Got this little Ukelele online for my 13 year old daughter. She LOVES it! She mentioned it's nice to play and has inspired her to want to play guitar now! Sometimes it's the little things in life that give some inspiration.

By 

from Pomona, Ca

Pros

  • Aquila Strings
  • Great Sound
  • Well Built

Cons

  • Case

Best Uses

    Comments about Makala Shark Soprano Ukulele:

    Bought for my 13 YO daughter. Her friends started playing at school. This has an amazing sound once tuned. Solid build quality, and great look she picked the green. The only draw back is the so called case / caring bag. It feels like its made with weed blocker material, has a little opening with a not so sturdy velcro closure. If your gonna travel with it, upgrade case.

    Just got mine today

    By 

    from Danvers, MA

    Comments about Makala Shark Soprano Ukulele:

    Uke looks great, came in 5 days (including the weekend) so i'll say the delivery time was fairly quick. My only problem with the product was the case came covered in something absolutely disgusting, not just something i could pass off as water or something that happened in the handling, the box and uke are fine, but it is like someone dropped the case in mud before they packed it away. Disgusting.
