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.
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...
I bought five of these as gifts. All were fine, mellow sound, easy action.
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.
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!
