This is not for a professional player by any means. But if you'r looking for a fun easy, and inexpensive instrument to play, this is you'r ticket. I does need a little work before it sounds good, but it worked well for me. It has a little trouble staying in tune, but I've not had much experience with ukuleles so I don't know how well they stay in tune normally. And You will need to buy a good set of new strings to make it sound good. i would recommend martins if you want good quality. That's it hope you enjoy it!

It needed new strings from the start. The thing that that kinnects the strings to the ukulele broke because the bottom string wouldn't go into tune unlunlkess I made it really tight and well... Apparently it didn't work that way either. I'm afraid my frustrating experience was due to my inexperience with stringed instruments (I play piano, recorder and a few percussion instruments) and bad strings. Now I have to go get a new one (since it happened within 45 days i dont have to pay). New ukulele and newly bruised hand. Don't let my experience stop you from getting it. Just a warning.

      Comments about Diamond Head DU-150 Soprano Ukulele:

      The Diamond Head DU-150 is an excellent value. The only caution I would offer is that the bridge style on mine turned out to be different from that shown in the online photo-- a slotted bridge is shown (where you'd simply tie a quick knot in the end of the string and slip it into the slot), but the actual uke has a "tie-on" bridge, much like you'd see on a nylon-string classical guitar. I don't mind the differential, but MF should consider updating those online photos, as some folks may not like the tie-on classical-style bridge. Beyond that, this uke is very pretty to look at, plays in tune with itself, has a very nice tone (actually compares favorably with my Martin S-1 soprano in that department, believe it or not), is put together with care, has a nice "heft" to it (doesn't feel flimsy), and feels really nice and balanced in your hands. I would suggest putting on new strings (perhaps Martin M-600's, tuned up to aDF#B, which gives the uke a nice punchy voice). I also plan to install new tuning machines, although the ones that come with it are sufficient. Once that is done, I think I'll have a uke that will serve me well for years to come, and for the price, I am very satisfied with this purchase!

          A good buy for your first ukulele

          Comments about Diamond Head DU-150 Soprano Ukulele:

          This was a surprise gift from my wife that she had ordered along with another item that I knew about. The uke has a good neck, fingerboard, and sturdy little body. It took a few days for the strings to seat and stay in tune but after that there were no other problems.
          This is not a toy, but a real musical instrument that I look forward to learning how to play

            Comments about Diamond Head DU-150 Soprano Ukulele:

            I bought this uke because I wanted a fair learners uke for my spouse. The uke is made in China so the price was right. It came with a plastic uke bag. Initially you will need to tune it frequently so get a tuner. You will need it as tuning is needed since the strings are stretching.

                  This is my first ukulele and at first it would constantly go out of tune and even when it was it didn't sound so great, but once you change it to some good quality strings the change is amazing I haven't stopped playing it since I got it but I will probably upgrade to a higher quality one if my skills improve.
