        I bought the yellow one with plans on taking it with me when I practice juggling with hopes of working it into a show. The price is great because it will get knocked around. I had my luthier put 2 strap buttons on it (I will be removing one) and I put a red LEVY'S child / uku strap. It looks the part. So far I haven't found anything wrong with it.

        I'm an experienced guitar player who wanted to check out the ukulele. This one was perfect. It didn't cost much and, although the intonation is very poor, I was hooked in days. Will buy a better one now.

          Comments about Diamond Head DU-10 Soprano Ukulele:

          I bought this Ukelele on a whim to try out the instrument. Bad news: The stock string are practically fishing line, and go out of tune while playing. Good news: The sound is rich and full while in tune! Even better news: after putting a set of Martin soprano Ukelele strings on, it sounds even better, and keeps in great tune and is easy to play. Now my friends want their own Ukes to play along

            Comments about Diamond Head DU-10 Soprano Ukulele:

            I bought 19 ukuleles for beginning students. The action generally was a little high on some strings. I carefully lowered the individual strings (as needed) by reducing some of the nut material under the string(s). As with all new strings, the stretching took a few weeks to minimize to the point where the Ukuleles stayed in tune. Not a problem for someone who can tune an instrument.

                For the price, you would be hard pressed to find a better, all-around deal. A change of strings will do you good and a tuner that handles ukeleles (such as the fender tuner available here). That being said, I believe the paint deadens the tone a little bit, but all things considered this is a fun little instrument to play - my daughter loves it and my son wants one of his own.

                Comments about Diamond Head DU-10 Soprano Ukulele:

                Bought the light blue soprano to paint the sides for a cosplay for an anime convention. The soprano took some time to get it to start staying in tune but one you've played it for awhile it does start to keep in tune. It sounds very similar to my Diamond Head Concert uke. The tone is about the same. I thought it'd be a bit higher pitch as it's a smaller ukulele but it's not. It's a great little uke for the price. It's good for what I'm using it for.

                Comments about Diamond Head DU-10 Soprano Ukulele:

                Bought this looking for a uke for my toddler, who is fascinated by mine. Searched for something affordable and tough, wound up with this beauty. Bought the white and am personalizing it with sharpies. He loves it.

                The strings are, frankly, worthless and lose tune very quickly. I replaced the strings with some Martins and all is well. If you are buying this for a child it is worth buying strings too, because it is HORRIBLE to have to tune it every time the child shows interest, especially young children.

                Buy this expecting a great affordable tough learner uke and you'll be quite happy.

                  Comments about Diamond Head DU-10 Soprano Ukulele:

                  This is the second Diamon Head Uke I have acquired and it will not likely be the last. This instrument is everything I would look for in a student uke:
                  -the price is reasonable
                  -the tone is acceptable
                  -the intonation is accurate
                  -geared tuners mean it stays in tune well
                  -and kids are drawn to the colors!

                  The prices varied depending on the color, so this time I purchased the white uke.

                  You may want to know:
                  The paint is not flawless. The white allows the wood to show through a bit on the inside edge of the sound hole. The paint has a few tiny bubbles on one corner where it meets the fret board.
                  Also the uke itself is bright white, while the tuners, the nut and bridge saddle are off white (ivory color).

                  For the price range, as a student uke, it still gets a five star rating in my book.

                  I purchased five of these. Several different colors including one for myself. I have tuned and played every one of them. I will personalize them with names in gold, for Christmas gift. For the money they are great. They hold the tune very well and are easy to play. I would recommend these to anyone want an inexpensive uke.

                  Surprisingly decent tone for an inexpensive ukulele. Got the pink one for a present and although it had slight imperfections on the paint job, what can you expect for the price? Even comes with plastic gig bag.

                    I love this Uke. To elaborate on tag days, it is when we go out in front of stores and ask for money for our band. Everyone there seems to love it. I am able to keep it tuned well and due to the geared tuning it stays tuned. I bought this as an introduction for the instrument and have kept it for years. For the price it is, it is fantastic. A friend of mine bought a ukulele priced at 150 and his is worse than this one.
