5.0 out of 5 stars Bob Marley :D 6 Jun 2011
Great Ukulele for beginners. Apparently the Ukulele is hand made, I believe this is not mentioned in the description.

I'm having great fun with it. At first you might have problems with the Ukulele going out of tune quickly after tuning it. The strings need about a day to stretch out a little. After that the strings are fine.

Although the strings are fine, you can't really expect to have great strings for a low budget Ukulele. So I would recommend that you buy a set of new strings. This can change and improve the Ukulele a lot and you can enjoy much better sounds for only a small price. Personally, I have purchased a set of Aquila Nylgut Soprano Ukulele (key of C) strings which are recommended by a lot of people. They sell them for around 6 on amazon.

Advice for the beginners:
Bob Marley songs are easy to learn and great fun to sing along to.
Don't bother paying for Ukulele tuners, if you have an Android or an iPhone, I'm sure you can find some sort of free tuner app. I use "DaTuner" on my HTC. Otherwise, there are tuners online. ([...])

For reference - Estimate string frequencies for a tuned Ukulele:
G String (4th) - 392Hz
C String (3rd) - 262Hz
E String (2nd) - 330Hz
A String (1st) - 440Hz

5.0 out of 5 stars Great instrument for the price 17 Jun 2011
This is a great ukulele for the price, and I'm extremely happy with my purchase. There have already been several good reviews of the ukulele on Amazon, so I thought I'd try to summarise some of the uke's good and bad points.

GOOD
* The ukulele has a nice tone, plays well and stays in tune. There are no frets which buzz or fail to play properly.
* It has geared tuning heads, which I find easier to use than the basic non-geared ones.
* The colour and general appearance of the ukulele are very nice -- it's much less garish than those painted Mahalo ones
* It came with a good case
* It has fretboard markers (at frets 5, 7, and 10 -- different to the guitar, but NOT a mistake). These are simply paper stickers, rather than proper inlayed markers, but will still provide assistance to beginners. It doesn't look like all the Mahalo ukes have these.

BAD
* The strings look and feel quite cheap, but generally stay in tune. As already mentioned, better quality replacements are not expensive.
* The build quality of my uke feels OK, but the screw on the back of the G tuning head was rather loose. I found that the G string stayed in tune better after I'd tightened it
* The action (i.e. the height of the strings above the fretboard) is quite high. On my uke there is a 4mm gap between the strings and the top of fret 12. From what I've read, ideally the action would be a bit lower than this. I am considering lowering the action myself (instructions can be found online).

I got mine from Manns Music -- I ordered it on Sunday night, and it arrived on Tuesday morning.

By Asphodelia TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
I bought two of these Ukuleles as my partner and I had decided to learn together. The Stagg US10 arrived very well packaged and come with their own nylon case. As other reviewers pointed out, despite the low cost, these instruments look like 'real' instruments rather than novelty items. The sound seemed good enough from the start, although I had purchased some replacement strings Aquila Nylgut Soprano Ukulele strings (key of C) as another reviewer said that they would improve the sound of the Ukulele immensely (they do).

I would also recommend purchasing a chromatic tuner with your instrument - I bought this one Tanglewood TCT1 Chromatic "Traffic Light" Tuner which makes life a lot easier, as the Ukulele goes out of tune very quickly, especially when the strings are new.

I also purchased First Lessons Ukulele [With CD] which, again, a reviewer had recommended. I found it a bit basic though, and since then I purchased Ukulele For Dummies (For Dummies (Lifestyles Paperback)) which seems to be a lot more thorough, despite being written in a very light, funny conversational style (like most of the 'Dummies' series book).

I would definitely recommend this Ukulele for anyone starting out - I'm no expert and I'm sure that there are better models out there for people who can actually play, but if you are a beginner and just want to try it out, you cannot go wrong with the Stagg US10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 15 Mar 2011
Arrived in great condition much faster than I expected. I noticed that there were a few ukes around for about this price and went for this one since I didn't feel the need for extras such as picks and chord sheets. (also I think it looks prettier)
The strings stay in tune nicely (after the first few hours) and I love playing it. Definitely worth the money. A great starter uke.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice little instrument for the money 25 Dec 2011
Length: 1:27 Mins
I got my Stagg Uke for my birthday but I had been looking at it anyway. It does drift out of tune when you first get it and i would suggest getting an electronic tuner if you can. I got this one and it was very good: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Cherub-Ukulele-Mate-Tuner/dp/B000TSIUFA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1324853166&sr=8-1
My Computer was making a horrible whirring song while recording and I made a worse one singing.
