This uke is well worth the price, especially if you're a beginner. The only downside is that it often goes out of tune, even after the stings have been on for a while, so I usually have to re-tune after one or two songs.

This is a nice place to start for the beginner. While your learning, playing and deciding if you want to be a uke player you won't have spent to much cash. I would recommend replacing the strings though. Have fun and join Ukulele Underground for lots of helpful tips! mahalo!

Great Starter Uke

By Lisa Jobe

from Fort Worth, TX

Comments about Lanikai Kohala Standard Ukulele:

For a beginner like myself, this is a great Uke. The price is right, especially if you don't know if the Uke is your thing or not. I love it! Like others have said, it is a good idea to invest in a pair of better strings AND be sure to give it a day or two of tuning. I had problems with the strings stretching at first, but now it holds a great tune. Buy it.

You get what you pay for.

By Ashton

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Lanikai Kohala Standard Ukulele:

I got this ukulele about a year ago and it was a decent beginner uke. It wouldn't hold a tune, after a song or two I would have to re tune it. It looks nice online, but it looks kind of cheesy/cheap once you see it. If you (like I did) know you will stick with it, spend a few more bucks and get a nicer one. I only had it for a couple of months before it got stepped on and broke, but it was fun while it lasted.

Terrible quality.

By Sam Brown

from Annapolis, Maryland

Comments about Lanikai Kohala Standard Ukulele:

Was very excited when I had read review and ordered. Opened it and it has a bunch of scratches already on it. It will not stay tuned and just about everything on it falls apart.

Great beginner uke!

By Cody

from VA

Comments about Lanikai Kohala Standard Ukulele:

First off, the shipping was excellent! Most items I buy from Guitar Center show up 3-4 days late but this showed up 2 days early with standard shipping! Out of the box, the nylon strings are stiff and need stretching. People that review this item state that there are tuning problems when it says in the manual that there will be until the strings break in. I spent a good half day tuning it but by the end of the day it was perfectly in tune and has stayed in tune since. There are some quality issues present but nothing significant or major to effect the tone or playability. All in all, if you are thinking about learning to play the ukelele then this is a great buy but this is not reccommended for avid or expert players.

You get what you paid for

By Aj-qxvzQ

from Washington

Comments about Lanikai Kohala Standard Ukulele:

This is not an instrument meant for an experienced ukulele player. It doesn't have the BEST sound and it doesn't stay in tune like an expensive ukulele would. But, this is a great first ukulele for anyone who wants to learn. With this, you can learn your cords and notes and get used to the feel of a ukulele. It is not the best product out there, but it is a great starter.

Almost Unplayable

By Cape Cod Struggler

from Cape Cod. MA

Comments about Lanikai Kohala Standard Ukulele:

I purchased the Kohala ukulele as a gift for a younger player to learn some basic chords and strumming patterns. When I finally saw the gift, the instrument as received from the factory was almost playable. It doesn't live up to the Lanikai nameHad the ukulele been sent to my home instead of the child's home, I would have returned it within the 45 day grace period. You get what you pay for! Buy a real Lanikai!

Music is universal

Comments about Lanikai Kohala Standard Ukulele:

I sent this Ukulele to my son, an Army private in Afghanistan. He tells me it made him popular amongst his other platoon members. He's been leading sing-alongs.
