      I just bought this from the local music shop about a week ago. I got it just to experiment with the sound (playing guitar songs on ukulele) Well you cant really do that easily because of the tuning of a ukulele. It took a little getting used to the tiny nylon strings after just playing guitar. Anyway, It's a lot of fun. I play it more than my guitars now and I've progressed quickly already. I have some chords and strumming down. It's difficult because it's so small and fragile, but once you play for a few days, it gets easier. I haven't had any problems with it, but it's still new. There's not a lot to say, what you see is what you get and the price is reasonable for it. I will eventually get a better one if I stick to playing it. It's my first ukelele, but I learn good on it so far, so I guess I can say it's good for beginners. Hope this helps. Peace out, piggies.

      Hard to Tune

      It was really hard to tune the ukulele without a tuner.

        Comments about Diamond Head DU-150 Soprano Ukulele:

        As soon as I took it out of the box I noticed that the stringsame would need replacing. I decided to replace them later so I tried to tune them. I tuned it to the standard tuning and it just kept slipping. Not even by half steps! They'd go down by 3 whole steps sometimes. I guess it would be okay as a practicing ukulele once you replace the strings. It looks pretty though and the inlays are in there. But the bag it came with feels so cheap, like a scratchy grocery bag. I ordered an extra one on accident but I'm glad I did.

          It's my first uke. I've been playing guitar for years, so I'm experienced. It seems to go out of tune very easily.

            i am a beginner uke player...for the price, this soprano uke is a very good in quality and tone...it is not a toy..and although new strings stretch, the saddle, bridge, nut and tuners looks solid and keeps the strings in tact...and the body and soundboard gives it a very good, rich tone in this price range...after much research, i am glad i chose this as my first ukelele...if taken good care, this one will keep for many years...on-line purchase and delivery was very fast with secure packaging which i appreciate from musicians friend...good job...good purchase...

                    I got this Ukulele for my toddler in hopes that he would stop beating on mine. So far it's held up well to his abuse and he really enjoys having his own instrument to knock around with. The tone is decent though the strings are stiff and poor quality. I'm looking forward to putting a nicer set on to improve the sound and playability. Also, the finish seems to be sprayed on and not really saturated into the wood. It has chipped off at a couple spots and I imagine it will continue to do so, but again, for the price it really is a pretty nice little instrument.

                      great service, got the uke in 4 days. ive been playing about 6 months, and this diamondhead is replacing a kohala which never sounded as good as this, even with new strings. intonation is adequate, not even bad in the upper registers, the strings while not aquilas , are just fine. I definitely recommend this uke for anyone starting out, and even anyone playing for up to 2 years. a great buy at a great price, cant go wrong here.

                        I bought this back in June as a first ukulele, and it's still going strong. When you first buy it you do have to tune it a lot, but that's just because they're nylon strings and they stretch, but that does go away. The sound is great, and it comes with the soft case so it's easy to transport (I've taken it with me to many camps, parties, etc.). It might not be as good as more expensive ukes, but as far as I'm concerned it's a great one to learn on.

                          I have played guitar for about 8 years now but always wanted a ukulele and since it's inexpensive I figured I'd try it out. I love this little thing. Nice cheerful tone and it's a fun change of pace from my usual metal guitar style. The strings are new so they stretch a lot and require a lot of re-tuning at first but after you break the strings in a little they'll sound fine and stay in tune. Best of all it's small enough for my little daughter to play with and it's helping her get involved in music.
