      Rouge Baritone UKE: Not Bad if you can set it up.

      See comments above. It is my first review give me a break.
      It's cheap. It works.I'd recommend a better uke for a beginner unless you have someone to set it up for you. Learning on a clunker can be frustrating. However it is a solid mini guitar that will take all sorts of abuse and peform well if you play around with it.

      I have quality soprano, concert and tenor ukes as well as a few guitars and banjos. Actually I'm better at fixing them than playing them.

      Order new light strings with the uke and replace the originals immeadately! It's still much cheaper than the next one up.

      If yours looses tune after a couple of weeks of breaking in the strings; tighten the big phillips screw in the open tuners just a smidge. They are inexpensive, but they do work.

      So out of the box mine held tune forever and sounded a little soft, but not bad for 30 bucks. It was playable. Intonation was close enough down the fret board to learn on and play in a group.

      Tuned properly at the nut it was immeadately sharp on all frets with less problem as you work down the neck. Hard on the fingers too. Solution, replace the strings and sand about 16th of an inch off of the bottom of the nut. Better but still a little sharp on the bass strings and the bridge needs work. It is too tall and the cheap plastic is leaning toward the nut. Ok steal the dog's bone and make a new bridge. If I charged by the hour for this you would be better off buying a higher grade uke. Just lowering the plastic bridge, a few minutes work, makes a vast improvement. Bone is overkill for the uke strings, but I had plans. My first string seventh fret was a little low but epoxy and patience took care of that.

      I do not know about the one bridge that came off in the reviews. That could be a problem, and if it is not glued in the right place it willl never sound right. I think if my bridge came off I'd put a tenor banjo tail piece on it and have a floating bridge. some of you understand.

      So mine is bult like a tank, has a low sweet action and is currently sporting Erine ball nickle wire which brightens it up considerably visually and acoustically. This after considerable tinkering and probably outside of the scope of most beginners.

      A mini folk guitar for less than $50, and a lot of fun. You can't find a tenor guitar that comes close.

      Do not forget to have fun.

      It is plywood and cheap. Built strong like bull. Not a delicate or bright instrument. NIce for old blues and folk music.
      Hey! They are practically giving it away.

      this uke is great for someone who is wanting something to just play around on,or a beginner not yet sure if they want to make a commitment, and not use it in a serious setting. It is an awesome price and has nice geared tuning knobs. The overall quality of the uke is very sloppy! I was not impressed by all of the visible glue on the product, as well as all of the nicks, and dents in the neck and fret board. the sound isn't terrible but after you change the srings it doesnt sound half bad. Overall, a cheap but an ok beginner uke.
      color of product is nice, it has nice tuning knobs, sound is not bad for money.
      chipping on neck and fret board, visible glue on entire ukulele, rough spots on neck around fret dots.
      great price for any instrument, just isn't the best quality.

        Comments about Rogue Baritone Ukulele:

        Bought this ukulele to determine if I liked the baritone or not and didn't want to drop a lot of cash on something I wasn't sure of. Didn't care for it initially, didn't like the tone, but switched out the stock strings with some aquilla strings and it made a world of difference. Still don't know if baritone is for me, but it's good to have the opportunity of only spending a little to explore this option.

        Much Better than Expected

          Comments about Rogue Baritone Ukulele:

          I just wanted to fiddle with a ukulele because it looked interesting and I've never played one before. I have no vision of adding this to my collection of gig instruments and am really not going to spend time learning to be a true player of ukulele - it looked fun and it costs less than a dinner out.

          I don't professionally play fretted chording instruments (guitar etc) though I own more than a few that I mess around on. My review then is from the perspective of a non-player who is a trained musician picking up a hobby instrument.

          It took a few days for the strings to settle into tune and stay there. I understand that's normal for nylon strings.

          I know nothing about uke strings and haven't replaced what's on it even though I know that's a normal step in setup of any new stringed instrument. They now hold tuning pretty well but I do notice a few slight intonation problems in the scales.

          It's not very loud. I don't think it's supposed to be.

          The finish is sort of dull - I waxed it. I'm probably not supposed to but I did. Now it's prettier.

          I learned the 10 chords on the sheet it came with in about 20 minutes. No problem. The size is very-very comfortable for my short fingers to chord on. The tone is much more mellow than the more common little ukes which I find a bit more pleasant to sit around the living room strumming.

          I suspect that if you're a serious uke player that this one isn't going to meet your needs. I'd also expect that if you find you like playing uke that you'll want a better one very soon. If you're wanting something cheap to plink around on and maybe see if you like the baritone uke, this is playable out of the box for much less than any others.

          If I were considering tweaking it to make it more playable - new tuners (these gears aren't tight), new (lower) bridge, new (lower) nut, and new strings might be in order. But then it'd cost what some of the better ones cost and I might as well spend it on a better quality uke.

          It's more than fine for an occasional player or intro instrument.

            I've had mine now for a couple years and i still have the same strings that come with it. This is a tough instrument, it's been dropped, bumped and knocked around and it still sounds great. My old instructor couldn't believe the good quality for such a low cost, he ordered one for himself. I'm VERY pleased with this wonderful uke.

                  A very pleasant surprise! Reasonably well designed and made. Rich sound even with stock strings (with Ukes I almost always get new , Aquilla, strings).Maybe I just got lucky with this one, but I'm very happy. It would have been5 stars if not for the fragile (though decent looking) finish and the high action (which I can fix, but a little hassle)

                  For the low price, you would think that the instrument might suffer in quality. Quite the opposite. It stays in tune relatively well up and down the neck. Great for writing songs, and generating ideas. This is a must have instrument for guitar based song writers.

                      Even after tuning the Uke, it goes immediately out of tune. It's frustrating. Just a few strums before it sounds horribly out of tune. I may be a novice to the Uke, but I've played piano for 43 years.

                      A great ukulele for starting out on, I had to sand down the bridge to lower the strings. Once
                      the strings are streached out they pretty much stay in tune. I will be putting different strings on them after a while. It is great just to sit and plunk around on this thing while the commercials are on.

                      This arrived at my house 20 hours ago. First baritone ukulele I've ever run across, and I've never played guitar. I've already plucked out two songs, and I'm well on my way to a third. I just wanted an instrument that I could use to amuse myself, play some music around the house. This is perfect. Sound quality is dreadful compared to instruments 10x the price, but for what I want, it's just fine. Bought the strings to make it sound like a bigger Tenor, but I'm not sure I want to put those on quite yet.
