    Hi Mel, if you click the links all the information including of course prices and cheaper/more expensive alternatives are right there. We did not want to clutter up the blogposts with prices and specs. 🙂 Suffice to say Uke’s are certainly among the most affordable instruments ever made! Have fun!
