- In which country was it made? (USA, Japan, Mexico, France ...)
Probably in china


- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
Nothing wrong with that. But if you're used to playing the guitar, it is a bit lost with cete instrument

- Do you get easily a good sound ...?
This is unfortunately a disaster. The instrument goes out of tune instantly. So that the ukulele is unplayable. So a decorative object.


- Are they suitable for your style of music?
Yes, it was conveindrait if the note.
Edit previous message ------------- ---------------
Actually tighten a bit mechanical, it holds a little over the note.


I no longer used because it désacorde all the time

See in other reviews ...


It is trslger and we dare not play it seems as fragile! The good sound is hard to be trs, and the holding of beautiful agreement (irony ^ ^) does not help ...


The sound is horrible! It is virtually unusable as the sounds are ugly. It will be sold under another brand in a Toy Club that this does not m'tonnerai ...


I have this ukull for 3 hours and I will try to sell it as it is unusable! Impossible to make a deal that sounds (no no it's not because of my fingers)!
I will try to sell it to buy me a less "toy".
I do not really do the board!

For CHARACTERISTICS, see other reviews. Otherwise, soprano ukull 4 chord (G, C, E, A) ... China no doubt.


As a guitarist, I wanted to test and not get into major purchases, in an order I took the instrument 15.

- The handle: I find it enjoyable even if a little bit of lime at the frets could not hurt (not a cup ...). Otherwise, it feels no ESG playing!
Just the nut that does put a rush ... but it looks like a pose a problem in the game

- The mcaniques: then the ok, it's crap. But personally, I find a con (see Previous opinion) to try an instrument without 15 "quibble" a few minutes. Indeed, mcaniques are rotten to be a dsaccorde beginners ... all the time. BUT ... yes there is a BUT, I play a night and taking a screwdriver, things are RULES. Well ok, not fantastic but has become a RULES is alone and all is well with APRS. Do not judge too quickly ...

- Question n n: changing the strings directly (I'm not the only say). I come now to replace them with Martin's (2.7 game, taking in two directly) and it's much better! Aside from a, well ... it sounds ok but 15 sounds good.


The soprano's 15 ukull what. Audible, the costs but not ugly ear warned hear it's not the quality. 15 ... but frankly have to do it!


Bought to test, I must say that although this instrument j'apprcie. 15, trs pretty, finishing more than respectable. At worst, it will serve as dco .. DGIG it an air of polynsie I find!

I advice to non-musicians beginners because it could put off some novice. on the other hand, a guitarist will find his account. You just love to tame and make something "good" of an instrument a little cheap.

Change would make this instrument mcaniques trs fun ... count 9 15 something decent and 30, you will have a ukull "not bad".

ps: 7 / 10 for 15 + for a change of strings, you have something much fun!

Does everything said.


Very practical, it fits in a pocket. good even when not, but its size can take it anywhere.


It sounds pretty good, considering its price


I'll just say that for the price, it is very well, it allowed me to spend some time trs with my friends, it still follows me everywhere, that a is in progress, on a trip or evening e. TRS is a good buy that I would do without hsitation.

All t adj said.
Personally I find it beautiful.
Think mcanique closer, but that's all I had to do.


The handle is plutt enjoyable. To Access in acute, no problem, even if I never play on frets Most recent internship.
I against evil by many to have on hand when I play, but the problem is not related in MODEL but ukull gnral. I do not know how to keep well trs (at the same time I am a novice).


It comes in sound the only ngatif this little instrument.
With the strings of origin, the sound is really horrible. One has the impression that everything you play is wrong. But being aware of this, I bought a set of strings Martin (who are also not prvu for tuning in LAECs but even make it when trs), and changing strings, it seems to play with a different instrument, the sound becomes enjoyable trs.


I use it for two months now, and I am fully satisfied.
To really feel like playing the ukull and not a toy, change the strings, but even the less at Thomann (2.90 play by Martin) are the case.
I did not try MODEL ago. I ordered it by chance, helping the price, and I am fully satisfied!
The ratio quality price is excellent: 14.90, it's really amazing! Same by adding 2.90 for a set of string, you get to have a beautiful instrument that sounds good for 17.80! Thomann is unbeatable!
With experience, I would do actually this choice. You can go there with closed eyes!

This pretty little instrument was manufactured in China. (Manufacturing treats)
Ukull of 12 frets


The handle is quite pleasant (if slightly kinds frets of the neck and the left hand assaults you think has the files!)
Access to acute seems feasible ... but it is not the purpose of a ukull.
Ergonomics are good trs (height and weight standard).

