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:

    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:

    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.

        We bought this ukelele for my brother in law. I did share with him the reviewed concerns I read on your site. He has informed me that the Ukelele sounds beautiful and in fact reminds him of sounds from groups that he grew up with. So, so far so good!

          Worth the price.
          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.

          Comments about Diamond Head DU-200B Baritone Ukulele:

          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.

            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.

              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.
