Comments about Mahalo U-350 Deluxe Soprano Ukulele with Case:
Purchased this ukulele for my 13 year old daughter. She had recently been picking up and playing a cheap ($35) concert sized uke that we had been given as kind of a gag-gift, that had been sitting on a shelf in the house (my wife and I play numerous stringed instruments), and we thought we'd get her something a little better to play. I looked for a solid topped instrument and this was the only solid topped instrument I could find in this price range. I was a little skeptical but reread the specs "solid mahogany top" and went for it. Unlike any other instrument I have ever purchased, when it arrived I didn't pre-play it, tune it up, and check or adjust the setup. I didn't even open the plastic wrap. When the time came, I just gave her the box. Upon opening up the package, she really liked the case "it has turtle zipper pulls!". And upon seeing the uke, she said "the tuners are dolphins!" (Not anything I would or ever have looked for, but it works for her!) She immediately got up and returned with a tuner and proceeded to tune the uke up. As soon as she began tuning I noticed the difference in tone between this instrument and the cheap uke. This uke projects so much more clearly and louder. And, once she got it tuned up and began to play it, we ALL noticed that the intonation was spot-on too, even up the neck (we'd all been stuck listening to that other uke - OUCH!) She played the uke for about 45 mins during that sitting and during that time stopped to tune it back up twice more. After the last time, it settled out nicely for the rest of the session. The uke has a couple of nice unexpected finishing touches. The mahogany top is bound with Koa, and the mahogany neck/headstock has a nicely figured Koa veneer. I was hoping to have purchased an "Instrument" and not a toy, and I am fully satisfied with my purchase.