Reception of this little craft a sound correct .. changing the strings you get a better sound (more precision in the sound ...)


This suits me perfectly ukull for the use I made (repeat decale of the greatest rock'n'roll tracks ^)


I use it for over a week.
"It is an instrument that sounds good and finished correctly (as often with Harley Benton, despite what the many detractors of the brand ...)
"I try to effect a ukull before acquiring one there, it was a tenson it seems to me (29.90) and I just tell you that it is much better bill!
The quality-price ratio is incredible for an instrument was 14 ... and not in a jou plastoc 'thomann thank you!
I do it again this choice with his eyes closed!

Soprano ukulele 4 string C tuning.

- In what country he t made in China, factory to thomann (MusicStore German)
- How many frets, what kind of microphone? 12 frets. acoustic ukulele.
- Price: 15


- Access in acute (dernires freight) is it easy? Yes, however the treble no longer be totally accurate ds s'loigne Premire of three or four boxes.

- Gets it easy to sound good? very easy.


- Appropriate are your style of music? for all styles, a nice aspect to the ukulele is to arrange the songs at all prvues for this instrument.


I bought this ukulele is a small time dja (TRS has also aged well). I did not want to play and fun discovering the instrument (very apprci by dja ... beatles in the 60's!).

I bought this ukulele 15 and I am not of. I learned to play with and even if today I acquired a GEWA BRUKO 6 (90), I confess that I did not throw my harley benton provided. On the contrary I always play with as much pleasure even if the difference in quality with the GEWA is not a doubt.

Overall, this is an excellent tool to begin discovering and learning the ukulele. it is clear that the ratio price quality is perfect. you'll no doubt your 15 and can be sure you will discover a new passion for this wonderful instrument.


- Quality over price
- Its okay trs
- Sober aesthetic and friendly (I dcor and personalis later)
- Ergonomics also correct (always keeping in mind the price of course.)

I try other ukuleles 10.20 and those rating it 30 or more are not really 2ou3X better! The differences comencent srieusement be felt around the 100 but, recess, buy 100 a ukulele to start when you do not know yet if it will please us ... it's a bit risky.

Please note however, I have given many people a few lessons, I was playing on harley benton, and as these people taient safe to have got hooked and took the instrument, their first purchases were the GEWA BRUKO 6 because they thought long term.

finishes do-it-same!
- Tighten the clfs to avoid a dsaccordage too fast.
- Change the strings ======> standard difference! (With for example DADDARIO J65 ukulele)
- Please note however, by replacing the strings, I had to file the location of the cord (C)
level of the bridge.
- Bridge, which is also dcolle easily. do not try tuning one or two
tone above the original (C)
- If the frets are too wide and the handle and you dpassent "rap" fingers when the dplacez along the handle, rub them with lightweight paper-glass.

All these dtails on the finish does not take much time. Once couraging, you are a super ukull to Get You Started !!!!!

China made a ukulele with a rotten finish (worth the price).
The bridge apt twice (well he dcoll), so I glued properly with wood glue.

We must strengthen it if cls dsaccorde in less than 5 minutes.


It is incredibly lightweight, the handle is rather enjoyable, for the sound is not against the Almighty.


Considering the price I did not expect great sound and I was right!
It is rather mdiocre but we know why ;-)


I bought this ukulele by whim rather than by need.
Indeed, when I saw the price (15) I told myself that I did not take many risks.

But then it's more of a good object dco a real instrument!
We can play with occasionally, but that's all.
"Real" ukulele players, flee it!

Attention, considering the price it's not a scam but that is a true ...

Certainly made of mahogany asie.Tout (after the manufacturer) .12 boxes.
The finish is quite rough, no frills, but is very correcte.Les joints are clean and polish well fait.Il there inside her is neglected.


I want to say it is the only ukulele I played, I'm not an expert on the subject ...
Ja he walks and he does not sound too bad (it is legitimate to ask questions when you see the price!). I find it not rude to use.


The sound is probably correct.Il maque body and sounds a bit plastic but for the price you can not expect to be some improvements mieux.Peut arange the sound a bit like changing the strings (the original ones seem particularly flexible) and the plastic nut.


If like me you want a ukulele for fun ocasionellement and you do not want to ruin it is the product ideal.On a lot for his money, despite the ridiculous price it is an intrument works and you are utilisable.Si meter you serious about this intrument better to take another product.
