I was fortunate to try this Baritone Ukulele at your Rockville branch recently.I am a solo uke(and guitar ) player,so I am very particular about instruments particularly ukes which are often churned out with the probable assumption that 'the kid will never get to play it anyway....' Well,not THIS instrument.The intonation was perfect,the sound much louder and sweeter than I expected and playability was excellent.I usually play on a tenor uke,so this was a slight struggle because of the scale length,but that was not the uke's fault. At the price it is a bargain,but at recommended price it is hard to beat

This is not a bad little baritone. It sounds pretty, certainly not overwhelming, and is physically beautiful. However, it has some problems. The worst was a persistent buzzing on the B string at the lower frets that I did not hear in the noisy Guitar Center store but was impossible to ignore once I got it home. I had to take this uke to a good luthier to fix – at first he thought it was a lost cause, but he did succeed in losing the buzz and now I do enjoy playing it. But that should not happen with an instrument that is set up properly, and these are not. So buyer beware. Otherwise this uke has a sweet sound and is quite pleasant, but as to sound volume I differ from the other reviews here. The sound is not loud, especially in comparison to other baritones, and especially considering it is supposed to have a solid spruce top. There is no way from the sound that you would know the top is solid spruce. I have a $100 Kala mahogany laminate that has a much bigger sound than this. Still, this Mitchell is a good basic instrument with a sweet guitar-like sound, and since the buzzing disappeared I've spent many enjoyable hours with it. I would use it more for practice than performance. Fun to play, but for the money there are definitely better options out there. There is probably a reason why one generally doesn't hear Mitchell mentioned as one of the top ukulele brands.

      Comments about Mitchell MUB70S Baritone Ukulele:

      This uke has very good tone quality. To me, it sounds more like a guitar than a uke.(what I wanted.) If you're looking for that classic ukulele sound, you may want a Tenor or smaller. If you're looking for something smaller than a guitar that's easier to play(or just a good baritone uke), then this is the one.

          I use this all the time. Changed string set up to tenor. No need to change fingering. Also changed strings to some guitar strings. Sounds WAY BETTER than when bought. I use 2 guitar strings and 2 baritone strings combined. GREAT BARITONE!!!! SOUNDS LIKE A GUITAR WITH 4 STRINGS!!!

            I was amazed of the loudness and resonance of this ukulele. The sound is bigger for the actual size. NOW it sounds much better since I changed the strings after careful string selections. It sounds like a GUITAR WITH 4 strings!!!

            Happy to have found this instrument.

            Knew the Mitchell name from a mandolin I purchased a year ago. Love the mando and am not disappointed with this addition either. Smooth playing neck and a great sound. If this little baby can take half the abuse of it's mando brother, it will be a permanent addition to the road gear.

            Love this ukulele! It has great sound quality and lots of volume. The solid spruce top makes a big difference when compared to laminates. The Grover tuners hold the notes well. It is very attractive, and the abalone makes it glimmer. In all, an outstanding product.

            Excellent Tone

            By Jessie Oldham

            from Pennsylvania

            Comments about Mitchell MUB70S Baritone Ukulele:

            I began a couple of years ago with a little better than entry level baritone uke. Due to arthritis, playing the guitar had become too difficult. I remembered that Joni Mitchell had begun on baritone uke because it sounded similar to a folk guitar. The first uke sounded okay but definitely had a bit of the Hawaiian sound. I decided to upgrade hoping for a better tone and volume, but I wondered if I'd truly notice the difference. This Mitchell baritone uke is awesome. Great volume, excellent tone. The sound difference from my previous Kala uke is night and day. Don't let the affordability dissuade you. Mitchell has made a great instrument. Solidly built, resonance great, pretty.

            Great Baritone Uke! Used in Music Therapy and Performance

            By Bonita Power

            from Chandler, AZ

            Comments about Mitchell MUB70S Baritone Ukulele:

            I've been using this uke for over a year now and have been extremely happy with it's quality (a little surprised since a Mitchell). It has nice tone, good projection, holds keys, very sturdy, nice finish, easier on the fingers and wrist, and has been a great asset working with clients in Music Therapy sessions. It has the same chord position as a guitar, but not as bulky, especially for folks that are bed-ridden. It also worked great for travel and taking to friends playing and singing Christmas songs this year. It also projected over an entire group of carolers, approx. 25. I have strap clips on it, and works great. I have a Mahalo also, but always prefer to play this one. Pleasantly surprised with this uke!!!
