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.

Rouge Baritone UKE: Not Bad if you can set it up.

By Rob-Y6ISN

from Dupont, WA

See all my reviews

Comments about Rogue Baritone Ukulele:

See comments above. It is my first review give me a break.
It's cheap. It works.I'd recommend a better uke for a beginner unless you have someone to set it up for you. Learning on a clunker can be frustrating. However it is a solid mini guitar that will take all sorts of abuse and peform well if you play around with it.

I have quality soprano, concert and tenor ukes as well as a few guitars and banjos. Actually I'm better at fixing them than playing them.

Order new light strings with the uke and replace the originals immeadately! It's still much cheaper than the next one up.

If yours looses tune after a couple of weeks of breaking in the strings; tighten the big phillips screw in the open tuners just a smidge. They are inexpensive, but they do work.

So out of the box mine held tune forever and sounded a little soft, but not bad for 30 bucks. It was playable. Intonation was close enough down the fret board to learn on and play in a group.

Tuned properly at the nut it was immeadately sharp on all frets with less problem as you work down the neck. Hard on the fingers too. Solution, replace the strings and sand about 16th of an inch off of the bottom of the nut. Better but still a little sharp on the bass strings and the bridge needs work. It is too tall and the cheap plastic is leaning toward the nut. Ok steal the dog's bone and make a new bridge. If I charged by the hour for this you would be better off buying a higher grade uke. Just lowering the plastic bridge, a few minutes work, makes a vast improvement. Bone is overkill for the uke strings, but I had plans. My first string seventh fret was a little low but epoxy and patience took care of that.

I do not know about the one bridge that came off in the reviews. That could be a problem, and if it is not glued in the right place it willl never sound right. I think if my bridge came off I'd put a tenor banjo tail piece on it and have a floating bridge. some of you understand.

So mine is bult like a tank, has a low sweet action and is currently sporting Erine ball nickle wire which brightens it up considerably visually and acoustically. This after considerable tinkering and probably outside of the scope of most beginners.

A mini folk guitar for less than $50, and a lot of fun. You can't find a tenor guitar that comes close.

Do not forget to have fun.

Rob
It is plywood and cheap. Built strong like bull. Not a delicate or bright instrument. NIce for old blues and folk music.
Hey! They are practically giving it away.

A real uke for a great price

By Sam Sixty

Comments about Rogue Baritone Ukulele:

I have been playing guitar for 4 years, but have basically stagnated in my progress. I wanted to try something new. The baritone uke caught my eye, but I wasn't sure I would be any good and I didn't have much money to spend. Let me tell you; this ukulele is a great product. It looks pretty, the tuners are quite good, and the frets are actually finished well. I had to take the saddle out and re-insert it properly, but this took about two minutes. I also bought some GCEA baritone strings and re-strung it. It sounds really good; certainly a lot better than I expected. This Rogue gives a perfectly playable instrument for less money than you might spend on dinner for the family. It also comes with a "gig-bag" that is made of really thick vinyl and is actually pretty good. If you're wanting to give the ukulele a try, I highly recommend this product.

A good value

Comments about Rogue Baritone Ukulele:

This uke is pretty. The action on 7 of my 12 ukes needed to be lowered a bit. Easy to do and the ukes are very playable now.
The Rogue baritone uke has wider string spread, making it easier to play, a larger body, and more resonance than a tenor uke. I bought 12 for a music class at church because I'm teaching kids 5 and up, and wanted something that wouldn't be a tragedy if broken. I could have bought just one better name brand for the same price.
For this price, it is machine made, but well made!
You get what you pay for, but I believe this uke is worth more than I paid!

    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.

    Returning

    By Donald Hagins

    from Orange park, FL

    Comments about Rogue Baritone Ukulele:

    Well, it looks good, for a very budget priced instrument. If it only had ANY performance...
    Decent wood and no visual flaws. Thought I had a real bargain - until I tried to play it!
    Second fret buzzes - couldn't play the thing - wouldn't have bought it in a store in this condition, so no choice but to return. Somebody at MF could at least do cursory Q/C on these things before they're shipped - save us all some trouble!
    As is, has no value!

    Comments about Rogue Baritone Ukulele:

    I loved my first Rogue so much, I bought a second one the following week. (I tune the second one as a bass to practice on.) I love not having to worry about them--if they fall on the floor, so what. They're really durable. The sound quality was surprisingly good, even with the original strings. True, the Rogues are like snowflakes; they each have their own unique flaws. And let me be clear: there are plenty of small flaws.The one with the better intonation has the worse paint job. The one with the better paint job has really rough fret edges. But they're like training wheels; at this price point, I feel really free to mess around with them and learn how to lower the action, paint them, add my own strap button...the list goes on. I'm even planning on electrifying one of them soon!

    Much Better than Expected

      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.
