Lazy Ukulele Review
Okay, i’m going to be reviewing the first ukulele I purchased.
I bought it almost a year ago from a local music shop for about £25, as I had been wanting to buy one for a while, and the shop only sold this brand and model of ukulele. From the sticker on the inside, it would appear to be a soprano “Lazy Ukulele”. Having not seen any others from the same manufacturer, I would assume this is simply a cheap-to-make beginner’s ukulele.
Despite the small price and unrecognised brand name, it is actually a pretty good uke. Nothing to consider buying if you have others of course, but good for those wondering whether the ukulele would be a suitable instrument for them to play. It actually holds a tune really well, as I have to tune this a lot less than my other, slightly more expensive uke.
The only change I have really made to it since originally purchasing it was to change the strings to some others I ordered from the internet, which weren’t exactly expensive, and gave it a much nicer tone.
The uke has travelled with me on various occasions, both around the country and overseas, and has served me well in a few performing arts projects at school.
I would recommend this particular ukulele to anybody who would like to experiment with playing the ukulele, as it offers a lot in respect to it’s small price.
I reckon it will continue to perform well for me (and anybody else who purchases one) until I can buy a more expensive ukulele.
