5.0 out of 5 stars Quality instrument and great fun, 25 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: B STOCK COSMETIC UKULELE CLEARWATER CONCERT UKE - CLEARANCE OFFER - LATEST MODEL
The Clearwater Concert Ukulele arrived after four days from RUMC and, as others have said, was really well packed. My first impressions were good although there was no label to say they were Aquila strings as I have seen on Ukuleles in various music shops. RUMC say they are Aquila type strings so I'm not sure what the make is, however, they tuned up easily and sound fine. I have read in some forums of strings taking months to start to stay in tune but after two weeks they need less and less adjustment. I normally play a Ramirez nylon string guitar with a solid cedar top and in a way I was concerned I might be expecting to much in terms of quality but I'm impressed with the great sound. This is my first ukulele and I'm having great fun just strumming away and learning a few more chords as I go. The ukulele is well made with no sharp frets and the distance between nut and last fret is equal on both sides. The intonation seems to be fine when testing at the 12 fret with open string, the method suggested in one of the e books. The machine heads seem to be of reasonable quality and are holding the strings in tension so far.
I would recommend the Clearwater Concert to someone new to the instrument, either adult or kids, to get them interested in playing a musical instrument and having fun. There are loads of sites that give tips and lessons making it easy to get started. If you have come from another instrument I would recommend the book' Starting Ukulele The Next Step' by Steven Sproat, as it's not to basic.
