most fun you can have for the price
Marcas, 14.12.2014
I bought this one night after coming home from the pub, and it is the best drunken decision I have ever made.

As for build quality, I have two over-zealous young cousins who constantly give it a thorough quality check, and it has so far not shown up a single scratch. the black finish is perfectly painted, and all the frets and are nicely cut.

I am not much of a ukulele enthusiast, but it sounds lovely to my ears, what's an added bonus is how easy it is to pick up and play.

I have deducted a star because it's only flaw is that it doesn't hold tune, requiring to be tuned almost every time its played. but other than that? nothing. absolutely brilliant.

value for money, good enough sound
michailgr, 09.12.2020
When you just need to have a ukulele, it's the best option. I used it not only for learning and playing, but also for recording purposes, for which it did the job perfectly.
Cons : It doesn't have a deep or resounding sound, as expected, and sometimes it may have tuning issues( it may be well tuned when you play open strings but when you play closed ones it seems not tuned), which could normally be resolved by putting new strings.
Overall, a value for money option for new players or musicians wanting to have a uke in their arsenal.

Birthday present for my girldfriend
xTaicho, 20.10.2018
My girlfriend always talked about how much she likes ukulele, so i figured I'm going to give her this rather inexpensive one for her birthday. I was really sceptical when I ordered it, because the price was just too good to be true for an instrument.

It turned out, it's really just harley benton back at it. Sure, it's not really comparable to the some of the big names out there but seriously for that price... there's nothing even in the 50¤ range from other brands that I like as much which is really weird.

Pros:
- rich tone
- nice playability
- that unbeatable pricing

Cons:
- although very good playability, the frets are kinda sharp on the edges
- the tuners are cheap
- some small impurities in the finish

All in all, this was just meant to get her into playing an instrument, but I'm really impressed by the price to quality ratio on this thing. It's worth every buck, and the next ukulele I'm gonna buy her will be a harley benton as well.

Fun little ukulele
22.03.2017
Fun little instrument with a price you can't beat. For this price ukulele is solidly build and it sounds decent. I particularly like the vintage tuners that look so cool even though it doesn't stay in tune.

I bought it together with a black acoustic so my 2 year old son gets the same guitar as daddy :-) but I can't seem to put it down for some reason. The is something nice about playing an ukulele.

Use: practice, fun

Pros: price, looks cool

Cons: tuners - doesn't stay in tune
