Stagg US10 Traditional Soprano Ukulele
Stagg US10 Traditional Soprano Ukulele
Price: £20.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and sore fingers!, 5 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being an absolute beginner I can't comment on build quality, all I can say is that it's still intact after 3 weeks of 'practice'. Price is competitive. Changed the strings as recommended by all the experts to Aquila, which was an easy job following instructions from a You Tube video. Also bought the Eno ET 33U tuner, great item.
Will keep practicing!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for this Dummie, 5 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ukulele For Dummies (Paperback)
Bought this as I am in fact a 'Dummie'. It has some good stuff in it but I found it a bit overpowering and got to the tricky bits too quickly for me. Gone back to You Tube where there are some really good videos to learn from.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really useful addition to the kitchen, 23 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really useful addition to the kitchen. The chips are really nice, we stop them half way through the cooking time and give them a shake up to separate the ones that tend to stick together. Salmon is really well cooked and I did a 10" Pizza the other night which was well cooked.
Glad we purchased one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Won't stay closed, 30 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Initial impressions were good. I like the way it replaces the original battery cover so it doesn't add bulk to the phone. The overall quality looks good also, however the front does not stay closed so it's not so great at prtoecting the phone. If you can live with this though it's a nice looking cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than deafness!!, 9 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a motorcycle rider and I have always worn earplugs of some description. I have tried many, including the ones that are moulded to your ear shape, but I have found that these Alpine suit me the best. I suppose earplugs are a personal thing but for me these offer the right amount of sound deadening and comfort. 99% of the time I don't know I have these in my ear when riding, there is the odd time though that they annoy me but this is purely down to 'operator error', that's me not putting them in properly.

Bradshaw's Handbook - A Facsimile of the Famous Guide (Old House)
Bradshaw's Handbook - A Facsimile of the Famous Guide (Old House)
by George Bradshaw
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £8.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking book, 8 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Probably like most people who watch Mr Portillo's journeys around the rail network I was intriegued by the Bradshaw's Guide that he keeps referring to so when I saw it for £6.00 it was a no brainer. OK it's a facsimile, and there are a few words missing here and ther, but so what it looks great on the coffee table! and makes for an interesting read. As a few reviewers have mentioned the text is a little on the small side, but if that's how it was originally then that's how it was originally!!! Some gems of interesting facts (or uninteresting depending upon your viewpoint) and it's interesting to see how things have changed in the ensuing years.
If you're thinking you might buy it, do so.
