I have been playing bass professionally for 40 years. For giggles, I decided to pick up a Uke. This one was recommended. It seems ok, but nothing to write home about. One of the tuning pegs appears to be shot as that string will not stay in tune. To be fair, the other 3 strings don't stay in tune for more than a couple of minutes, but the one strays significantly and is extremely difficulty to get in tune to start.

A Very Nice Uke for the price

By kalvinb

See all my reviews

Comments about Cordoba 15CM Concert Ukulele:

Overall I like the construction and finish of the ukelele. It sounds very good, stays in tune, and looks great. I really can't ask for more at this price.
A basic concert body ukelele made from laminated mahogony. Aquilla Nylgut strings are a nice touch. It sounds very good for the price--a solid top (for more bucks!) might sound better but this one is very good.
Smooth matte finish with no visable flaws. The inside label says "Hencho a mano"--made by hand--and possibly the final assembly was "by hand" in China. The binding and abalone rosette are nice touches and the setup is good as it comes from the factory. Intonation is very close and could be adjusted if the user feels it necessary (with some filing). The tuners are the weak spot. On mine they don't seem to slip and all the strings stay in tune but the peg gear disengages slightly from the worm gear on one string when it is loosened during tuning. I haven't got an inspection mirror small enough to fit inside to check the bracing and internal workmanship but it seems adequate.
A great value for the price--looks and sounds good.

    Comments about Cordoba 15CM Concert Ukulele:

    This ukulele was an impulsive buy for me. I play guitar and keys and was looking to learn something new, and one day woke up and decided, "I'm going to buy a ukulele!" Not all of my impulsive decisions have turned out as well as this purchase. I'm really pleased with the ukulele--it has a sweet, full tone, and is sturdy and well-made. I was nervous that it would be cheap or dull-sounding, but it is very good quality. Having done very minimal research on ukuleles before making this purchase, I can't say whether it would be the best pick for someone playing on a more experienced level, but for me, it has been perfect. Would definitely recommend for beginners or for other musicians who impulsively buy ukuleles. :)

      Comments about Cordoba 15CM Concert Ukulele:

      I went with a friend to help her pick out a Ukulele. We were impressed with the lone Cordoba 15CM that we found. It looks amazing and sounds lovely. It was in tune and was intonated very well surprisingly. Could easily compete with ukuleles that are 2x the price. She ended up buying it and a few days later, I purchased my own. Couldn't be happier and would definitely buy another if something happened to mine. I knew Cordoba has very nice classical guitars, but I now know that they make wonderful ukuleles as well!

      Great beginner uke!

      By Kenneth Mercer

      from Moss Bluff, LA

      Comments about Cordoba 15CM Concert Ukulele:

      All Things considered, this is an excellent bargain and a GREAT beginner uke.
      I did not want to overspend on my first uke, but I wanted a TUNABLE and PLAYABLE instrument that I could learn on. This uke measures up to all of Cordoba's claims.

      Taking into consideration that this is a low priced uke, it is an outstanding little instrument. The tuner for the 'C' string has a little slack(but is still effective), but aside from this small issue, there is nothing I can hold against it. The construction is tight. The neck is straight and firm. The fret work is clean and accurate. The binding and inlays are smooth. The wood and finish are attractive. The tone is warm and the notes are well-difined.

        Comments about Cordoba 15CM Concert Ukulele:

        After purchasing a tenor and a soprano, I wanted to try a concert (alto) ukulele. This particular model had many, many positive reviews; so, I ordered one. The uke has a nice tone, excellent strings which calmed down within a day after tuning. I was not disappointed at all. It's quite a good deal for the money and for the quality of the product.

        Very Nice Uke

        Comments about Cordoba 15CM Concert Ukulele:

        Only one drawback for me was that the instrument came without a gigbag or Case. Not as important to me as playability and quality but none the less a drawback.
        It's a standard Concert Ukulele so not many extra features.
        I've played a few ukulele's and this is by far the best I've played and ultimately the one I decided to buy last time.
        Totp quality instrument here and with the addition of the Nylgut strings was exceptional value.

            I got this as a gift for my girlsfriend (now my wife) so I get to play it a lot now, too. This Uke is the best quality bang for you buck. I had my brother in law change out saddle and nut for real bone, and it only sweetened the tone. I'll soon be getting him the soprano.

            Cordoba is a classical guitar company, so that was their approach in making their ukes. I'm pleased.

            Comments about Cordoba 15CM Concert Ukulele:

            I decided I wanted to learn to play the ukulele because I wanted an instrument I could sing to and bring around, and the fret spacing is much more suited to me since I play the violin as well. I didn't want to go overboard with my budget, but I didn't want a ukulele so cheap that I could clearly hear intonation issues, so the Cordoba was perfect for me. It looks and sounds amazing, and I love that it's a concert because the tone is more mellow and less jangly (like the soprano).

              After researching a variety of ukuleles and reviews, I decided to purchase the Cordoba 15CM Concert Ukulele to begin playing. I noticed right away the the high quality and sound produced from the ukulele. I went with the concert size over the soprano ukulele for a slightly larger sound and fit, and haven't been able to put it down since. It keeps in tune and was the perfect size to start with. Overall I'm am very satisfied with this product.

                I bought this as a Christmas gift for my wife who has been wanting one for quite some time now. Its a great product at a great price. She was very happy with it. As a guitarist myself I am very particular with how an instrument sounds, and I was afraid this was going to sound cheap, but in all honesty, I am very pleased with how it sounded. The shipping was amazingly fast too... I ordered it Monday, and it was in my office on Tuesday!

The fit and finish are far beyond my expectations, especially due to the excellent price at which it was offered. I continue to enjoy this ukelele and expect to do so well into the future. I am having so much fun learning the uke after 20+ years playing guitar. This uke makes the transition so easy!

                    I ordered this ukulele to encourage my daughter to start playing music. She will be 2 years old shortly.It is one of many instruments that we have available in our house. With the nylon strings and smaller size, this ukulele should be perfect for young students. It is not a toy. It is stored in a hard shell case that we also purchased along with a chord finder and song book. I strum and sing at home now and soon she will too. It is my hope. Playing music is meant to be fun, not the drudgery of scheduled practise and aim for perfection. This "mind set" from parents has turned a lot of students off. The mechanics may be there but music comes from the heart.

                        I would buy it if you're looking for a not too expensive, but still classy and vibrant uke.
                        It exceeded my expectations in looks, but only a little in sound. It plays beautifully, its not hard to learn, and it is just overall a great instrument. The only con I've found is that it doesn't stay in tune for that long, but it's gotten better recently.

                        Based upon my daughter's opinion provided to me of this ukulele, she likes playing the instrument & it sounds good!
                        Nice little uke! Binding is nice & workmanship looks to be decent.
                        Good Uke for playing with! Bought for my daughter & she really enjoys it (she is also a guitar player, and thinks the quality is good on this Uke).
