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.

Comments about Mahalo U-30 Painted Soprano Ukulele:

I love how it looks, feels and sounds too. Very affordable if you're looking to give a starter ukulele to someone. One thing was noticeable is the constant tuning. It was also hard to tune it the first time. Overall, a great choice for beginners.

      An experienced Uke player; concert & tenors w/electronics for stage. Bought this beautiful white soprano for the beach & boat---gold tuning pegs with dolphin backs! After 3 frustrating days with slipping tuning...on Day #4 it stays in tune! Have a clip-on tuner handy! Nice mellow tone unlike many tinny sopranos. Lotsa fun on the cheap...easy to learn! Trust your Uncle pete!

        Comments about Mahalo U-30 Painted Soprano Ukulele:

        I was hesitant to order an instrument online, but I was pleasantly surprised. Not only did my ukulele arrive faster than expected, it also had very adequate packaging and had not been damaged at all in shipping. After the first three days, it has held tune very well. It is easy to tune.
        The tone quality is the worst part, and I know that I will upgrade to a more expensive ukulele as soon as I have the money. It is perfect for someone starting out. The light blue is a pleasing color and fits the case well. The strings seem sturdy, and I have had no problems with them. This uke was much better than I expected for the price. I recommend.

                  Comments about Mahalo U-30 Painted Soprano Ukulele:

                  I purchased 6 of these ukes as Christmas gifts for family members who range in age from 5 to 98. Everyone was very happy especially my 98 year old father in law who first played a uke in 1925 !
                  The tuning issue is string related. The original strings stretch a lot so the uke won't stay in tune very long at first. The sound is quite good for an entry level instrument and the smile factor is great!
