Just plain spiffy!
RonanM, 03.08.2015
Looks good, sounds good plugged in as well as unplugged and even feels good to play. No complaints here at all... Well one extremely minor one. I wish it came with a cloth bag or something to carry it about a bit more securely than the dust cover it came in. That is the only gripe I have with this product. That said, I love this ukulele and have not stopped playing it since it arrived on my doorstep!

I've gigged with it as well and it's been a relief to sound techs as it's up and running with a guitar lead. I've even messed with effects pedals with it. It makes for some surprisingly cute rock songs when using distortion!

Quality for a good price
Sudhir, 07.02.2018
I am beginner but I play classical guitar since 30 years and I was positively surprised about the Ortega Ukuleke; it looks cute, it has an ok pick up, a inbuilt tuner and it is easy to tune stays tuned. And the sound, it has a nice sustain and a silky sound if you play it gentle and is already tight like a shaker or percussion when you play it more staccato.

LO ADORO!
16.12.2016
Ho deciso di acquistare questo ukulele per avvicinarmi allo studio dello strumento; volevo scegliere un prodotto di "medio livello" come rapporto qualità-prezzo.
Quando è arrivato me ne sono letteralmente innamorata.
Sebbene le immagini rispecchino la realtà, averlo tra le mani è sicuramente più appagante.
Esteticamente è bellissimo, color legno naturale con quella piccola incisione laser, anche il perimetro è perfettamente rifinito con una decorazione lucida.
Questo è la versione Concert, adatto sicuramente anche a musicisti non principianti, sia per l'impatto estetico perfettamente curato, sia per il suono, sia per il fatto che è amplificabile e quindi adattabile a più situazioni live.
Dotato inoltre di accordatore incorporato perfettamente funzionante.
Unica nota "negativa" se proprio devo trovargliela è il fatto che il legno con cui è stato fabbricato sembra non trattato o comunque proprio lievemente quindi risulta un po' delicato e facilmente graffiabile, basta comunque prestarci attenzione e trattarlo bene!
Proprio per questo motivo sono stata contenta di aver acquistato anche la sua custodia.
Non vedo l'ora di scoprirne tutte le sue potenzialità!

Die muss es sein!
Peter289, 10.03.2015
Ich habe sie unter dreien auserwählt, obwohl die Saitenlage etwas hoch ist (Barré im 1. Bund strengt an, aber mit einer Feile kann man das behutsam ändern), obwohl sie eine Bridge für Schlaufen wie bei Konzertgitarren hat, obwohl sie nicht ganz bundrein ist, obwohl die Elektronik 2 fummelige Knopfzellen braucht, die einem beim Wechseln nur dann nicht auf den Boden fallen, wenn man sie mit der Kopfplatte nach unten hält, obwohl sie nur einen Tone-Regler hat statt getrennten Bässen und Höhen. Weiterhin musste ich 2 kleine Mängel beheben: Bei einer Mechanik vibrierte eine Unterlegscheibe, weil die Mutter nicht richtig angezogen war. Damit die Tone- und Volume-Reglerknöpfe, die nicht fest auf der Achse sitzen, nicht schnarren, habe ich in den Spalt um diese Knöpfe mit einem zusätzlich angespitzten Zahnstocher ein Stück Faden gestopft.

Diese Ukulele ist ein Handschmeichler. Makelloses, glattes Holz mit einer hauchdünnen Lackschicht, überall umsäumt von einem wunderschönen Tortoise-Binding. Die Enden der Bundstäbchen spürt man nicht. Alles weich und glatt. Das prägte meine Entscheidung. Der Hals ist breit, man kann bequem und sauber greifen. Ganz zu schweigen von dem vollen, warmen Naturklang unplugged sowie von den Eigenschaften am Verstärker. Mit dem Tone-Regler in der Mitte habe ich meinen Wunschklang. Nach links gerdreht, werden die Höhen gedämpft, nach rechts wird es schriller. Die Regler sitzen weit vorn, gut erreichbar während dem Spielen. Das Stimmgerät hat die gleiche Qualität wie mein externes. Zu erwähnen wäre noch, dass die 1. und 4. Saite geringfügig leiser vom Pickup übertragen werden, aber bei anderen Ukulelen war die Abweichung noch drastischer.
Bei dem Klang ist mir egal, dass die Decke nur laminiert ist.
Für den Preis ein wahres Schnäppchen, das man nicht mehr aus der Hand geben will.
