There are many cheap starter ukuleles that can be bought for kids if they are starting to learn to play. This review looks at the Mahalo U30G ukulele that comes in a range of colours. The colours certainly make them attractive to kids.
Trey (photo) who is 12 years old has written this review of the yellow Mahalo U30G he has been playing recently. He said, “It’s hard to keep it in tune, even after playing it for a couple of months. It doesn’t sound very loud, maybe this is because the strings are cheap ones. A good set of strings may improve the volume. But if you are going to buy a new set of strings you may be better off getting a better ukulele. It is still in one piece after eight weeks of playing, and no parts have fallen off. It does come with a bag to store it in.”
If you want to buy one it is going to cost you about $40 NZ.
Ukulele 4 Kids and Trey suggests buying a Makala Dolphin as your first ukulele might be the better ukulele to start with. Click here to read about the Makala Dolphin ukulele.
