Having bought a ukelele for my six year old granddaughter I wanted one for myself so that we could learn together. This is a lovely quality instrument in attractive mango wood. The strings keep in tune much longer than expected for a new instrument. It is excellent value for money. I expected it to have a case but can understand that the the price charged for this quality insrument would not allow for a case.
This is a great instrument, especially for anyone just starting out who wants to play something better quality than a £20 Mahalo. As I began playing at University having a small soprano uke has meant I can always bring it home with me on the train with no problems. I did buy an Ashton case seperately so I can carry it on my back, but I would have no problems recommending this to anyone! It has encouraged 3 other of my friends toick one up too!
For an Internet bought ukulele I was very pleased with this one. It gives a nice clear sound and is v light to tote about town. Very enjoyable to play. I replaced the strings and this ukulele very seldom requires tuning. The only mild disappointment I felt was that the appearance is pasted on to the wood; but it makes sense for the price paid.
