Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Simply amazing"
Overall: I've been playing uke for about 3 years now and I always used cheaper ukuleles. I thought it was finally time to treat myself and get the ukulele I deserved. Not only did the payment plan provide me with the opportunity to have this instrument but zzounds got it to me in 2 days! When I opened it I immediately started to check it for flaws, but it had none. The sound is great (I always wanted a uke made from that legendary koa wood). The intonation is even better, no fret buzz as I was used to even with lower end lanikai products(it even comes equipped with Aquila strings)! The instrument is a beautiful as it looks in the pictures with not a piece out of place (I see you get what you pay for)! Not to mention the on-board tuner is priceless. Also I plugged it into my interface of my computer and ran it through Garageband and added some effects and it sounded better than I hoped for. It truly is everything I need. Now all I need is a hard case so I can make sure I'll have it forever. I can't even see myself needing another uke...ever. Long story short, buy it, and most importantly buy it from here-its about 80-90 dollars cheaper than other BIG online music stores.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Excellent ukulele for any level of player"
Overall: I was just starting out, and wanted to buy something that I wouldn't regret buying when I became a decent player, and I actually paid the full price (before it was reduced) - which I do not regret in the slightest. It was/is totally worth it. The intonation is excellent, and the tuners / electronics / fretting / workmanship are top notch. I am docking the quality rating a half star for two very minor issues: 1) the plastic electronics box had a tendency to buzz on certain notes. I took it out (removes quite easily via screws) and saw that the plastic box had seams which were barely touching in a couple spots. I wedged a couple of small pieces of foam rubber where the buzz points were and poof, no more buzz. 2) there were a few teeny rough spots around the edges of the piping. A few touches with some very fine wet-dry sand paper (the kind you would use for a glossy finish) and the roughness was gone. These two mods rendered the unit absolutely perfect in every way. I LOVE how it stays in tune all the time!
Style of Music: All styles, but mostly rock / jam

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
