I've purchased 40 Rogue baritone ukes in the past three years to use in teaching music to inner city kids. The ukes don't cost much so there's not much risk if a kid breaks his. The baritone uke is a also a great gateway to guitar later on. The uke is machine made, so there are adjustments to be made to some. I sometimes sand down the saddle to bring the strings closer to the neck, and I often file sharp edges on sides of the frets to make them smooth and more playable. But spending 10 minutes to save half the price of better ukes is a good investment of my time.

this uke is great for someone who is wanting something to just play around on,or a beginner not yet sure if they want to make a commitment, and not use it in a serious setting. It is an awesome price and has nice geared tuning knobs. The overall quality of the uke is very sloppy! I was not impressed by all of the visible glue on the product, as well as all of the nicks, and dents in the neck and fret board. the sound isn't terrible but after you change the srings it doesnt sound half bad. Overall, a cheap but an ok beginner uke.
color of product is nice, it has nice tuning knobs, sound is not bad for money.
chipping on neck and fret board, visible glue on entire ukulele, rough spots on neck around fret dots.
great price for any instrument, just isn't the best quality.

    Comments about Rogue Baritone Ukulele:

    Purchased this baritone ukulele for an easier practice jump to my soprano because of my fat fingers. I found out though that this ukulele is just a real small bass. So I put some new strings on it for good sounding strings never or rarely ever come on new stringed instrument's. So now I get to play a real small "like" bass ukulele along with acoustic guitar and ukulele. Buying this Rogue Baritone is something I would recommend to anyone needing a little more finger room on a fret board and a great little sounding stringed instrument w/ a "great little" case to boot at a most excellent price.

      Comments about Rogue Baritone Ukulele:

      Great Uke! It's biggest downfall is the original strings really suck! But I had read that in a number of the other reviews, so I also ordered some good strings. I don't know much about uke strings, but new strings were not expensive. The new strings are sooooooooo much better! Higher tension, nice tone. As long as the old strings were off, I sanded the saddle down a bit. Now the action is sweet. I've been playing it all day, and my dogs love it! For the sale price plus new strings, how can you go wrong? The gig bag is OK to throw in, but to be honest the cardboard box is going to be this little guy's case. I already put some twine thru the cardboard for a handle. Works great! Plays great! Sounds great! You should get one! :)

        Comments about Rogue Baritone Ukulele:

        You can tune these strings to perfection but then your chords sound awful. There's no easy way to fix it either. Play the 12th fret. It should be exactly one octave higher than the open string. If it's off, you've got a bad tone.

            Paid little to add a Bariton Uke to my "things to learn list." I was happy. It doesnt have the greatest tone or intonation but it was what I hoped for as far as cheap instraument is concerned. No issues on arrival. Strings intact, paint job fine, and tuning heads consistent.

              Bought this ukulele to determine if I liked the baritone or not and didn't want to drop a lot of cash on something I wasn't sure of. Didn't care for it initially, didn't like the tone, but switched out the stock strings with some aquilla strings and it made a world of difference. Still don't know if baritone is for me, but it's good to have the opportunity of only spending a little to explore this option.

              Much Better than Expected

              By CoachTMBSC

                Comments about Rogue Baritone Ukulele:

                I just wanted to fiddle with a ukulele because it looked interesting and I've never played one before. I have no vision of adding this to my collection of gig instruments and am really not going to spend time learning to be a true player of ukulele - it looked fun and it costs less than a dinner out.

                I don't professionally play fretted chording instruments (guitar etc) though I own more than a few that I mess around on. My review then is from the perspective of a non-player who is a trained musician picking up a hobby instrument.

                It took a few days for the strings to settle into tune and stay there. I understand that's normal for nylon strings.

                I know nothing about uke strings and haven't replaced what's on it even though I know that's a normal step in setup of any new stringed instrument. They now hold tuning pretty well but I do notice a few slight intonation problems in the scales.

                It's not very loud. I don't think it's supposed to be.

                The finish is sort of dull - I waxed it. I'm probably not supposed to but I did. Now it's prettier.

                I learned the 10 chords on the sheet it came with in about 20 minutes. No problem. The size is very-very comfortable for my short fingers to chord on. The tone is much more mellow than the more common little ukes which I find a bit more pleasant to sit around the living room strumming.

                I suspect that if you're a serious uke player that this one isn't going to meet your needs. I'd also expect that if you find you like playing uke that you'll want a better one very soon. If you're wanting something cheap to plink around on and maybe see if you like the baritone uke, this is playable out of the box for much less than any others.

                If I were considering tweaking it to make it more playable - new tuners (these gears aren't tight), new (lower) bridge, new (lower) nut, and new strings might be in order. But then it'd cost what some of the better ones cost and I might as well spend it on a better quality uke.

                It's more than fine for an occasional player or intro instrument.

                  I've had mine now for a couple years and i still have the same strings that come with it. This is a tough instrument, it's been dropped, bumped and knocked around and it still sounds great. My old instructor couldn't believe the good quality for such a low cost, he ordered one for himself. I'm VERY pleased with this wonderful uke.

                        A very pleasant surprise! Reasonably well designed and made. Rich sound even with stock strings (with Ukes I almost always get new , Aquilla, strings).Maybe I just got lucky with this one, but I'm very happy. It would have been5 stars if not for the fragile (though decent looking) finish and the high action (which I can fix, but a little hassle)
