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

I have 20yrs + experience of playing stringed instruments but had never even touched a uke before, but always having been interested in learning to play, a month ago I took the plunge. Not wanting to sink my money into something that could be a passing fad, I bought cheaply and got one of these to mess around with.

The old adage of 'you get what you pay for' best sums up this instrument. For a beginner it's ok. The feel of the instrument is ok I suppose without being in any way impressive. The bag it comes with is basically a uke shaped carrier bag made from plastic with a crude zip at the base that sticks in my example.

The strings are pretty dire but I stayed with them for a week - again this was a first foray into uke territory so I wasn't rushing to buy extra kit. As with any stringed instrument you can expect to need frequent re-tuning of strings in the first few days. After a week of playing every day I was getting frustrated - the stock strings needed re-tuning after every 5 minutes of playing - never mind when it had been stored in the bag overnight - and no I wasn't being overly aggressive on the strumming - I know stringed instruments remember.

So I splashed out on some decent, reputable branded strings. I'm happy to say re-stringing this uke was a straight-forward easy process without any drama.

However, unfortunately, after three further weeks of playing the re-tuning problem remains. Give it 5 minutes of reasonably easy going strumming and you'll be re-tuning every string.

This leads me to suspect there is a deeper problem than string quality - clearly the pegs, despite being mechanical, are incapable of maintaining tension.

So there you have it. This is fine for a complete novice who only plays for a few minutes at a time, but if you plan to spend more than 5 minutes putting in decent practice then spend a bit more and get better quality.

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.

Not going to repeat what other reviewers have said, except to say that I've been playing Uke for a few months now & this is a very good instrument. It's tons better than the majority of the other budget ukes out there.

Like most others, I also changed the strings but for a £6 upgrade it's well worth it. Couldn't see the point of bedding-in strings which were never going to be great. Now that the Aquilas have settled, I enjoy playing this all the time.

BTW, I'm the one who supplied the pics of the "cut-up" instrument. It's not bc I'm potty, just that I was making a mini, travel version & the fingerboard & gears on this instrument are better & cheaper than those available as separate items. While I was sawing it up, I thought I'd snap the pics as I figured it'd be interesting to show how it's constructed - something most folk wouldn't ever see...

Definitely recommended!

Colour Name: Dark Natural Verified Purchase
The ukelele arrived in 3 days, much faster that I thought and indicative of good service. The instrument, itself, is so small, but the tone, when tuned is excellent. I bought an electronic tuner for just under a tenner and this is invaluable as the uke needs tuning from the start and every ten minutes thereafter. I understand some better strings give better sound and better in-tune duration, so I ordered a set of nylgut strings. This all might sound a bit inconvenient, but being new to a musical instrument it adds to the experience in my opinion. With a book and Youtube videos, plus some help from my musical son, I was up and playing something within hours having never played anything before. It doesn't make me feel like a rock god, but, honestly, it's a pleasure to strum away, learn something new and get a pleasant sound from an instrument that doesn't really cost a lot: I'm hooked and this is a good ukelele to start on at any age. 5 stars.
