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

My Stagg Soprano Uke was a Christmas present from my wife (not an Amazon purchase). I have to say it is the best present I have had in years!

One word of caution, however, Ukulele playing can become extremely addictive! Since Christmas I have purchased both a Concert Uke and a Tenor Uke, and from being a complete Ukulele Virgin just 5 months ago I am now playing concerts with my local Ukulele group! My next target is a Banjolele! I think my wife is regretting giving this present!

But back to the review! Most of what I would have said has already been said by others, so I will just qualify and expand on some of these comments and, as this is an "entry level" Uke, try to give a few tips and pointers as follows -

Cheap Ukuleles almost always come with cheap strings. A modest investment in better quality strings can transform the sound of your Ukulele. The Stagg strings are not the greatest and you will find that a modest outlay on better quality strings will transform the sound quality.

Aquila strings are very good at around £7.00 a set, but personally I like Worth BM Brown, they are around £14.00 a set, but are double length. One set is enough to restring both my Soprano and Concert Ukes.

One warning though - the player doesn't hear the true sound, as most of the sound projects forwards through the sound hole - as you are positioned behind the Ukulele the sound projects out in front, so most of the sound you hear is what is reflected back to you. This is a particularly important consideration if you are thinking of buying a new Ukulele. To get a true impression of what it really sounds like you need to listen to someone else playing it - or make a recording of yourself!

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.

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.

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.
