Beautiful Ukulele
25.10.2016
This Ukulele was a bought as a birthday gift for my daughter who has longed for a Ukulele for some time now. She had only stipulated that it should either be aqua green in colour or simply made of wood. The amount of choice on the Thomann site is huge and when I found one in aqua green, I knew I had come to the right place. The website has plenty of clear photos of the product and a good description. There are also helpful reviews. I was happy with the product but wanted to check out the wooden ones too. This was more difficult because, again, there was a vast amount of choice. Once I saw the picture of the Ortega RU5mm Ukulele, I knew this was the one for my daughter. It arrived on time and was packaged well. I was able to track the parcel too.
The Ortega RU5mm is truly beautiful. It has a quality feel, the wood is silky to touch. The edging detail around the outside is a lovely decorative touch and is crafted perfectly. The butterfly design that is etched into the wood on the face side is delicately done and adds beauty to this item. The sound of this Soprano Ukulele is so cheerful and totally as expected. The sound is crisp, it is easy to tune and light to hold. There is nothing about this product that disappoints. You simply can't stop holding it, playing it and just looking at it - it's beautiful.

Great Ukelele - Perfect present for interesting young kids in music
Blue Wolf, 20.04.2017
We bought this one and one of the other cheaper harley benton ones. I have played ukes before and this one has a beautiful tone, easy to play. Bought for my 11 year old sister (who plays piano quite well) as she has trouble playing guitar her hands being still small, and it worked out great!

She absolutely loves it and has got the hang of it almost instantly as did my older non-music literate sister. It is that easy to play, and and they are both taking a lot of interest!

I would get it as a first ukelele again if i need to. What's more it's got a beautiful finish and servicing was excellent.

The only thing I would find useful that was 'missing' is an in-built pick-up system - but it's uke after all.

Thanks Thomann good job Ortega :)

Für den Preis fabelhaft
Benjamin Schulte, 26.02.2020
Dies ist meine dritte Ukulele. Neben den typischen 20 Euro Harley Benton spiele ich seit Jahren eine (inzwischen nicht mehr erhältliche) Lanikai Konzertukulele, die etwa doppelt so teuer war. Ein bisschen Vergleich habe ich also, und daher ordne ich die Ortega zu den anderen im Vergleich ein.

Wirklich fabelhaft, vor allem angesichts des Preises, ist die äußere Optik der Ortega. Das Tatoo mag Geschmackssache ein, doch die Ortega sieht nach echtem Holz aus und fühlt sich auch so an. Außerdem sehe ich den vorhandenen Befestigungspunkt für Gurte auch als Plus der Ortega. Nur daher bin ich auf die Idee gekommen, auch mal mit Gurt zu spielen, und man tut sich doch deutlich einfacher. In Folge habe ich auch meiner Lanikai einen Knopf aufgeschraubt. Ebenfalls sehr einfach zum Spielen ist die Saitenlage. Die Seiten lassen sich sehr leicht greifen, für Anfänger ohne Hornhaut ist dies ein Vorteil. Allerdings neigt die Ortega wahrscheinlich auch deshalb sehr schnell zum Schnarren. Von dem Abgesehen ist der Klang sehr gut, sie hängt die billigen Harley Bentons meilenweit ab und kann sich mit der Lanikai auch in der Lautstärke messen, obwohl diese einen Konzertkorpus hat.

Etwas schwierig jedoch ist das sehr kleine Griffbrett der Ortega. Die Harley Benton Sopranukulelen haben ein breiteres Griffbrett, mit dem sich die Akkorde leichter treffen lassen - meine Konzertukulele ist natürlich noch einmal viel einfacher. Man muss sich hier also ein bisschen mehr anstrengen, um nicht die Nachbarsaiten versehentlich zu dämpfen.

Insgesamt ein tolles Einsteiger- oder Zweitinstrument für den Preis.

Satisfait
BashangLH, 23.10.2020
Il sonne vraiment très bien, un son chaud et agréable, il porte agréablement bien. Il est léger comme une plume et fait le taf. Il reste accordé longtemps sans avoir fait des réglage dessus. Je recommande en tout cas en premier ukulele qui sonne et utilisable autant en live qu'en studio sans se ruiner.
