OVERVIEW

A large ukulele with a deep bass tone that's easy to play.

Ukuleles are popular for a reason-they are just plain fun to play. Slightly larger than a tenor, the Diamond Head DU-200B Baritone Ukulele is carefully handcrafted from select mahogany and combined with a bridge and fingerboard made of rosewood for a soulful sound and excellent playability. As the largest of the ukulele family, baritones offer a much greater bass range than smaller ukuleles. And with their longer scale length, they also make an excellent crossover instrument for guitarists. Tuning the DU-200B is easy with reliable, guitar-style tuning machines that are perfect for the beginner or the advanced player. Topped off with perfectly dressed frets, quality strings and a pro set-up, these Diamond Head Ukes are a great deal.

Includes gig bag.

FEATURES
  • Mahogany body and neck
  • Rosewood fingerboard and bridge with M.O.P. plastic dots
  • Accurate 14:1 gear ratio, gold-plated guitar-style tuners with white plastic buttons
  • White plastic nut and saddle
  • Natural mahogany, polyurethane finish
  • Scale length: Baritone (511mm)
  • Black gig bag included

This is my first baritone ukulele. I do play regular concert ukulele and both are fun to play. This ukulele is nice, and the action is really good on the neck, and its easy to play. The size is the biggest of all ukuleles. The one I received the tuners on it are black not white like in the picture, and the ukulele comes with a gig bag. The gig bag is horrible, its the cheapest looking gig bag I've ever seen. It's about as thick as a trash bag and feels like a trash bag. I think the ukulele might actually be protected more in a trash bag than the gig bag. The ukulele stays in tune really well, but mine is missing its serial number that's supposed to be in the soundhole. Overall I would recommend someone to buy it. I would just suggest that you also purchase a decent gig bag.

I've played bass guitar since 1977, and felt like trying something new. A baritone uke seemed like a reasonable choice.

For it's price point this is a great instrument. It's well-constructed of decent materials, and the geared tuners are a nice touch. It sounds great, stays in tune and is fun to play.

On the other hand, the gig bag is junk. It's better than nothing, but a heavier fabric would better protect the instrument.

My biggest gripe is the horrible setup. Out of the box the uke is unplayable. The nut and bridge slots are far too shallow, so the action is too high and it's impossible to play the uke in tune.

I took it in today to my local shop, and they said they can do a nice setup for an additional fee including new Aquila strings.

Bottom line: This is a nice starter instrument, but be prepared to spend some additional money to get it in playable condition.

Cheers,

Matt

    Comments about Diamond Head DU-200B Baritone Ukulele:

    Most versatile ukulele. As is, gives small, bright guitar sound, capo V or VII and you've got a tenor or soprano - instantly.
    I record a lot of ethnic music, and along with my mandolin and balalaika, can mimic sound of just about any culture, worldwide. I usually track at least 2 guitars, one hard left, the other hard right, either doubling, or to do question and answer. The Bartitone ukulele giver a great, less chunky alternative to a second guitar.
    Bought the DU-200B because it's wood looks similar to my Taylor acoustic.

      Not a bad little instrument for the price. Needed the over glue removed from the frets, a good wipe down with guitar polish and restrung with good strings. With those 3 tasks accomplished, it's a delight.
      Sure, there are more expensive/better instruments available but if you want a budget instrument that you can play as a baritone & with a capo - tenor or soprano, this one can't be beat.
      I've read negatives about the gig bag it comes with, but it's much better than nothing. There are better cases available, but the gig bag that came with it will work for me.

      The finish is kind of crude/rough.
      It sounds great.
      The B string came with some annoying embedded grit which could partially be removed with some scrubbing. I replaced the strings with a quality set right away.

        This is a beautiful, mellow sounding Ukulele. I bought two baritone ukes for the kids to practice on; a 40 one and this one for 73 . The 33 extra was well worth the difference. It's a beautiful instrument and I am enjoying playing it even though I have others that are more costly. I put new strings on it right away and it couldn't sound better. These are the strings I used, they are great and I watched a YouTube video and was able to install them easily myself: AQUILA GCEA Low Tune Baritone Ukulele Strings. Now all of our ukes have GCEA tuning so when the kids learn one, they can cross over and play the other instruments we already own. This uke sounds more like a baby guitar than a uke. Love it.

        Comments about Diamond Head DU-200B Baritone Ukulele:

        I was totally unaware that a Baritone Ukulele is tuned liked the high end of the guitar (DGBE).
        Unless you buy a certain gauge of string, & You well need to restring it rite away!
        Right out of the box it was HORRIBLE! The action was Way High & the strings would not even come Close to tuning up due to slippage thru the tuning peg. I slacked up the strings & removed the Nut & Saddle. Then I filed off about HALF the height of the saddle from the bottom of it & I also filed off some from the bottom of the nut. After some fine tuning of the two, the action came to a tolerable height. I then restrung it with some new strings making sure to enter lock them into the tuning peg to prevent slippage.
        After all was said & done, It SOUNDS REALLY GOOD & PLAYS VERY NICE!
        I would recommed it ONLY IF YOU HAVE SET-UP KNOWLEDGE! Or a willingness to learn.
        GOOD LUCK!!!

            • Fun playing a Ukulele. Tunes like tenor guitar.

            Comments about Diamond Head DU-200B Baritone Ukulele:

            I was missing the tenor ukulele I sold recently. So I got this Diamond Head Baritone. Think of it as a classical tenor guitar. Tunes the same as the four treble side strings of a six string classical guitar. Easy on the fingers. My 8 year old granddaughter grabbed it when she came in the door and played and played it. Later she accompanied her dad as he played mandolin for her great grandmother at the nursing home. We got our money's worth from this instrument in one weekend. It's all plywood, no binding, but plays great. Ignore the hang tag that comes with the instrument as it gives the tuning for smaller three ukes not for a baritone. Being unfamiliar it took me a bit to get the right tuning DGBE, D being the bass side E being the treble side of the layout. It comes with a dust cover plastic-y zip pouch, at least they tried and the instrument alone is plenty of value for the price paid. Quality of manufacture 90 percent. As the design is all about inexpensive production to put a playable instrument in your hands. Otherwise go drop four bills on solid wood and higher quality as this is for fun and entry level. Two thumbs up from me.

            Comments about Diamond Head DU-200B Baritone Ukulele:

            A little frustrated since my first DH barry uke suffered a slightly lifting bridge but outstanding tone. Working with Musicians Amigo to exchange it was amazingly fair, satisfying and timely but ironically, the second unit, while perfectly built, didn't match the first tonally. I wasn't surprised since I've owned many acoustical instruments and found that often, even among the revered builders, you'll always find identical units vary substantially with regard to tone. However, the new uke is a good one, if not a great one, and certainly worth the money.

                  Tunes easily and stays in tune! Great sound and plays very easily. Setup was very good and needed no adjustments. A lot of fun to play! The only downside is the finish is a little rough, but otherwise, this is well worth the money. The very cheap bag this case with isn't worth including in the box. I'd recommend anybody getting this, that needs a case, buy the Baritone Uke case available from Musicians Friend... very nice case and fits perfectly.

                  I had higher expectations after reading the reviews about this baritone ukulele. Bought as a gift for a child. The strings are too high and would hurt fingers even though they are nylon. I didn't want to spend the time filing so I shipped it back. Might as well buy the rogue for almost half the price if you're going to file.

                        Just getting into ukulele and this is tuned like a guitar. Came with some poor strings and the pegs are not too great as I have to retune continually, but the sound is fairly loud and clean. Great value so cannot complain too loudly. Fine to learn and easy to bring for practice.
