most fun you can have for the price
Marcas, 14.12.2014
I bought this one night after coming home from the pub, and it is the best drunken decision I have ever made.

As for build quality, I have two over-zealous young cousins who constantly give it a thorough quality check, and it has so far not shown up a single scratch. the black finish is perfectly painted, and all the frets and are nicely cut.

I am not much of a ukulele enthusiast, but it sounds lovely to my ears, what's an added bonus is how easy it is to pick up and play.

I have deducted a star because it's only flaw is that it doesn't hold tune, requiring to be tuned almost every time its played. but other than that? nothing. absolutely brilliant.

Bargain Starter Uke
Recaster Guitar Service, 11.07.2020
If you just want to get yourself something to get started on the ukulele this is a great instrument to get off the blocks. As always with such economy instruments they lack the finesse of more expensive instruments, but 'you get what you pay for'. Be prepared to accept some imperfections to the finish, other than that a sound and 'true' instrument.

Birthday present for my girldfriend
xTaicho, 20.10.2018
My girlfriend always talked about how much she likes ukulele, so i figured I'm going to give her this rather inexpensive one for her birthday. I was really sceptical when I ordered it, because the price was just too good to be true for an instrument.

It turned out, it's really just harley benton back at it. Sure, it's not really comparable to the some of the big names out there but seriously for that price... there's nothing even in the 50¤ range from other brands that I like as much which is really weird.

Pros:
- rich tone
- nice playability
- that unbeatable pricing

Cons:
- although very good playability, the frets are kinda sharp on the edges
- the tuners are cheap
- some small impurities in the finish

All in all, this was just meant to get her into playing an instrument, but I'm really impressed by the price to quality ratio on this thing. It's worth every buck, and the next ukulele I'm gonna buy her will be a harley benton as well.

Just buy it, We all know you want it
Mehto, 13.05.2020
And if/when you end up buying this one and realise you didn't need it who cares. It's cheap, doesn't take that much of a space and it's much more easily hidden from a wife/girlfriend/boyfriend/significant other than new guitar.

Seriously though. This is a great little instrument to start learning new. For me Ukulele revealed to be incredibly fun to learn and you can basically take it with you where ever you go.
