I love my ukulele. It's so beautiful and so well made. Has a lovely quality sound. I enjoy hearing each string at every strumming with great volume. I love it's

NOTE: The first part of the video is recorded at the beach so there's lots of background noise. Halfway through the sound switches to an indoor recording so you can really hear the ukulele in action.

I live in Hawaii and the ukulele is a big part of my life, so I was really pleased to try out this concert sized Lohanu uke.

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

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

We have several Ukulele's at our home. My oldest daughter has a Kala we purchased in Kauaii while on vacation ($100), my second daughter has a starter/kids diamond head soprano ukulele she purchased years ago on Amazon ($35) and a Lanika concert ukulele ($90 pictured below).

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

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!

At 31 years old I had never played an instrument. Then along came Steven Universe and some darn catchy ukulele songs and I thought, "Hey, that looks fun, and the ukulele seems like a really friendly instrument. Let's do this!"

Ok so Im giving it 5 stars, and this is on the bell curve of cheap ukes. I teach ukulele and have purchased a number of $30-$40 ukuleles. I teach a L{earn} Ukulele class where students earn points for practice and can earn a ukulele when they reach 100... Two of my students requested specific colors, I ordered these based on reviews, and

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 man-hands.

So I receive my Aklot Concert Uke this week, and i couldn't be happier! The value for the money is incredible! You get everything shown in the photos,Plus there was a 5% off coupon on Amazon! So first to the delivery, It arrived well boxed from Amazon and is very well packaged from Aklot. It was wrapped in foam, and in perfect condition.

As of this moment, I'm convinced the Aklot concert and tenor ukuleles priced just under or over $50 with all the stuff that comes with them are indeed the best ukulele bargains on the internet.

This concert looks better than my two tenors. I think Aklot listened when I complained about the bird design on the headstock. It

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 like

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.

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

Let me just start off by saying I am by no means a professional in the field of music nor am I an ambitious music student studying to become the next Jake Shimabukuro.

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 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.

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

The best sounding soprano ukulele I have. It took about 3 weeks for the strings to really settle but now it stay in tune as well as my others. I sanded down the frets when I got it too because they were a little sharp. This is a great uke for any beginner or even intermediate

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

One of the hardest things, that sooner or later we are all forced to do is re-evaluate a judgement call we have made. Particularly if that re-evaluation leaves us in that most lonely position where we have to admit to ourselves that we were wrong.

This was a little bit of an upgrade for me, from the ADM Concert Mahogany. I bought two of them, for me and a friend.

I did have to return one of these, because there was very noticeable buzz on all 4 strings through the 1st 6 frets (no buzz with open strings), making it unplayable. I tried raising the saddle by a substantial

TO BE CLEAR: I give this instrument FIVE STARS! I love this uke for what it is, but let us not pretend that it is something it is not. PERFECT for a beginner--but a terrible choice for a student.

PRO: Low price and not a toy. Looks and plays just fine out of the box (once the strings are broken in).

CON: Durability.

It's a rare occurrence that anything deserves a perfect 5 🌟 review. I am a tough customer. Things have to be hitting all boxes hard for me to get this pumped!
