First foray into folk
Jakey Sully, 28.04.2018
I bought this while training as an actor to use as a stage instrument for Shakespeare productions and the like. For this function it worked extremely well, although it took some time to figure out the tuning as compared to a guitar.

The sound is truly lovely, very warm and ancient, with a huge natural sustain. It can be played melodically, or as a rhythm instrument. When strummed quickly it is very jangly and happy, whereas when plucked slowly it can become a very reflective, mysterious, even medieval instrument.

My only issue was the very high action out of the box, which makes playing above the octave pretty much impossible, as the tuning goes and holding the strings down is a real effort. I'm still getting round to lowering it, which (hopefully) won't be too much of a challenge.

The instrument looks great, with a gorgeous rossette over the soundhole, which looks handmade. The gold machine heads match the coverplate at the bottom of the bridge, which really works looks-wise.

To conclude, a great investment for anybody interested in dabbling in alternative and folk instruments, I know I have a lot more to discover with this lovely bouzouki.

Nice Sounding Instrument / Okay Quality
Billy the Carrot, 17.09.2020
This instrument works nicely if you are looking to play Irish folk or medieval-style music.
It is a good value for money for a beginner player (like myself). It sounds really crisp and rich. The build quality is okay given the price, however there are some very minor flaws in the finish which maybe one would not notice at the first look.
The major issue is the high action which makes the playability really hard and throws the intonation off. I had to sand down the bridge a few mm to bring the action down for better playability. That could be done easily as the bridge is not glued to the body but only hanging by the tension of the strings. However if you don't feel like doing that yourself, any local guitar technician can do that for you.
Overall, it is a nice sounding instrument for a fair price, only that a little effort has to be done to make it play nicely.

Irish Bouzouki
16.06.2014
Excellent service from Thomann.

When this Bouzouki arrived I was very very pleased with the overall quality .The sound is excellent and the finish is well done .Everything about this instrument has amassed me from the gold tuners to the rose inlay centre hole which is made beautifully. The frets are good well crafted the beading around the edge is excellent .The F S E -3 band equaliser appears to do the trick and I have no complaints .It comes with a bag that is made of good quality material as is the whole instrument. I can honestly say I have not been able to fault it . If I hade to be really picky I think the action is a bit high but I am having mine adjusted, having said that I think everyone has there own preferences and this should not put you off choosing this Bouzouki.Execellent,price .Well made ,Superb .

Magic!
Epic Workshop, 15.02.2019
Excellent quality, all seams and joints are nicely done. Finish is also very nice. Tuners are fantastic. It rings for so long, like it has a reverb effect :D Definitely a nice instrument.
