Let us get to know your New Ukulele - Hola! Music Deluxe Series Soprano Ukulele
► Length - The overall length of this Soprano Ukulele is 21 inch.
► Materials - as you can see to your left, we chose one of the most popular woods to build the body of your Ukulele - Mahogany!
► The Fingerboard and Bridge which holds the strings are both made out of Walnut.
The Walnut is a popular wood used in many musical instruments, including guitars.
► The neck of the ukulele is made out of Nato.
► Bone Nut & Saddle - The Nut & Saddle in this ukulele are made out of Ox bone.
In most ukuleles out there, the nut & saddle are made out of plastic. The nut & saddle directly influence the tone and sound of the ukulele as they are in direct contact with the strings!
► Aquila Strings - We installed Premium Italian Aquila Nylgut Strings to make sure this ukulele produces the best sound it can. Aquila Strings are very popular and any experienced player would recommend it.
► This Mahogany Soprano Ukulele has a THIN layer of Lacquer.
The thin layer of Lacquer keeps the natural characteristics of the wood, giving it a rich warm tone.
The combination of quality woods and a thin layer of Lacquer along with Aquila Strings gives you a beautiful looking instrument without compromising the sound.
► Many folks overlook this tiny BUT USEFUL part:
The Strap Pin.
In most ukuleles out there, there is no strap pin and therefore you can not use a regular strap to hold your ukulele.
In this ukulele the pin is already built-in and you can easily use the strap you get with this purchase.
You also get a Padded Bag, Strap & 3 Picks!
A few words about tuning your new Ukulele:
Are you finding your new ukulele always needs tuning every time you want to play it?
This is really common, particularly with new strings. Nylon strings take a certain amount of stretching before they settle down and hold their tune.
How to solve:
Tune it to the desired note, then pull up on the string over the sound hole to give it a bit of a stretch. That'll take it down about 2 whole notes, tune it back up and repeat until it stays in tune. A lot of folks who maybe aren't used to stringed instruments, especially nylon strings, get frustrated, but don't worry, these are decent strings, they just need a good stretch!

I wasn't expecting much at this price point, so I was pleasantly surprised.
+ The body seems to be made of actual wood rather than the plastic-wood laminate I was expecting. Plastic is easier to care for, but wood gives a richer sound.
= The frets and tuning gears are made of real metal.
= The binding, nut, bridge, strings and knobs are made of genuine plastic.
= The strings (high G at the top, followed by middle C, E and A) do come with a cardboard Aquila tag attached, as in the picture. The main selling point for Aquila strings is that they bring out the best in a cheap ukulele, but I'm not sure if that's necessary in this case.
This is where it seems the manufacturer cut corners to keep the price low. Most of the defects are only cosmetic, and the rest were easily fixed.
- Inside the body, at the top and bottom edges of the sound hole, there were some splinters. It was easy to remove the splinters without damaging the instrument, and that got rid of the buzzing I'd experienced the first few times I played.
- The fret wire ends are not completely smooth or flush with the wood. The burrs aren't big enough to scratch me or interfere with playing, but when I run my hand up and down the neck I can definitely feel them. I could fix this in a few minutes with a bit of sandpaper, but it doesn't bother me that much.
- The tuning gears look and feel very cheap. There's nothing wrong with them; they work, and will hopefully continue to work, but I won't be surprised if I need to replace them eventually.
- I can see some irregularities in the glue where the neck joins the body.
= The finish is very thin; you can easily see and feel the grain and flaws in the wood. I think this gives the instrument individual character and makes it look more "real;" someone else might compare it to scratches and dents in a car. It doesn't affect the sound either way.
+ Frets are correctly spaced. (This is very important, especially in a beginner instrument.)
+ Fretboard is straight and flat, as it should be.
+ Nut and bridge are at the correct height.
+ Strings were properly installed.
I am very happy with the way this instrument sounds. It has a good, clear tone, and has not buzzed at all since I removed the splinters. The fretboard and string spacing are just right for small hands. Compared to a steel-stringed guitar, it is very easy to correctly fret the notes and learn new chords on an ukulele.
An experienced musician will want something nicer (read: much more expensive), but this is an excellent choice for a beginner.
With metal frets and geared tuners, this is a very good value for a student ukulele. I was surprised how well it played too right out of the box. Painted ukuleles may be generally seen as inferior in quality, but this instrument would change your mind.
Some of the student uke's I've bought have a smaller neck which can be a problem. Students generally keep their left hand at the end of the neck where it meets the head. This is something you don't realize when you are first learning, but your left hand can get crowded at the end of the neck if the head is cut to large. Especially if you have larger hands or longer fingers.
And it came with an excellent set of strings too. I've had to replace the strings on all the other student ukes I've bought which can add $5-10 to the cost of the ukulele.
I don't expect it to last forever but its a great uke to start on. And, for what I paid, I wouldn't be afraid to strip the paint off, put stickers on it or otherwise allow a student to "customize" it!
I plan to record a couple songs on my orange creme Hola ukulele - you can go to Facebook and search UKE3.org if you'd like to see how it plays.
Have a great day!
-Decent sound & tone (a real instrument that can hold a tune)
-Edges/ends of the fret bars are a bit sharp... they don't seem sharp enough to cause a cut, but may cause light scratches.
-Fret board looks a little sloppy if you look very closely
-I feel like the brown bridge & fret board (rosewood) look a little strange with the shiny, jet black body & head, but that might actually be normal.
I've been playing ukulele for a couple years now (I own a Makala MK-C) & would say the sound of this uke is decent. I also really like the slotted bridge, which would make changing the strings much faster and easier than a tie style bridge. I bought this used ("like-new") & it unfortunately arrived with a large crack in the joint between the body & the neck, but I think that is mostly due to the packaging it came in rather than it's own quality. (I don't think the place I got it from sells many ukuleles, so they probably just didn't realize how fragile they are... The box is also a bit crumpled.) I was surprised at how well it held a tune even with the crack, though. It definitely has a better sound & feel than my plastic (water, weather, & child-proof) ukulele that cost about the same amount, but this uke is not quite as durable.
