Nice overall tone, but the 'G' chord is muffled.

      Comments about Makala Soprano Ukulele:

      I've seen ukes for 30 with plastic necks. This is at least a real instrument that sounds like a uke should and plays ok. It doesn't hold a tune great and there's nothing fine about it, but nothing too cheap about it either.

        Comments about Makala Soprano Ukulele:

        I bought this uke because it was recommended to me as a good beginner uke. I couldn't have been more pleased with the instrument I received in the mail. It doesn't look cheap, and doesn't look like a toy, nor does it sound like one. It is an amazing uke for it's price. The strings did fall out of tune in the first couple of days, but I had been told that was common with new ukuleles, and now the strings hold their tune fine. The sound is bright, warm, happy and tropical, and I couldn't love my Makala uke more!

            Comments about Makala Soprano Ukulele:

            I bought this uke for a 9 yo interested in playing (thanks Grace V and AGT). It seems solidly built with good tonal qualities. If my granddaughter decides the uke isn't for her, I'll keep it. The strings that came with it were low end and I bought a set of Martins as a replacement...when I know she really wants to learn.

            I've played guitar since the mid-60s and own a number of instruments, some from Musicians Friend (they have never let me down).

              I love this uke. I play it everyday and it is so pretty. The material is just so classy and so light i can bring it travelling since i travel a lot. The strings are made out of aquila strings do they are perfect! I just love it. The wokd is so nicely made.

                  Omg, I was totally excited when it came. I ordered it on Tuesday night and got it on Friday morning with just standard free shipping! And the strings are aquila which are good and love the sound! The wood is just so pretty and looks cool!
