingerboard - Natural
Diamond Head DU-150 Ukulele, Natural
Mahalo U-30OR Painted Economy Soprano Ukulele (Orange)
Lanikai LU-11 Soprano Ukulele
Kala KA-15S Mahogany Soprano Ukulele
The Okina, Diamond Head and Mahalo were all under $30 at the time and within $2 price of each other. Of the three, I thought that the Mahalo was the best offering both visually and in terms of tone quality. The Okina had a poor sound quality even compared to my own 20- and 40-year-old ukuleles (which had the original strings). A string upgrade to Aquila strings helped significantly, but even then, the Okina still had a far worse sound quality at this price level.
The Diamond Head and Mahalo both sounded better even with the stock strings and each includes a very nice (for this price) little gig bag. Incidentally, what the Mahalo product description says is a "color-matching brown gigbag" ended up being black, but black is pretty standard gig bag color. The Mahalo has the most "island" look to my eyes and the best sound. Much of the sound can probably be attributed to the strings which are more substantial than the Diamond Head's. That being said, it still makes financial and practical sense to get the Mahalo since it's so near the same price (compared to the Diamond Head) and has better strings already installed. I've also reviewed the Lanikai and Kala on their own pages.
For starters, I paid $20 for this uke - a steal. Yeah, the construction is simple (it's a $20 ukulele, that's no shocker) and the sound was crap, but after restringing the instrument with some Aquila Nylgut strings, it sounds great. The action is good, it stays in tune (geared, dolphin-shaped tuners work great), and has a light, plucky sound that's easy to fall in love with. The paint finish was smooth and free of blemishes, and I tweaked the appearance of mine by adding a few personalized, white decals (Arrgh!)
This is one of those ukes that everyone should own, as they're a lot of fun to play, they're easy (and fun) to customize, and they're extremely affordable. This would be great for children, music students, beginners looking at trying out a new instrument, or for any ukulele enthusiast out there looking to pick up a beach/camping/work uke on the go (if it gets damaged, it's a whopping $20 to replace).
One drawback - the bag it comes with, as someone mentioned already, is complete crap. It's little more than a grocery bag, so if you're looking at taking this thing around places, I'd definitely spend the $10 or $20 and purchase a soprano-sized gig bag (I bought a Lanikai one here on Amazon for $12 over the summer, and it's awesome). That's my only complaint, and the only reason I'm giving this 4 out of 5 stars is because one would have to purchase a set of nicer strings ($6 - $9) in order for this instrument to sound decent.
