Great to learn, and very well built.
I shopped around at music stores for a Ukulele for my beginner daughter for Christmas. I could not buy one for less than $200. I found this instument with all the trimmings at more than half price. It is beautiful and I am looking forward to giving it this Christmas!
The Makala Concert Ukulele is exactly the starter ukulele that I wanted. The sound is great, the quality is great, especially considering the price. It also came with Aquila strings which I frankly didn't even expect. so nothing to complain about. The ukulele game with high-G tuning. Love the little chromatic tuner that was part of the package, makes tuning so easy. The CD with lessons that also came as part of the package didn't work on the mac nor on my pc...no big deal since I bought a separate book with CD anyways. all in all...VERY happy!
My daughter loves the gift and we received just what we ordered. Thanks!
Purchased this set as a gift for my brother. He has a collection of acoustic and electric guitars, and thought he'd enjoy a Ukulele. Shipped pretty quickly, everything arrived as promised. Ascetically looks good. Competitive price from what I found online.
