The uke is sturdy, produces a good sound and was delivered to me well. I am very happy with it as a beginner!
As a complete beginner thrilled with my Uke. Took advice from Duke of Uke and they were brilliant and when there was a problem on order they got on it straight away. Slowly mastering cords but my Uke is great excellent quality easy to handle and great fun! Can’t praise Duke of Uke enough
