Good uke for beginner.. I would give 5 stars except for finish.. some lacquer splashed over nut and fret board. Hard to keep in tune at first but after a few days strings stretched out and kept tune fairly well.. sounds decent. The accompanying DVD and text are excellent. I was able to play cords first day and played songs in a few of days of practice... Bang for buck is really good I would say.

So I've been messing around with the uke for a few days and really like it. Yes, it is on the lower end as far as quality goes, but I like it as a learner's instrument. Be forewarned that ukuleles in general don't hold their tune very well so it will go out of tune pretty often, at least until the strings have really been played on, stretched, and set. This particular uke is a little sharp. The strings tune right but when played it tends to be sharp just a bit. Otherwise, I really like it.

good for uku beginner

By Soy Phommachanh

from Gainesville, VA

Comments about Alfred Teach Yourself to Play Ukulele Complete Starter Pack:

it is Nice uku package and it has everything for the beginner. It has a good finish and it also sounds good. I just got it less than a week, and still getting used to it. However, I noticed that it is kind of out of tune quite often, it may be because of the nylon string and relatively new. I just have to tune it often. Once it is tuned, it sounds good. I would recommend it if you are a beginner like me.

    good beginner Ukulele , poor finish, but works well.

    By Dan

    from Pulaski wi

    Comments about Alfred Teach Yourself to Play Ukulele Complete Starter Pack:

    this is a very basic ukulele, but functions well. its nice to have a gig bag (thin nylon and cheep), book, and CDs in one package. my daughter took to it quickly and is quite pleased. the finish is poor, arriving with scratches and overall poor finish. no shinny lacquer. but no worries if she bounces it around taking it to friends houses. the sound projection is surprisingly good. it even comes with an extra set of strings. overall worth the money and satisfied.

    Comments about Alfred Teach Yourself to Play Ukulele Complete Starter Pack:

    It is great for a beginning learner, but goes out of tune quickly. The dvd instructional video is good and the book has useful information. But it is a cheaply made product and we will have to buy her a better quality product if she wants to continue playing it.

                      I bought this as a gift. Yes, it has to be tuned before playing but seems to stay in tune while practicing. For what it is, a beginner ukulele, it does the job very well. I would buy it again.
