Ortega Tenor Uke
George W., 15.03.2015
Nice looking bit of kit. My main 'downside' is that, once the uke is tuned with the 'onboard' tuner (and it plays satisfactorily), the strings are not 'in tune' when you use the 'finger-on-the-fret' tuning - quite badly 'out' in the case of the 2nd string.

In the recommended tenor uke tuning, D G B E, the strings are very slack causing the notes to sharpen when 'chorded'

However, when tuned to E A D G the uke plays just fine.

As I am just learning the uke this is adequate to start with but it REALLY should be priced much lower than it is!

Ceci n'est pas un jouet, mais bel et bien un instrument!
Cédric57700, 28.12.2018
J'utilise uniquement ce produit pour un usage à mon domicile.

Le son est très bon mais je ne peux pas vraiment faire la comparaison avec d'autre modèle concert.

L'instrument respire la qualité par rapport à certains autres modèles, il n'a pas l'apparence d'un jouet comme beaucoup de ukulélé.
L'ergonomie est très bonne et l'instrument tient parfaitement l'accordage.

Bref je recommande ce produit me satisfait pleinement ainsi que le service Thomann qui a été irréprochable.

Empfehlenswert, auch für größere Hände
Danji, 09.06.2020
Auf der Suche nach einer passenden Ukulele, die man ernsthaft live und im Studio einsetzen kann, habe ich mich eingehend informiert, viel gelesen und einige Instrumente in den Händen gehabt.

Ich habe seit langer Zeit eine Sopran-Uke und die war für mich immer ein Spielzeug, von der Bespielbarkeit wie vom Sound und der Klangfülle her. Schnell war klar, dass ein größeres Instrument für mich besser wäre. Concert-Größe ist kein allzu großer Unterschied zu Sopran.

Tenor ist deutlich größer, aber immer noch gestimmt wie Sopran. Auch für mich mit über 1,90 m ist diese Größe viel bequemer zu spielen, der Klang ist gleichzeitig voller und ich habe das Gefühl, ein ernsthaftes Instrument in den Händen zu haben und kein Spielzeug.

Von Ortega gibt es auch günstigere Modelle als die Lizard. Zum Vergleich habe ich die RU5CE-TE bestellt und beide miteinander verglichen. Bespielbarkeit, Sound und Pickup-Sound waren bei beiden gut, die Lizard machte den edleren Eindruck.

Schlussendlich hat mich dann die grandiose Optik der Lizard überzeugt, diese zu behalten. Holz und Finish sind wirklich toll und die vielen Geckos ein echter Hingucker.

Trotzdem ging die Lizard noch einmal zurück zu Thomann zur Reparatur. Wie bei vielen Instrumenten mit Piezo-Pickup (vor allem bei Akustikbässen) bestand auch hier das Problem, dass die Saiten unterschiedlich laut über den Pickup wiedergegeben werden. Hier war eine Saite quasi gar nicht zu hören. Ein paar Tage später war sie wieder bei mir und alles war bestens.

Das mitgelieferte Gigbag macht einen guten Eindruck.

Ich kann dieses Instrument für jeden empfehlen, der eine größere komfortable Ukulele sucht mit der Möglichkeit, sie an eine PA anzuschließen, um sie auch mal bei Auftritten live zu spielen.
