Wow! This was "the deal of the century". Not only is it high quality in materials, looks, and sound, but it came with all the extras. In the last six weeks I have purchased 3 ukuleles. The first one was a soprano for a child and it was the same price as this one without the extra features. I bought a professional quality tenner one for myself that didn't come with any extras and cost more than double the price of this one. A couple of weeks later my daughter bought a Kalena like this so that we could play together. I liked hers so well that I got one too in hopes I could talk my husband into playing with us. I couldn't be happier with it. I would tell anyone who was looking for a good Uke to check this out. The tone is clear and bright, but not at all cheap or "tinny". While my tenner Uke strings like a classical guitar at the bridge, this one uses a knot system that makes it more like stringing an acoustical guitar. The action is slightly higher than my other one, but I don't mind that. The fact that it comes ready to hook on a strap and has a curved back are also unusual bonuses. If I went to my local music store to buy something comparable I know I would pay a great deal more for what I got in this package. I am sure this was an introductory offer, and I am glad I got in on it. I would do it again.
This is a super bargain. The instrument looked wonderful and has a nice, full tone. It's always a gamble to buy an instrument off the internet and this time I hit the jackpot. I'm very happy. Way to go, Kalena
I love this ukulele, it has good sound, seems well constructed and though I've had the opportunity to play a more expensive one I really prefer this one, so I'm very happy with this purchase!
