I bought a Mahalo ukulele a few months ago just to try and learn. I’ve fallen in love with playing butcwabted something with better sound. After researching online, reading tips and reviews of various ukes, I decided on Hola! I didn’t want to spend a fortune - I’m still so new and learning. But this uke exceeded my expectations!

I was thrilled to get this bundle. The Ukelele is beautiful and well made. The case is fantastic. Overall, for the price, it’s a pretty good deal. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the strings are fake. They did not pass the black light test. I contacted the seller. They don’t seem to be aware they are being sold fake

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

I got the concert 6 months ago and loved it. So I've decided to get a soprano for fun. I love the price, quality, the sweet sounds, rounded edge so I could play for hours, and the extra goodies to get you started! Aklot has put in a lot of thoughts and design in the instrument and the kit. This is my second Aklot! My soprano is louder

This was the second Lohanu ukulele I have purchased; I also have a concert sized Lohanu ukulele I purchased in November of 2016. I decided to buy a second ukulele and, after having no complaints with my first Lohanu uke, I settled on this tenor. I planned to replace the g string on this tenor with a low g string, so I purchased this

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.

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

This ukulele is incredible. Not only is it a beautiful blue (arguably even more beautiful in person than in the picture) it has a lovely tone, and the craftsmanship is amazing. One of my favorite things about this ukulele, and every Enya ukulele, is the carbon fiber strings. The strings produce such a warm sound. Much nicer of a sound

First of all, this is a great ukulele. I have quite a collection of ukuleles, so I like them to be very unique. This one definitely fits that category with the grape leaf carvings and the multiple sounds holes. Another thing that makes it distinctive is the dark wood coloring which is lovely. Other than the looks, it has a great sound.

I have been playing guitar for about 8 years, and I tent to always get very nice high end instruments since normally "you get what you pay for" applies for them. This is my first Ukelele and my children like to play around with instruments as well, so I decided to give this a shot since I didn’t want to pay a lot for something

Most important part of my review is that this is a beautiful, well made ukulele that has a rich and full sound. No string buzzing, and no "plinky" ukulele sound. Finish is beautifully crafted, and the tattoo design is a knockout. This looks so much better in person, as the photos don't show the warm mahogany tones well. My niece

First, this is a beautiful looking ukulele (if you are into the kind of look this one has). Strangely enough, I am not usually into the look of the lighter woods, but because this uke has the etched Sun design around the soundhole and the Auspicious clouds design on the fretboard, it made it very interesting. I was looking for a Tenor

Good quality and perfect for a beginner or expert. I bought a concert uke and it fits me much better than a soprano because my fingers are just too big and clumsy.

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

The metal of each fret extends a bit, it's jagged and if you aren't careful sliding your hand to change notes, it can scratch you or worse. I had to tap each down with the handle of a screw driver.
