jba's review

By jba, 19/04/2008
Soprano ukulele is a shuffled wood and plastic (plastic crate mold, wooden table, wooden handle, plastic button, etc. ...), short, I notice the BPS previous ones ...
Many colors, mine is natural finish, which is quite beautiful in its style. It also seems robust trs ... and little more, its shape allows it to put up anywhere, floor or table.
It is the small sr ERRF the Fluke ukulele concert form size even more curious.
I put an 8, it is not koa either.

UTILIZATION

The neck is perfect. Its square shape and the head droutent dpart but APRS 2 minutes you realize that all agreements of uke trs trs pass well, and that can be m I slide the 5 / 6 frets without forcing, thanks a touch trsrgulire trs and action really low for a uke.
There is little prs Drout also play up all the uke, and calls trs be tight against the body. The balance is otherwise impeccable Unlike other ukes, no risk of tendinitis by trying to play the 5th fret barre chords.
It is perfectly rgl sr ds departure. Holding agreement is incredible (I grant, if ever) and the strings do not wear out. It is likely, through manufacturing, all the flea that you find or play sound exactly the same fawn.
The ease of play is his strong point. A 10 without hsitation.

SOUNDS

The flea is certainly not the most wooden ukes (and for good reason) but it is uke trs surprise: the sound is clear, Dfine, everything sounds, which are the plays mdiator or fingers. Trs well equilibrated frquences are all audible and neat. Compare what I had on hand (an Antonio Carvalho koa I dressed up in bone nut) the sound is a little less round, but much better Dfine.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for four months.
Tired of my uke that did not agree and, not curling, an action called trs high and thus tiring the wrist, I was looking for a uke easy to play and with a good performance agreement. .. in short, the flea.
J'tais quite skeptical dpart by PROCD manufacturing compared to the price that I found quite lev instrument .. but I must say that I quickly reassured t trs.
I tried a few ukes in the range 30/150 euros, have possd few. I never tried to high-end instruments, and for now the flea fulfills my needs and expectations.
I consider all of the same price a few lev. In my opinion, a hundred euros would be more reasonable.
I would do without this choice problem, however I wish the flea connatre over tt for not having bought ukes mdiocres dcorent Now that my walls and I give from time to time friends.

Cactus Deville's review

By Cactus Deville, 23/10/2007
Ukulele soprano (the smallest size and, for purists, the only true ukulele) manufactured in the United States, cash, key and frets, plastic handle, and I think Saddle wooden table (picea?).
Nickel finish.

UTILIZATION

I agree with the view Previous. Despite its "toy" it is indeed a vritable instrument.
The handle is a MODEL of its kind, super comfortable and enjoyable to play, whether strumming or picking.
I was afraid that the plastic button is dsagrable, but not at all.
Unlike many low-end ukulele, he has no problem of accuracy, either the top or bottom of the inning.
Above all, it sounds! The sound is equilibrated with a beautiful dynamic
and power (be careful, it's not a jumbo either, eh).

SOUNDS

Unlike what one might think, we can all play on this instrument.
Some are stunning virtuosos, notament him


Without prtendre one day reach his level, you can really have fun with this little uke.

OVERALL OPINION

I got the ukulele a few months ago. As a guitarist, the handling of the instrument is easy.
The small size of the machine and the position of the strings (the two grave in the center, with acute extrmits) is Drout at beginners but you get done quickly. Trs soon as we assimilate the basic chords (if you know how to do a r guitar, you can do a soil on a ukulele :-) and you can quickly get something.
What I love about this instrument is its size: it can take anywhere, we can play anywhere (car, toilet, sprawled in front of the table tl) and then also c t cute toy "j'me srieux not take." Guaranteed success with the kids!
For those who want to get started, do not buy the ukulele 40 euros you can find in music stores gnralistes (or 20 euros on the net), there are chances that it will be unplayable and / or false. Such a purchase can you dgoter the uke.
Sr is a 149 Euros the Flea rating: http://www.ukulele.de/menu/index.html stepfather is a cheap but it is the assurance of having a musical instrument worthy of the name, not something that unplayable months in a closet.
Sr is, I do it again this election, and twice a plutt!

Uke nice

By Reiep, 10/09/2012
Mine is the version with mahogany table, walnut handle and key in "hardwood" (I do not know the translation) + Aquila strings.
The plastic back is certainly no very noble, but it has one big advantage: it is solid! It can be a little stroll anywhere without too much fear. The bottom is flat, you can ask the standing practice.

UTILIZATION

Very pleasant to use, it holds well in the arms and is light. I have not played a lot of ukulele, mainly lower range, but it is clearly the more enjoyable. Only Kiwaya competed, but the handle me least favorite.
Adjusting wrenches are very hard on the one hand it is well to avoid variations in tuning, on the other hand for fine adjustment is not always obvious, which is fortunately very rare because good design and good strings. No problems freight / buzz / etc.

SOUNDS

The projection of sound is impressive, it is the uke "stronger" I had the opportunity to play. The sound is clear and powerful, I play mostly at parties with friends, he gets along well from the screams of people well soaked.

OVERALL OPINION

Overall a very good ukulele. Kiwaya face that I could play there is little behind, but it was not the same range either.
Difficult to find something I do not, I love her look against its strength and foremost. This is the kind of uke mat that sounds good too.
