        Comments about Martin S1 Ukulele:

        Comes with soft case which has cool Martin embossed logo which was a nice surprise. Sounds great. Holds tuning great (had to tighten pegs). Everything you expect from Martin quality & craftsmanship! Bought my son a rouge ukulele to make sure it wasn't a fad. He's really into it and this is the perfect next level ukulele.

        Comments about Martin S1 Ukulele:

        I love Martin Guitars and Ukuleles. I have been to the factory tour and played and owned many of their instruments including a 1930s/40 Martin Ukulele. I honestly was a little disappointed in a few little things that showed a lack of attention to details that is inconsistent with the Martin Reputation. The A and G strings were strung the wrong way. The G was strung clockwise, and the A was strung counter-clockwise. The action was quite high and the saddle needed filed and lowered. There was a slight deadening string buzz that indicated that the nut was not filed properly that improved after I filed/sanded it myself. The strings were terrible and I replaced them with Aquilas.

        I do believe this uke will improve with age. I love the sound of solid mahogany and I appreciate the extra frets. The tuners are nice. It's a well balanced instrument, and with my adjustments is a joy to play. I have many other ukuleles - Kala, Lanikai, Ovation, etc and none of them have arrived with some of the problems this one did. I expected more from Martin. I know it is built in Mexico and not in the US, but a factory overseen by Martin should do better with the little things.

        Musicians Friend was excellent. I got this at a great price during their warehouse sale and it shipped promptly and arrived safely.

        I'm hoping this ukulele will last me a lifetime and improve with age and the more it is played.

        Comments about Martin S1 Ukulele:

        The Martin S1 has taken its share of criticism on the internet for not being what people expected it to be. As if Martin should make the same sounding ukuleles ad infinitum. I take issue with that narrow approach because this fine instrument stands on its own worth and adds to the history of great sounding soprano sized mahogany ukuleles. The S1 has a nice bark - not boomy - with a distinctive upbeat sound, a comfortable fingerboard with room for large hands and fingers. It is a plain Jane workhorse that has gotten better sounding for me these past two years of ownership. The S1 is a winner.
