This ukulele is great in just about every way. Its is very light and comfortable to hold. The design is nice and smooth, with no hard edges, everything is well rounded. The action is perfect to my liking. I got the black one and it is a very good looking ukulele. It's very sleek and the thin body makes it feel nice under your arm, not to

I had high hopes for this ukulele; it’s been talked up by 2 people online whose judgment and knowledge I trust. And overall it is a fine little ukulele. On the positive side; it has a great sound and sustain and it looks really good . It is easy to play. So, I can recommend it as it as is. The aqua green color is lovely and the

This is a great starter ukulele, or even a great second ukulele for someone that place. It’s a very affordably concert size ukulele and easy to play. It plays in tune up and down the neck, which is important thing to look for when purchasing a ukulele. The extra things added or a nice bonus such as the tuner and strap and carrying

A small story of how I found the Ranch Ukulele. I am a high school teacher of 30+ years and for the first time ever am facilitating several independent studies classes. One young man selected the music industry careers as his topic for the semester. I asked if he played an instrument and his response of "no, but I want to" started a

My Thoughts:I purchased this a while ago to accompany a 26 Professional. Now that I have had some time with it I felt ready to share some things. First, I do think you get a lot more your money. The 21 inch is slightly smaller than I’m used to but it still played some happy tunes.The Brand is “Ranch,” and this is the UK-21 Soprano

What a deal! Please note in the description all the extras you get for the price. I bought a similar ukulele for my wife which cost 30% more, had NO extras, and sounds about the same. I also own a baritone ukulele and was surprised that the size of the concert model is not too small for my hands although I have average size

Let me start this review by saying I know NOTHING about playing an instrument besides the tambourine. Back in my teens a friend taught me how to play 2 very basic songs in the guitar and then I gave up. The guitar seemed complicated and big and inconvenient.

I'm a sixteen year-old guy who normally plays guitar, but I wanted to try out ukulele too as kind of an add-on instrument. I got this as a Christmas gift from my parents last month. It's my first uke, so I wanted one on the cheaper side...but the instrument itself doesn't sound cheap at all!STRINGS: As other reviewers stated, the nylon

This truly is the best price for a soprano ukulele. Granted, it is laminated wood, but you wouldn't be able to tell. The structure is good and the strings are better then the ones you'll find on a store bought ukulele (I know this from past purchase at a store). I had trouble keeping my strings tuned for more then a few seconds, but

I received this ukulele last week. I wasn’t sure what to expect because I haven’t had a uke from this company yet. I can honestly say I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this instrument. The mahogany has a satin finish with a decorative roping around the sound hole. The tuners are closed but have a clear covering which I

This little ukulele and starter kit are a fantastic value for the price! The instrument itself is good quality, and produces a nice bright sound. I was very happy to just give it a quick tune and start playing right out of the box. Strings are nicely placed with low action, so it was easy to get a great sound on day one. After about 3

I'm including a video review as a way of supplementing what other reviewers have already said. This is a nice little ukulele --it's the Kala KA-15S Mahogany Soprano-- and I like the concept of "starter" kit; it addresses the things -- tuning and a few initial chords -- a new player needs most. I would prefer a clip-on tuner

I gotta admit, I never imagined myself playing a ukulele before. A while back we were doing a campfire on the beach and a friend started playing a ukulele. It sounded pretty good and was much easier to carry around than a full size guitar. After doing a little more research I came upon the Kala ka15s ukulele and placed an order for the

I almost can't believe how good this uke is for the price. It just doesn't seem possible.THE GOOD: The ukulele is made of a laminate wood of course (you are not going to get solid wood for anywhere near this price), but the wood is beautiful and the binding is good too. The tuners are gear tuners which makes it very easy to tune. I

so this ukulele is a soprano, meaning that it's the smallest kind you can buy. In order to keep the neck proportional they probably had to dock the amount of frets, but that's fine. That's my only complaint. The wood is beautiful and it sounds extremely pretty.SOME TIPS- stretch your strings to season them and keep your ukulele tuned for

Previously I wrote a review regarding the Makala Shark Bridge Soprano Ukulele. Unfortunately, with that particular uke, it arrived in very disappointing fashion.

I've wanted another ukulele for years now, did a TON of video watching, review reading, etc, & dollar for dollar, as for a uke I can afford anyway, this one always came out ahead.

I have been talking about buying a ukulele for years, but never actually wanted to make the buy. What if I didn't use it? What if it didn't sound good?

The tuner is the most important and useful tool in this kit. Make sure you set it to the Ukelele setting (once you insert the battery and turn on the power button, keep pressing until you see the Ukelele setting - just keep clicking until you see it, then you're good to go). Also, the strap doesn't connect to the typical strap knobs

Bondi is a great company to deal with if you're looking to purchase a beginner's starter bundle. It includes all the essentials and then some! This is my second ukulele, so I didn't need everything that came with it, but the additional accessories are nice to have. I especially like the bag - the colors and design choices set them apart

I had gotten the blue color and it was pretty much what it looks like in the photo. It’s made with real wood but it feels like it has an acrylic coat on it.
