I don't know how Thomann can make such an incredible ukulele for the price.
All the woods are solid, no veneer here! The grain of the spruce is straight, not the tightest grain, but for this price, I can't complain. It is a very pretty uke - the rosette is quite contemporary and well designed. The workmanship is spot on, no glue blobs in the interior. All the joints seem well made.
The neck is very smooth under the fingers and the finish is a beautiful satin.
What sets this ukulele apart from other ukuleles of this price-range and cheaper is its ability to tune easily and to stay in tune. The tuners are the usual closed gear you'd find on a guitar, not friction, and are very smooth.
The sound is very loud and surprisingly balanced. It is not harsh and shrill as is the case with most ukuleles at this price point, it is actually quite warm and full. I advise all my students to buy it.
I would recommend this instrument to anybody taking up the ukulele for the first time or to a seasoned pro who needs a decent sounding uke to play in a band setup. It also sounds fantastic amplified through a mic.
