      Overall, my rating is a 10 because I think the Ukulele Starter Pack is a fantastic value for what it is. Everybody should buy one and try it out! There might be less stress in the world lol. Ukulele strings don't make a beginner's fingers as sore as say a guitar will and that leads to more willingness to practice.

      So... if you don't know whether the ukulele is right for you, this cheap starter pack should be your pick. You're not wasting any money and this little ukulele could be your gateway drug . Have fun!
      The tuning pegs don't have as a tight a grip on the string as my other isntruments. If you can accept the fact, that you'll need to tune it just about every time you play it, you'll do fine. And if you're a beginner, you could use the practice anyway. It's only 4 strings. When you see Jake Shimabakuro play (he's famous), you'll note that he tunes his ukulele by ear before every song. If he can do it, you can do it .

      Other reviewers have said new strings have improved the tension on the strings. I haven't tried this, but I will. It's not unreasonable.

      Note: I gave the features a 7, but only because of the tuners.
      I didn't find any big, noticeable flaws. There's a small scratch or imperfection in the body that the finish was applied over, but for the money, it's not worth complaining about. The body of the ukulele is not shiny, but a pretty matte brown. It looks elegant for what it is. It seems put together well and neatly. It's nice looking!

      The gig bag is the cheapest one out of all the gig bags I have for various instruments. There's no pocket and it's made out of weird vinyl. There is no shoulder strap. But the handle is strong and the bag is padded, so it does protect the ukulele more than adequately.

      I gave the quality an 7 because of the tuners and the gig bag quality, but don't let any of this stop you from buying the ukulele pack. Buy it! It's totally worth the money and for a starter instrument, it's totally fine. Why spend more if you don't know whether you'll love playing the ukulele yet?
      The bottom line is that I got to try ukulele and decide whether I liked playing for a mere $$. With all my instruments, I promise myself that if I enjoy playing and pursue it actively, then I will buy myself an upgrade and gift my starter instrument to someone who might enjoy playing it as much as I do. I've had so much fun with this thing (you can get free lessons at ukeschool.com) that I'm definitely going to upgrade some time this year!

      If something happened to this little baby before I was ready to upgrade, I would definitely buy it again. Similarly, after owning one myself, I'd also buy it for other people as a gift. It's a starter instrument that may meet your needs forever or maybe you'll do like I do .

      I gave the value a 10 because it's a great value for the money. How many times in life can you pick up a new hobby for cheap - particularly a new musical hobby?

      I bought this as my first ukulele because I'm interested in playing, but I wanted to be sure that I'm going to stick with it before sinking a good chunk of money into a more expensive ukulele.
      The strings are cheap and hard to tune, but I had been told to expect that in a cheaper ukulele and I have some Aquila's coming in the mail.
      I would recommend this as a starter uke or something to travel with if you don't want to bang up a nicer instrument, but probably not to an experienced player.

                Great price to try out the ukulele. Definitely a good value if you're not sure if this instrument is right for you. After reading other reviews, I (mostly) fixed the tuning problem by tightening the screws on the back.

                      The tuning keys will not hold to tune it up. you cant play it if you cant tune it. For a beginner to learn, better fine one at a pawn shop then to buy this one.

                        It does have its problems. When you first try to tune it, it is almost impossible to keep in tune but the more it is tuned the better the friction pegs react. It also comes with a pitch pipe for tuning, a paper with chords and two songs, and a soft travel case. I believe that it is an excellent starter pack for the unexperienced that are sceptical about spending a lot on something they might not like. And you can also use it as a cheap back up if yours breaks.

                              This instrument is not worth your trouble. Forget the poor build, this instrument is impossible to keep in tune. The gears are worthless so you can forget about staying in tune after you start strumming. Sending mine back immediately. I was hoping to use this as a teaching instrument with students but this ukulele is a no go.

                                  That being said, the customer service at Musician's Friend through all this was great and they were really nice and helpful in allowing me exchange this one for a better ukulele.

                                  I don't understand what everyone is complaining about. You purchased a Ukulele STARTER PACK. I think it does a wonderful job for what it is. I have never played a Uke in my life, now I'm enjoying it very much. The strings may break easily during tuning if you are not gentle. But you should always be gentle with ANY instrument anyway! It is a fairly quiet instrument, so it is good for practicing any time, any place. Sound is perfectly acceptable for a starter pack, but certainly would not use for professional recordings or performances. Overall I am satisfied.
