      Far superior to the typical toy instrument.

      It's the real deal—used by professional performers at World Champion Surfing events and other venues for Hawaiian music. The UA10 is a soprano (standard) uke with traditional body style and a solid spruce top. Well made; great sound.

      Like most serious uke enthusiasts, I own a quivver of the addictive little things...acoustic, acoustic-electric, and electric...ranging from a dirt-cheap plywood beater to a solid wood art object. With the exception of the overachieving Applause UA-10...my most recent acoustic acquisition...I pretty much got what I paid for each step of the way. The UA-10 is an unusual and outstanding value because it has a solid spruce top in a price range where plywood is the rule. Yes, it also has an innovative fiberglass body, a fast neck, and high quality tuners...but it's the solid top that really matters. The UA-10's sound is virtually indistinguishable from the sound of my most expensive instrument...full, mournfully-resonant, and articulate. Based upon my experience with the UA-10, I wouldn't buy the "art object" if I had it to do over again. If you want the best acoustic uke sound-per-dollar value on the current market, the UA-10 is your ride.

      uke didnt feel like a real instrument, tuners didnt work, no screws to tighten tuners with... what else can i say it's just not the greatest quality.
      nut was poorly attached and the string cuts were sloppy

      Not bad for the size

      By Benny Roberts

      from all over

      Comments about Applause UA10 Standard Ukulele:

      Overall little guy is a great instrument. For the price its a pretty good deal for the amature or guy who doesn't care about the looks. the sound is amazing for the price of the uke. Great tone and resonance, the sestain is a little wanting but with such small strings and body who could blame it. the only think holding this uke back is it's size and shape. I would say this is a really good instrument though. Play it right and it will serve you well. *wink* *wink*
      Features. It's not a bad little ax. The volume is hard to gauge because of the way Applause works but I've played in some pretty packed rooms and every one could hear it so I assume it's pretty loud. The strings it comes with aren't half bad too, you could get new strings for it but I would wait for them to wear out and same some money. The body is unusually small and so is the neck. Not 'full' full sized; on the tiny side of things and the rounded body can be a little awkward to play; as long as you're sitting you should have no trouble playing it. Tuning is super easy; the gears hold. I've been able to tune the uke, play it hard for an hour, and still be in tune.
      Worth the money. Not an amazing traditional uke but really nice sound for the price and concidering it's not a traditional bodied instrument. It sure as hell isn't a toy. Great sound on this little guy. People have come up to me after a show and told me it sounds like an angelic harp, just goes to show this is a serious instrument if you play it right.
      Not a bad value for the instrument. It's not a toy and it can be a serious instrument if you can play it. It can handle a lot of differnt styles, I've plucked and strummed and it sounds good both ways. The only draw back is it's size. It's a bit on the small size of the uke scale. Ukuleles are small yes, but this is the runt of the litter. Plus it doesn't look traditional so if you really want the look I would go with something else. Plus if you have big hands, maybe not the best for you; the frets are closer than normal ukes. Don't get me wrong, it's nor a child's uke, but it's not a big burly man hand uke either.

      this is a great ukulele, simply said. it has a lud, full sound, nice weight, stays in tune well, and the round back contours the body very comfortably. id never think such a great uke could be attained so affordably!

      Great Product

      Comments about Applause UA10 Standard Ukulele:

      My UA10 arrived a couple days ago, and after looking over a ukulele chord chart, I was able to start playing great sounding music surprisingly quickly. I have never been more happy with an instrument purchase as I am about this little gem. The uke is very solidly built and produces very nice tones. I would recommend any beginning ukulele player buy the Applause UA10, you won't be disappointed.

      Cant but it down

      Comments about Applause UA10 Standard Ukulele:

      I got this Uku for xmas...I pick it up everyday to jam or just when i am sitting watching T.V, the sound is amazing, so loud and bright, the ovation back is just great cause it is alot brighter sounding, also it stays in tune, rarley have to tune it *note the strings it comes with arent the greatest so pick some good ones up and but them on, make its sound so much better*, It also looks great and feels great...A+ on this UKU VERY VERY HAPPY WITH IT.

      Wonderful Uke!

      Comments about Applause UA10 Standard Ukulele:

      I've played guitar for over thirty years and this is my first Ukelele. I am so satisfied, the overall look and feel is understanded with clean classic lines. The sound and action are fine. I've looked around town at other Ukes, some over twice the price and they don't compare with the quality of workmanship, sound and feel. This is just a wonderful instrument, not a toy, the real deal!!

      Beautiful piece of work

      Comments about Applause UA10 Standard Ukulele:

      This is my second ukulele, I've been playing for about 8 months now. This baby, has so much tone, the tuning pegs are great, the body is lovely to look at, and the sounds it makes are just amazing. This is definitely a great buy, and I would suggest the ukulele to anyone. Just, don't play with acrylic nails, it sounds very twangy haha. :)

      Excellent Ukulele

      By ukulelelover13

      from Edmonds, WA

      Comments about Applause UA10 Standard Ukulele:

      I got this as my first uke and it is amazing. It has a great sound, especially with a pick, and although the factory strings are okay, the uke will sound much better with new ones. I was surprised at how small it was at first, but soon got over it for it has a great sound. It also, although it is not mentioned, has a plastic back. I can't wait to learn some tunes! It was a great deal.

      Amazing Starter Uke

      By XxAWKxX

      from Central NJ

      Comments about Applause UA10 Standard Ukulele:

      Ive been playing bass for 10 years, guitar for 4. I wanted to try something new and different so I went online and looked around and ordered this baby. When it arrived in the mail I took it out and was surprised I wasnt expecting it to be so small. I got over that fast though. I tuned it and started playing it and fell in love. It took about 4 days to stretch out the strings and I find I always have it with me. Great buy I love it and cant wait to serenade the babes with it.

      Wonderful Uke!

      Comments about Applause UA10 Standard Ukulele:

      This is my first ukulele. I have been so surprised at this little instrument! The factory strings it came with gave me a good couple of days of learning how to tune. But, I bought new strings and it stays in tune wonderfully. It plays clear as a bell and has a great sound. I would recommend this instrument to anyone wanting a ukulele!
