We’re in the process of writing a full Help & Advice section for our website that will guide you through the process of choosing the perfect ukulele to suit your tastes and requirements.
In the meantime if you’re looking for a starter ukulele for Christmas…
…we can’t recommend the Aria AU-1 (pictured opposite) highly enough! At £49.95 it’s the best starter ukulele we’ve tested in nearly 10 years!! Just pipping at the post the long-standing Lanikai LU11 and Kala KA-S models.
With an elegant and traditional hour-glass shape, it comes fully equipped with the ever-popular Aquila strings and has a incredibly full and sweet tone. For the price, it’s absolutely amazing sounding and up there with instruments twice the price.
If you’re thinking of getting one of the cheaper colourful ukuleles, we would strongly urge you to consider this. For the extra £15 you’re getting an instrument that’s immeasurably better in every way.
