Comments about Carlo Robelli CUK32BN Tenor Ukulele:

The best way to rate any product is to compare it to claims made in its product description. Here goes:

Claim 1: "pumps out a lot of sound" - NOT TRUE - It has very low volume.

Claim 2: "low action" - TRUE - This Uke is easy to fret.

Claim 3: Made with "solid catalpa top, back and sides" - NOT TRUE - The top and back may be solid but the sides are made of plywood (vertical grain inside & horizontal grain outside).

Claim 4: "tone that is bright, yet warm" - NOT TRUE - This a subjective opinion, but muted, dull and thin might be a better description.

Claim 5: die-cast tuning machines (complete this attractive package) - TRUE the machines are the best part of this ukulele.

Claim 6: (.....attractive package)-- NOT TRUE - The neck is gouged in three places. The finish is rough and uneven and the plywood sides appear to be delaminating.

Comments about Carlo Robelli CUK32BN Tenor Ukulele:

I have owned a Robelli ES-175 copy jazz guitar since 1976 and have always considered this Ash house-brand to be a good value for the price.

I ordered a CUK32 Tenor Uke to keep as an office novelty, for those of us here who play and need a daytime music fix of some kind. It tunes up fine and plays well, and has a nice deep mahogany color which reminds me of my old Guild M20. The wood pores don't have much filler, but that's the tradeoff on an affordable uke.

The geared tuning pegs make the instrument somewhat top-heavy. In playing position, it needs to be supported. When laid on its back, it tends to tip towards the pegbox. Disastrous when placed at the edge of a table or desk. Also, a couple of fret edges are a little blunt, but nothing a clever dude with a corner file & some patience can't adjust.

I have a pricier uke I keep at home, so this is the "fun" one I'll use in ensemble rehearsal (saving the Big Money instrument for performance night), and to keep at work for everyone to pick up and plunk at. You'd be surprised what that does for office morale.
