This Kala ukulele is one of my favorites because of the way it's built. I have used many and this is by far my favorite soprano ukulele on Amazon. It feels sturdy, it holds it's tune (once it's been broken in a bit) and it won't get dinged or bent if it gets dropped by little hands. I really love the saturation of the paint. It pops out from the rest which helps young learners get excited about playing. Anything that encourages them to pick up their instrument is a good thing. The only thing I wish it had was a peg so you can wear a strap. If you are interested in playing standing up, or in front of a crowd, you might want to consider this ukulele. It is larger, it has a built in tuner and it can be plugged into an amp.
If you are considering getting the super fun, brightly colored, Kala Soprano listed above, please also consider purchasing a clip-on tuner, a hard case (or a soft case) and a ukulele hanger for the wall and a music stand, and some soft felt picksThe case will keep the uke safe when it's being toted around. However, once back at home, I recommend always keeping your instrument out of its case. You are 100 percent more likely to play it if you can see it! The music stand will ensure that there is an organized place to keep your sheet music where it won't get lost in the shuffle, and you won't have to look down on your lap or strain your neck to read off a flat table surface. When you're not practicing, or jamming with your friends, you can hang your pretty instrument on the wall. Instruments make the best wall art!
