I am a beginner, and this Cordoba 15CM Concert is my first uke. I absolutely LOVE it! Great sound, beautiful looks, great bundle price. The only negative is that I find myself preferring to play my new ukulele instead of doing other things...like homework!
This Cordoba 15CM concerto was one of our first Ukulele. I must say that after reading tons of review about this 15CM and other great Uke; I decided that I must play them myself. Luckily my Local music store carries a nice selection and I got to try different brands and different Uke sizes.
This Cordoba to me sounded the best. The other Uke sounds great too but I just couldn't put this 15CM down. The Tenor size also sounds really good, but that is for another day.
The Cordoba 15CM came with hardcase with the all the perks and a tuner. By the way, we can tune it with the piano as well. The Uke holds the tuning very well right out of the box, the sounds got richer and richer the more I am playing it. The play ability is good, this Uke could easily cost more than what I paid it for. It is more fun than the guitar LOL.
Overall, a great Uke.
I'm a beginner ukulele player. I have a Kala soprano, but have larger hands. This causes some difficulty in correctly fretting some cords on the soprano ukulele. The concert use does largely resolve this issue.
The Cordoba has good sound quality, to my untrained ear. However, I believe the Kala has a slightly tighter sound. This is most notable on the C string. The Cordoba has a slight buzz and the Kala does not. The could be due to my inexperience with strumming a concert size ukulele.
The Cordoba is a beautiful instrument and appears to be well made. Overall, I believe it is a good value for the price.
