Beautiful beginners' Uke!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mahalo Soprano Ukulele with Bag - Black (Electronics)
Just received this uke today, and am already suckinbg the ends of my fingers - I just can't put it down!!
At this price, I was expecting a cheap-looking 'toy-like' instrument, but I have been happily amazed!! It looks beautiful and plays well, with great tone and volume. Okay, the strings are cheap, and will be replaced this evening by Aquilas, but even with the original strings this instrument has a lovely warm tone.
For a beginner's instrument, I find it hard to believe that there could possibly be a better one out there - this little gem is a fantastic inexpensive 'starter' ukelele, very easy to play, and it won't break the bank. For anyone learning a new instrument or just looking to practise without spending a fortune, this is definitely the answer!
It came very well packaged from Normans - safe and sound, and extremely rapid delivery, even though I live in the 'deep east' of France!
Already (seriously, within five hours!) it has given me the urge to take up the uke on a more serious basis (I am a fromer pro violinist and pianist, looking to expand my instrumental repertoire), and my fingers will no doubt be bleeding by tomorrow morning!!
If you have any doubts at all, get rid of them!! This is an absolute MUST!!! If I could give it more stars than 5, I would!!!
