Good for the price - nice first learning

Looks lovely, it obviously isn’t a $$$$ Ukele but for the price it’s not bad. It doesn’t hold its tune very long but that can be expected as it’s new and student grade. Perfect for my son who is learning! Very happy thank you. If you are after something and you can actually play decently I would spend several hundred at least.

Nice little ukulele, strings take some time to stretch but that's normal. It has good machine heads and the hole item is well made. It sounds bright and clear, once strings are set. The wood looks good, and the white edge borders it nice. I will probably just change one string.

Bought on behalf of a friend who wanted to take up playing something 'easy', I'm so impressed with my Artist TC59 that I suggested this. Looks great (a lot better than the sad angle of the one in the photo! Artist guitars please update the photo, it is a really cute instrument in reality!) , nice wood grain materials look great, tuners work well, frets are smooth, action is low and straight! In th e unlikely event my mate doesn't like it, I'll keep it , play it, and hang it on the wall along with my SG, Strat, and TC59!

Student Ukulele for my daughter

By: on 1 January 2022
This ukulele was my first purchase from Artist Guitars and I was pretty amazed by the high quality of this product - especially considering the extraordinary price point. First of all the instrument looks a lot better than the pictures show. It's beautifully crafted and doesn't look cheap at all. But it gets better when you start playing it. It usually stays tuned even though our weather conditions in the subtropics don't really help with that. The sound was unexpected and much fuller than the student ukulele we had before. The sustain is nice and will match other ukuleles at a much higher price point. Most importantly my daughter for whom this instrument was meant loves to play it so much that she actually practices more now than before. And for me that's the best part of this instrument. As we had now two ukuleles in the house my daughter asked me to join her and play with her and so I did. But playing her old instrument while listening to the nice tunes coming out of her Artist ukulele finally led to me ordering the next ukulele from Artist Guitars which will arrive in a few days. All in all I would absolutely recommend this ukulele for anybody who is looking for an instrument for practising and also if you're looking for a bargain instrument for the occasional use or to take on a road trip.

Quite a revelation

I’m a guitarist with a long standing disdain for the ukelele, but I bought this as a Christmas present for my little granddaughter because she loves “helping” me play. It arrived very quickly and I was more than pleasantly surprised at the way it sounds and the way it holds tune. It’s not an expensive one but really quite good..I’ve even knocked out a few tunes on it.

fantastic

the ukulele is a little smaller than i thought it would be but it has great build and feel to it and sounds great i'm only learning and only know a few chords and a couple of songs but it is so much fun walking around the house with it annoying my dog, son and wife, it'll be great to take on camping trips too when i don't have the space to fit a full size guitar in.

Excellent Value!!

This Ukulele sounds and plays better than many others that cost 3 or 4 times as much.

Easy to order, pretty quick delivery and I'm enjoying learning this

Reflections three months later...

A soprano ukulele is meant to project a 'twangy' sound when strummed with less expansive resonance ('ringing sound') than a concert or tenor ukulele - I think that the Artist UKB1 Soprano Ukulele meets that definition and is therefore a solid choice for a student, adult beginner or a more experienced player looking for a travel ukulele. It does 'ring' when fingerpicked and offers a pleasing sound. I own two different Artist ukulele models and both have arrived properly set-up: no buzzes or rattles, level frets, proper string heights and no sharp fret edges. I gave the fretboard a good drink with Dunlop 65 lemon oil on arrival which restored the lustre. E7 chord sounds like an E7 chord should. G Major sounds like a G Major should. D Minor 7 sounds like a D Minor 7 should. I can't say that has been my experience with other 'entry-level' ukuleles costing double the price. Overall, it is a well put together ukulele and one that I would happily gift to a friend. Artist Guitars are also fantastic at resolving any identified issues - excellent customer service. Great stuff Artist Guitars! Keep up the great work!

Exceptional service & great quality

This Ukulele is affordable and heaps better than you get in almost any music store. Most music store have painted terrible wood which chips and simply feels terrible. This natural wood uke doesn't need to hide it's grain & sounds great. I'm glad this is available and I have bought and recommended it to many friends.

UKB1Soprano ukulele

By: on 28 November 2016
<p>This ukulele looks great but sounds horrible. I've heard stretched rubber bands sound better. The playing action is so close to the top fret it rattles. There is no real musical ringing quality sound when you play it. It sounds like a cheap toy. Two of the machine heads were loose and crooked.Even the little QC sticker on the back of the neck was crooked.(Thanks leo)So no, I would not recommend this item.</p> <p><em><strong>Artist Response</strong>: Really sorry to hear about your bad experience with this Uke. We have a 100 Day Free Returns policy and all our instruments are covered by a 3-Year Warranty, so you're more than welcome to return this for exchange or refund. &nbsp;This doesn't sound normal for this model, they are built well and usually play and sound&nbsp;great. &nbsp;It sounds like an issue with this particular&nbsp;Uke.</em></p>
