Attractive and different for a wood body single cone resonator Ukulele (Harley Benton - Kahuna CLU-36t)

By Lardy Fatboy, 09/03/2019
It's VERY light for a resonator Ukulele, and quite small for a Tenor with a 42cm scale length, but it does have a very chunky neck and feels very solidly and nicely made. Its quite quiet for a resonator too, I think some spruce tops could match it for volume and quite trebly with a lot of top and not much base (a bit like a spruce top). It's certainly more ordinary, non-resonator Ukulele sounding that the other resonators. I'm thinking if I just heard it without knowing its a resonator Uke I would think it a spruce top? No just had another go and it's less harsh that a spruce top tone

a good first Ukulele if you like the animals pictured (Stagg - Safari Ukulele)

By Lardy Fatboy, 19/02/2019
It has a nato neck and a basswood body and, apart from the bold graphics is the standard budget fair. What I particularly like about mine though is the bright green saddle, nut and tuning buttons. (In case you are wondering about the Eyes, it is a label in the sound hole that you have to line up to get the eye effect)

It comes in quite high for budget pricing and does have that little bit of extra quality to justify that. The decal finish is good, the neck is straight and the action is quite low. It sounds ok, is quite nice to play and would be a good first Ukulele if you like the animals pictured

If you need a "Strat" Ukulele... (Stagg - EUK S)

By Lardy Fatboy, 18/02/2019
They are Concert size and come in either Black or Sunburst, (I got the Black one). They have active under saddle pickups, volume, bass and treble slider controls a quarter inch main jacksocker on the side and a 3.5mm input and output jack socket on the back (this is not a good design feature because if you use them the plug digs into you when you play).

I think the build quality, (apart from the rear sockets), is excellent with the whole neck assembly being particularly good. I also think this is the most "Stratocaster" looking Ukulele commercially available, though I don't think the Les Paul version looks particularly Les Paulish

As the publicity shots show they come with fairly heavy black strings. I have replaced the strings on mine with lighter Ko'Aloha Golds, partly because I prefer the lighter string and partly because I think the gold on black looks good.

Tone wise its an electric Ukulele so a lot depends on how you amplify it but remember its not going to sound like a "Strat" (without a lot of effects). It isn't entirely silent when un-amplified but it only makes enough noise to annoy the person sitting next to you
