          I bought this about three years ago, while I was working at a summer camp. I had fooled around with my friend's Oscar Schmidt soprano ukulele, but I decided I needed my own, and I ended up with this. I've had this for three years now, and I can say this instrument has made me a musician. I've written countless songs on it, and I still love it to this day. Yes, you will have to tune it each time you play, especially if the weather or humidity has changed (all the instruments I have are like this, not sure what everyone is whining about). I definitely recommend changing out the black plastic strings that come with it for something higher quality. It's a great size, still comfortably small yet not quite as tiny as a soprano uke. It is extremely easy to play.

          I've had this uke for over a year now. After upgrading to the Lanikai sm-ce, and just playing this one a ton, i've learned that it's not worth the money. mine came much darker, the bridge needed to be pressed down and glued, and just overall horrible sound and intonation. Better off spending a little more on a lanikai then going with this.

            Comments about Oscar Schmidt OU2 Concert Ukulele:

            I picked up this ukulele during the black friday sales and at first was pretty disappointed. It sounded like a cheap toy. I decided to restring the uke and give it another chance, and found myself pleasantly suprised at the difference in sound quality. No longer did it seem like a childrens toy but an actual instrument, one that I would recommend. It's definitely one I'm going to keep as a backup!

              It's 9/16 the ukulele I expected.

              • Strong

              Comments about Oscar Schmidt OU2 Concert Ukulele:

              The bad: Nut placement is way off. Needed shimming. Black strings took a long time to settle in. Bridge cut strings. Tuners are more like those on a 9/16ths priced uke. The look much more solid than they are.

              The good: Good volume. Fearless. Straight neck and solid bracing. Well finished fret wires. Nice looking.

              I play this thing all the time and doubt I could do justice to a better uke. It's got that classic, cheap uke, not quite in tune no matter what you do, sound. And plenty of it.

              I have owned the OS Uke for about 6 months now. Never falls out of tune, sounds great, I beat the heck out of my strings and they have held up perfect. I have been playing guitar for 20 years and never owned a uke before this one. Can't beat the price and the quality of this model. Looks great, sounds great, plays great, what else do you need?

              Comments about Oscar Schmidt OU2 Concert Ukulele:

              So I just recently bought this ukulele and there were several cons to it, the first being that the body of the ukulele looks nothing like the picture, the second being that it goes out of tune over night every night if you are looking for something to pick up every once in a while and use then this may be for you but overall i will probably get a better ukulele and do more homework before purchasing another one.

              Starter Uke

              By Mai Tai Mike

              from Kentucky

              Comments about Oscar Schmidt OU2 Concert Ukulele:

              The Oscar Schmidt OU2 Ukulele is a great starter uke for the money. I have owned mine for 2 years and my son has owned his just shy of that. It has some great features such as geared tuners, a rosewood fretboard, all the fret ends were smooth and the strings were decent. It stays in tune and it looks good overall. Intonation may not be perfect and the action just a tad high. But overall you will be very happy with this as your first uke.

              Intonation: Fatal Flaw!

              By Mo' Jam's

              from Tucson, Az

              Comments about Oscar Schmidt OU2 Concert Ukulele:

              BEWARE! OSCAR SCHMIDT/WASHBURN UKULELES ARE GARBAGE!Nice name, nice look, nice hardware, but one fatal flaw: HORRIBLE INTONATION!If you only play in the first position or are buying a toy for your niece, it?s okay.But if you are a serious musician (is a Ukulele ever serious?) DON?T BUY ONE!Try this: play an open A chord, then play the same movable shape up the neck.The higher you go, the more the 1st and 4th strings deviate from the unison they are.

              Great First Ukulele

              By Erie Canal Uker

              from Brockport, NY

              Comments about Oscar Schmidt OU2 Concert Ukulele:

              One of the tuners didn't work on the first one but the music store gave me a different one no questions asked. This is a perfect starter for someone with larger hands. It's easy to play and stays in tune after a couple of weeks like most ukes. My only minor complaint is having to file down the ends of all of the fret wires. I highly recommend the OU-2 to anyone.
