Harley Benton DC-UKE
05.09.2015
This was my first electric ukulele. Other than this, I have a mahalo soprano and a custom made banjolele. When I first opened the box, I was amazed at how beautiful this little uke is. The finish is much better than what you can see on the pictures and you can actually see some wood grain. I wasn't 10% pleased with the finish tough, as it had some scratches at the end of the neck. After playing it for a couple of days, I found it to be very confortable. There are no sharp fret ends, the neck is straight and it intonates perfectly till the 15th fret. After that, it's a little off, so I may try to adjust it. The factory strings are quite ok for an instrument this cheap. After they were broken in, the uke stays in tune quite well. I also love the neck. It's a quite chunky D-shaped neck. After plugging in and running it through my pedalboard, I found no additional noise. The piezo is quite harsh on the high end, so I use an EQ pedal to roll off the highs a bit. I have one complain about the controls. It's supposed to have 1 volume and 1 tone control. Mine seems to have 2 volume controls, since when I roll either one of them to zero, there is no volume. The tone would be very useful to tame the piezo. This is my only major complain. Overal, it's still an amazing ukulele for the price. It is NOT perfect nor comparable to mid to high end ukes, but holds its own against some 100?-200? solid body ukes on the market.

Tone Control Fix
23.02.2017
As others have commented, I found that the initial problem with the Uke was that both volume and tone controls acted as volume controls. Upon inspection I discovered that the wiring was incorrect. I don?t know if this is down to fault of the schematic that it was wired to or a fault when being manufactured. I rewired the potentiometers to be in a standard electric guitar configuration. This however did not initially fix the problem. After a bit of testing and changing of the capacitor to a different value I settled on 2nF as a good value to replace the stock, this resolved the issue. Anything within the range on about 1-10nF will work but I think the best thing to do is to experiment with values till you find the correct value for you.
In conclusion; check that the wiring is correct to a standard guitar schematic (widely available). If it isn?t then that?s a good place to start. If both still function as volume controls then look at changing the capacitor to a value better suited to ukulele frequencies..
Enjoy!
