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!

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.

          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!

          Decent Uke for inexpensive price

          By 

          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 

          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...
