The Mitchell Mu-40 is a fantastic entry lever ukulele,and a real steal at this price. It has a very nice satin finish with a nicely shaped a smooth neck. The action is very good and the intonation is excellent for an entry level. You would have to spend 2-3 times as much to get a nicer ukulele and It probably wouldn't be as fun to play. Do yourself a favor and pick up one of these well built instruments. Happy Ukeing!!

I purchased 30 for a classroom. The sound is good, but the frets are sharp and jagged. They have not been filed well. My fingers are torn up, not by playing on a string instrument, but by being sliced by the frets as I was tuning them. Out of 30, two of them seemed to be ok, the other 28 have jagged, sharp frets.

    Comments about Mitchell MU40 Soprano Ukulele:

    The Ukulele itself is a tad bit lighter than the pictures show. Other than that..everything about it is awesome! I was a bit timid to buy it, being that it had no reviews or anything (While the other Uke I was looking at had a ton). But I am so glad I did! It has a really great tone for a cheap uke. It took a little bit to tune it at first, because I've never used a Ukulele before, but since then it has stayed in tune quite nicely. Musicians Friend is awesome, they shipped super fast too. I hope to post a full video review on Youtube sometime soon, as well.

          Comments about Mitchell MU40 Soprano Ukulele:

          Definitely goes out of tune almost every time you play it, but that's pretty standard for beginner's ukes. I would say, if you're torn between multiple inexpensive options for your first or second ukulele, I would recommend choosing this one. Just be prepared to tune it all the time.

                Comments about MU40 Soprano Ukulele - Natural:

                This Ukelele is good sounding for this price. The only complaint I have is that it has to be retuned every time it is picked up. It even goes out of tune while playing it. I know Ukelele's go out of tune quicker than guitars, but I still would expect a little longer. However, it sounds great.

                    I picked up the uke on sale. I was surprised at how well it was made. Its got bracing, bent wood sides, and kerfing. Mitchell may be priced with the cheap stuff, but a notch above them in quality. This is a real instrument.

                        I own several ukuleles and I decided to give the Mitchell a try. Big mistake. The sound is atrocious. Some might say that you get what you pay for, but there are way better choices in terms of quality at this price point. Sorry Mitchell, I wish I could rate it higher but I cringe each time I try it.

                              great finish - great tone - awesome for sitting around the house and having fun with the family. I've read reviews that complain about it staying in tune. initially it was a little issue (very little) but now a month later the strings have stretched nicely and stay in tune very well. give it a chance. if you don't like it some kid near you will :-).
