I review ukuleles and play one in a band too , and have now probably played hundreds of individual instruments over the last few years. I started to note that uke players were buying these to check them out as they DO seem to be a bit of a bargain.
Please please though - avoid! The tuners on mine were on the verge of being broken on arrival as the plastic is so soft. I had to change them as the pegs turned on the spindles without anything happening after a day.
The stock strings are the worst I have ever played on a beginner instrument, and that is saying something!
I recently took mine on a fortnight holiday as a uke I didn't care if it got damaged in transit. In two weeks play, the strings are wearing the frets away, meaning that in a short time frame the instrument will become a useless ornament. The bridge is also coming away from the top.
There are better reliable beginners ukes out there for similar money if your budget is tight, such as the Makala Dolphin and the Octopus. This is NOT a reliable uke - it is a joke instrument
Delivery was fine but the build quality is poor with cheap strings and it could not be tuned. The bridge is of a very cheap plastic and the tuners do not work. In the thirty pound range there are many better ukuleles out there for a child. This was bought as a present and was returned. No problem returning which was easy I just repackaged and dropped it off at a local pick up point, a few days later a refund was given. Amazon service was excellent as usual and the one star only reflects the quality of the product,
