Sounds like a Uke many times the price
03.06.2015
I bought this for my daughter who was heading off to university and threatening to take my ukulele with her.

I should have let her take mine and kept this for myself as it sounds great - bright and resonant - and plays great too.

Excellent value for money
nordman, 19.11.2013
Ortega RU11 is a beautiful instrument with excellent tone and build quality. It's easy to play and the mahogany body produces a warm mellow sound that I like very much. Many of the ukuleles in this price class are made of laminate but this one is really solid wood all over. The included gig bag is also very good and sturdy, although I find the pale blue colour a bit strange (but that is the only con I have found).

This is a concert size ukulele, about 2 inches longer than normal (soprano) ukulele. In my opinion concert ukulele is the perfect all-around size. It is big enough to be comfortable but still quite compact. It has a deeper tone and more volume than soprano ukuleles but still has the typical bright ukulele sound.

And one more positive thing: this ukulele comes with Aquila nylgut strings which are simply the best. Highly recommended!

Die RU11 Ortega erfüllt meine Erwartungen vollends
Heidrun, 29.10.2009
Die RU11 ist richtig klasse! Sie ist sauber verarbeitet, bundrein und wirklich volltönend. Wie man mit einem Gewicht von nur 460g Stabilität, Klang und Bedienung so ideal kombinieren kann ist m.M. nach einzigartig.

Selbst die serienmäßig aufgezogenen Saiten überzeugen im Gesamtkonzept des Instruments. Zu dem Konzept gehört augenscheinlich auch die Massiv-Holz-Philosophie, die es einem leicht macht, das Instrument auch von seiner Optik betrachtet, lieben zu lernen, ganz nach dem Motto: Wo Mahagoni zu sehen ist, verbirgt sich auch definitiv Mahagoni und kein Laminat.

Das Case ist absolut ausreichend und bietet ausreichend Schutz auch wenn es einmal unsanft in den Kofferraum wandern muß. Da könnte sich so manch anderer Hersteller etwas großzügiger zeigen. Also: Preisleistungsverhältnis Note 1.

Un instrumento muy completo
elhombredelasnieves, 03.07.2012
Este ukelele tamaño concierto tiene un sonido muy dulce y redondo (las cuerdas aquila que lleva supongo que ayudan mucho) y el ajuste es perfecto, el sonido está afinado en todos los trastes hasta la caja (más allá prácticamente no he tocado). Estas son las características que más me sorprendieron cuando lo probé por primera vez, pero además hay que añadir que los acabados son buenos, la decoración es muy bonita con acabados nacarados, los clavijeros funcionan muy finos. Incluye la funda, lo que juntando todo en mi opinión es una relación calidad - precio muy buena. Lo único que echo en falta es que la cejuela y el puente son de plástico, supongo que el hueso daría un resultado muy bueno.
El volumen del instrumento es sorprendente para lo pequeño que es (¿el hueso daría más volumen?).
Totalmente recomendable, aunque el ukelele es un instrumento con nombre propio, es la miniguitarra perfecta para ir al campo, tener en el sofá de casa... yo soy maestro y lo uso constantemente para ir al cole (sirve para acompañar y no abulta).
