Summary: I own a number of ukuleles, from a fretless U-Bass to a fine Kamaka soprano I bought in Hilo. There are times when I have a few quiet moments at work, so I wanted a fun knock-around uke to take with me. After trying various manufacturer's ukes, it seemed like the Makala line was the best value.
Summary: Let's start by saying I'm not a uke expert at all - only 3 weeks in at this point. I decided I wanted to re-establish a new musical foundation for myself after a few years of musical atrophy and began my search for the perfect cheapo uke (classically trained on viola, self taught drums & analog...
Summary: As a newbie Uke player, I didn't want to spend too much on my first instrument, but wanted something better than a toy. I love it! The strings took about 3-4 days to settle in and now it stays in tune with very little tweaking. I like its unique pineapple shape, it's light and easy to hold.
Summary: I thought it would be fun to get a Ukulele to learn to play some simple songs for my son. This product is priced like a toy, but is a pretty nice instrument. It is way simpler to learn basic chords than on a guitar since there are only four strings instead of six. It has been a lot of fun.
Summary: I bought my makala ukulele from amazon it came 2 days early... I travel alot for my job and i wanted something small enough to bring with me to hotel rooms or on an airplane ...When I opened it it was beautiful and I was really surprised at the detail there wasn't any bumps super smooth finish ..
Summary: Best ukulele for the money. Outstanding sound and volume projection. Make sure that it is tuned GCEA exactly or it will sound really bad. Pay special attention to the A, making the tuner says it's A and not A# or something. Tuning needs to be EXACT!
Summary: This is a fantastic beginner ukulele. It's sturdy, looks nice, plays nice, and is a generally superb instrument. For the price, I'll give it 5 stars, although you have to tune it often until the strings stretch out properly.
Summary: WOW this uke is amazing! I just started playing and after getting it tuned it was fantansit! it is comfortable and louder than my friends non pineapple soprano. This is a great instrument to play if your looking for something easy and fun! again great uke for the money
Summary: I've been playing guitar for years and wanted to try the ukulele. I wanted something cheap yet not junk and something I could bring with me for travel and if it got lost or broke wouldn't hurt the bank. Oh yeah and a pineapple shape. Read tons of reviews and finally decided on this.
