A lot of people mentioned impossible to tune, it is possible to tune, as I bought this same model and did a inexpensive tweak to it using a small portion of a expired credit card folded in place in the bridge area.
First thing to check is the intonation, do this by playing the 12th fret harmonic and then with 12th fret pressed. If the pressed note is flat compared to harmonic, the bridge position needs to be further away from sound hole. Sounds awesome now for me, all positions on neck with one tuning.

I got this thing on sale for 30 bucks. Having played guitar for 15 years now, I thought I'd venture out in the world of other instruments. Without having to spend too much money, I wanted to check the ukulele out. It goes out of tune a lot at first, which would be difficult and disheartening to a beginner, but once everythings worked itself out, it sounds good!

Decent Uke for inexpensive price

By Anthony

from san diego, ca

Comments about Kohala Exclusive Soprano Ukulele:

While this is a uke you don't want to play Carnegie Hall with, for learning and little hands it's great. Yes one of the reviewers complained about tuning, but you have to tune to the key you are playing in. If you use a tuner, it is most likely calibrated to even temperament, so all the notes across the chromatic scale are equally out of tune. You have to the same notes across the strings to get a good sound and then sometimes you have to split the difference about notes being out of tune, to fit all the chords you are playing. And this uke is "inexpensive" so the calibration of the frets is not going to be what you'd get from a more expensive instrument, but given that it still plays well, and is fun to learn on. My students can attest to that. The timbre and resonance is dry and flat but it's sound is not annoying. Again, for starters this little uke is more than adequate.

Junk

By Artie Withers

from Port Jefferson Station

Comments about Kohala Exclusive Soprano Ukulele:

I bought it for my granddaughter and I am very disappointed. the instrument is impossible to tune, as it is false on every string combination. Tune to tuner, and it is out tune when you play chords. Tune string to string and it is out of tune when playing chords...Very disappointed. may bring it back to the store and try to trade it in for something better...Moral of the story, buy a good instrument...this is junk, plain and simple...

Next time I will spend more money

By stephen peiffer

from Moultrie, GA

Comments about Kohala Exclusive Soprano Ukulele:

I am not crazy about what I purchased, but for $30 I guess I was expecting too much. It is inexpensive and upon receiving it, I could definitely tell. It is alright for the time being, but I will probably spend at least $100 next time to get something much more substantial.

        Comments about Kohala Exclusive Soprano Ukulele:

        I got this as a birthday gift and was so excited to start playing. I have not experienced any instrument other than the piano so this was a good beginner uke to buy. I've tried so many things online and an electronic tuner and I can get this uke tuned! It will not tune the correct way and I don't know why. Help!

          Comments about Kohala Exclusive Soprano Ukulele:

          I've been playing this ukulele for about three years now, and it was the first one I've ever owned. It's a great ukulele for beginners and it definitely has a good sound. It does not sound cheap, regardless of the great price! There are of course small scratches and chips on mine, which is normal for having it a few years. It holds up well. If you have larger hands I would not recommend buying this size ukulele. I have better strings on mine now this is the only (slightly) negative thing about it: it could use better strings. The ones it comes with are not bad strings but if you want a nicer sound I would recommend buying better quality strings. Nice size. I think if you were planning on performing a lot, you should get a more expensive uke, but this Kohala soprano ukulele is great for having fun with and learning how to play!

          I'm new to instruments...never played anything in my life (except recorder in elementary school!). Bought this on a whim. Excellent, especially for the price. Quality is there. Definitely not a toy.

          I purchased 2 of these. One for a beginner, one for a guitar player. They both are pleased with the sound. As mentioned by others, you may have to retune for a few days, so don't give up at first. Excellent purchase for a beginner.
