I am a school music teacher and bought these to use with my classes. The kids loved the dolphin shaped tuners. I found them easy to tune, and the variety of colors was and is great fun! So many children these days want to be guitar players. These ukuleles are an affordable way to begin skill building that can be applied to guitars when the children are bigger - though my high school seniors loved them, too!
This is a bargain priced ukulele that does everything such a ukulele should do. After the nylon strings were stretched out by a week of constant tuning, they began to hold their pitches quite well. The brown ones had slightly better sound than the other ten colors.
I bought 22 of these ukes, 2 each of the eleven colors. They survived four weeks of elementary children from grade 1 - 6 in very good shape, even the ones that were dropped. They have a nice tone (especially the brown ones) and sound great.

I think the brown ones sounded better because a different sort of finish was used, rather than the very attractive looking glossy paint.
Like the ad says, at this price, you can buy more than one to coordinate with your outfit.

Right off the bat, I have to complain how much a nuisance this thing is to keep in tune. Even after a week of letting it settle and regularly pulling it back in tune, it would fall out of tune after about 5-10 minutes of playing, and noticeably so.

It's also got some problems with intonation. Many of the frets are poorly placed, so playing anything more than basic chords isn't recommended, as they will sound very off. Even some of the lower registers are very poorly intonated, and there's no way to adjust this short of getting the saddle/bridge off and placing it in a slightly better spot, which is more work than it's worth.

Negative things aside, the uke still has a pretty good sound. I've played ones more expensive as this that didn't sound as nice, and it's a very sturdy instrument.

Overall, it's a good ukelele if you aren't sure you want a ukelele yet, are a beginner, or just want one to screw around with. I wouldn't recommend using it for any serious work, such as recording or doing a gig. You -will- have to get over the constant re-tuning problems, but once you do, it's a very fun instrument to play, and it's something anyone can pick up.

    So easy and fun to play. Bought the brown one based on the reviews that it seemed to sound better. After playing for a few hours, the strings were able to stay pretty in tune. I bought a Snark clip-on tuner for it, and that makes re-tuning super quick. Love this instrument. I'm a happy customer!

            Excellent quality for price, true pitch all the way up fretboard, attractive appearance. Inexpensive enough to give as a toy, but well made enough to play real music. The gig bag is a nice bonus (no padding, but good for keeping off dust/carrying the instrument). Allow time for strings to hold pitch: tune them up half a step above pitch, and retune several times a day for a few days. They will stretch and stay in tune.

                    I ordered Ukulele on behalf on my daughter, soon got an email letting us know that the color we pick is out of order. I exchange email with Zachary Foster several times on exchanging for a similar product or the same product with a different color. Zachary answered my email very fast every time, and put our order on a second day shipping. We got that beautiful light blue Ukulele soon. Both my daughter and I are very happy with the product and want to say thank you to Zachary!

                    This is a fun little instrument. For the price I paid it's a pretty good value. The gig bag straight up sucks, but that's ok. There is no padding at all, it's just a vinyl cover. It's color matched to the uke which is kind of cute. It requires frequent tuning, even after the strings have broken in for a couple weeks. However, every time I pick up a guitar, the first thing I do is tune it so what's the difference? I guess I haven't played it for an hour straight to see if it goes way out of tune while playing, but it's tunability seems really reasonable to me. It seems like the people who complain about the cheap ukes not staying in tune just don't understand nylon strings and maybe don't have experience with other instruments. Tough to say, but as a veteran stringed instrument player, I say this thing is just fine for the money I spent, if you want to start exploring the world of ukulele.

                      Comments about Mahalo U-30 Painted Soprano Ukulele:

                      It is a practical way to see if a person is interested in learning to play the ukulele. I bought it as a gift for a three year old.

                      I play a guitar and see where this would be something fun and portable to take on long road trips in a car. I tuned it every day to get the strings stretched out and enjoyed how easy it was to play so I might be getting one for myself soon
