I bought this about three years ago, while I was working at a summer camp. I had fooled around with my friend's Oscar Schmidt soprano ukulele, but I decided I needed my own, and I ended up with this. I've had this for three years now, and I can say this instrument has made me a musician. I've written countless songs on it, and I still love it to this day. Yes, you will have to tune it each time you play, especially if the weather or humidity has changed (all the instruments I have are like this, not sure what everyone is whining about). I definitely recommend changing out the black plastic strings that come with it for something higher quality. It's a great size, still comfortably small yet not quite as tiny as a soprano uke. It is extremely easy to play.

Judging from the comments there may be considerable variability among these instruments. Mine is very well made, looks nice, and the worst part about it is the strings. People complain about intonation but that is as much due to the strings as to the build. Change out the strings for nylgut and it will play like a much more expensive instrument. The laminated top limits what you can get out of it but it also greatly reduces sensitivity to climate and makes this a good travel instrument. Bottom line: Very nice for the price, but change the strings.

      Comments about Oscar Schmidt OU2 Concert Ukulele:

      This was the 2nd Oscar Schmidt OU2 I bought. One came from another company and I had to return that as well. I thought the first was just a bad one, but the 2nd wasn't any better.

      The most noticeable was the string buzz on open strings, indicating to me the nut was too low, and not an easy fix. Intonation was not good as well.

      Also, the frets were not smooth on the edge of the neck, and one of the side fret markers was recessed.
      Finally, two of the four tuning keys had blistered paint.

      As far as tone goes, it sounded very muted and dull. I have a Mitchell soprano that is much cheaper and sounds terrific.

      I took the information from Oscar Schmidt literally when they say "Inspected and adjusted in the USA by a skilled technician". They must have been out to lunch on both OU2's I purchased.

      Hopefully you won't make the same mistake I did (twice!).

                    Wanting to learn to play for the longest time, I bought from Musician's Friend after thorough research of all seller options. The package arrived well in advance and I couldn't be happier with my decision!

                      I have been more of a guitar player for many years, but for a few years have been playing ukulele. I haven't owned any high end ukuleles, but have used Lanikai and Kohala ukuleles until I got this one. This seems, so far, to be better. Hard to beat the price.
