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

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

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

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!

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.

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 like

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

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

“I have no complaints about the instrument itself, however the electronic tuner must have been made for a left handed Uke because it tunes it backwards. I tried it on my guitar also and had the same problem. Fortunately I am a musician and had played the Uke as a child, so I could pretty much tune it by ear. It's just a shame that 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.

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.

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.
