This is a fun ukulele to own and play. It is great for anyone that travels frequently and needs a very small instrument that can fit in luggage or overhead bins. Ukuleles are small to begin with, but this uke is easy to fit in a large briefcase, backpack, or a duffle bag with room to spare, so anyone that needs their fix of uke magic can still fit a few changes of clothes and a toothbrush in there. It plays very easily, and sounds like a good uke should, and weighs next to nothing.


The diminished body depth does not appear to hamper the tone in any noticeable fashion - it still has a bright, smooth jangled attack, with decent volume. It would be nice if this included a simple pickup system, but then again, most travelers that want to take a non concert-sized uke with them are probably just taking it to practice in a hotel room, not to gig with. And for this purpose, the sounds are great.


This ukulele is fun! I've had a lot of comments on it because of its size. It certainly offers a good sound and playability for a reasonable price. I've had a lot of fun playing mine, and putting it in my backpack on outdoor hikes to jam by the campfire. It has a good enough sound that I can still teach lessons with it. All in all, a good purchase that I would recommend for anyone that is looking for a good ukulele to have fun with.
