Nice Irish Bouzouki for the price
JohnLuke, 12.07.2017
The instrument has a elegant look.
As mentioned in another review the original chords are almost not playable and yes, the low strings are octaved and not unison like Irish Bouzoukis should be.
Thank to the mentioned review I ordered also a set of D'addario strings (EJ81) and I restrung the instrument almost immediatly.
Well the sound is really better and enjoyable. Begun playing Monaghan Jig and sounds quite nice.

The piezo in it is good and can be used while performing (take extra care equalizing it and the result will be good).

Now, cosidering the price, this Romanian-made bouz is very good and a bargain to start with.
One customization to do: replace the keys. Considering the price they are cheap (that's expected) so some of them become too stiff and hard to turn while others remain loose. Currently they're doing the job. But l'm planning to replace them.
Once done, well, it will be an average good instrument.
Only the time will answer on wood quality but it appears well made.
The black finish is good to see and performing on stage is going to have success.
Enjoy!

A Jolly Reasonable 'Zouk
Simon4003, 23.09.2014
This is a Romanian-made instrument perfect for a beginner or someone who is looking to experiment like me. As with all Thomann products it is remarkably reasonable and a good instrument. I use it to 'beef out' acoustic guitar chords which works well in standard CFAD tuning. Original strings were ropey but replaced with some D'Addarios and the sound is beautiful and unexpected. Best price-quality ratio on the market

A very good instrument for the price
20.05.2016
Given its cost, I don't want to be too picky. It sounds good and is very fun to play. It also has a decent built in pickup.

Now for the niggles:
It is labelled an Irish Bouzouki, but the two low sounding strings are octaved (like Greek Bouzoukis) instead of unison (like Irish Bouzoukis). As such I had to file the groove for one of the G strings as it was too narrow for the proper string.
The tuning pegs are adequate, but not very good.
