And our uke review team had scrutinized the previously said parts individually; to ensure your satisfaction. So, let us pitch in deep to know more detail about our selected ukuleles.
1. Lohanu Soprano Ukulele Review
The first thing about this uke is its head part. In this part, we checked the materials, that has used for sustaining the ukulele tune. And Lohanu used a first-class chrome plate for tuner pegs and Sapele wood for the head part. For that reason, we felt a comfy sound after every strum.
The next thing about the uke is -its neck part. And all the materials of this part were representing a sign of quality. As a part of a class, the rosewood fingerboard and silver frets have confirmed a flexible playing for this reason.
Finally, we had observed the body part. So, based on our observation, the body has made from Sapele wood for crispy sound. And when we were searching for the reason behind this incredible sound, found a rosewood bridge, and a real bone saddle. Oh yes!! We forgot to mention the “nut part.” It has also made from the bone.
In a nutshell, the total instrument is perfect for small fingered adults and kids.
- Free lessons.
- Straps, digital tuner.
- Extra strings.
- Extra picks.
- A padded gig bag.
- Good sound.
- No buzz sounds.
- Sweet intonation.
- We did not like the neck joining part, though it is sturdy.
2. Kala KA-15S Mahogany Soprano Ukulele Review
A cute and straightforward ukulele we have got for this second position. The head part of this tiny ukulele has made from mahogany wood. Over the forest, there are four different tuner pegs. All these are geared tuners.
Geared tuners are best for consistent note. This means, your string can grab the desired note till you change. Like the head part, we observed a “satin finish” in the back part of the neck. And in the front section, we experienced a rosewood fingerboard.
The fingerboard has brass made frets, though they are perfect for little fingered guy/girls. But we literally liked the sound of each note and chords. This is because of the Mahogany body. The mahogany body has enough flexibility.
A craftsman can resize the wood according to the desired sound. For example, K-15 can produce dark sound. On the other hand, k-15s blk is perfect for a warm tone. So, we recommend this for kids and travelers.
- The Saddle has made from real bone.
- Rosewood bridge.
- Straps and Aquila strings.
- Nylon gig bag.
- DVD lessons.
- The gig bag could be better.
3. Donner Soprano Ukulele Review
We picked this third ukulele for its raw sound. It was never easy for us to choose because music is the base thing at the end. And we are going to write about “donner uke sound” from now.
So first comes the head part. This part has made from pure mahogany wood. Over the wood, we have seen four chrome-plated tuner pegs. As you know that -chrome plates have enough flexibility than any other tuner.
The reason behind this tuning flexibility is its grabbing power. “what is the grabbing power?” it is like- you can tune according to your desired note. And it will sustain the notes. We are not saying that the tuner pegs are enough to hold your tune.
There are two more factors in this uke. And they are; neck and body part. In the neck, we saw the rosewood fingerboard and brass-made frets. These features will provide you a soothing intonation and buzz-free sound.
For keeping the smooth sound inline, the manufacturer used a solid mahogany body. Inside this mahogany body, we saw a rosewood bridge. On the bridge, there is a real bone saddle. Aggregately, the soundhole provided us a futuristic sound experience.
Concisely, this soprano uke is perfect for adult and ten years old kid.
- Carbon nylon strings.
- Position marking in frets.
- A nylon gig bag.
- Clip-on tuner.
- Extra strings and pick.
- An instruction manual.
- We did not like the caramel color on a tuner.
4. Ranch Soprano Ukulele Review
Ranch has been winning its ukulele fans from the beginning of its production. That is why they have worldwide acceptance. For finding the reason behind this broad acceptance, we analyzed their uke.
As a result, our team has found that – the head part of this ukulele has a touch of Sapele wood. On the front piece of the forest, there four silver knobs for tuning. These tuner pegs are best for handling the stretch.
For supporting the tuner pegs, there is a sturdy neck. Inside the neck, we experienced two unique things; a rosewood fingerboard and silver frets. And playing over the rosewood and silver frets was really amazing.
Each and every note was decent and pleasant. That is why we focused intensely on the body part at the final stage. The body part has made from Sapele wood and rosewood bridge. Combinedly, these two ingredients provide strong support – to the soundhole.
So, if you are intending for a raw sound, then pick this uke.
- Aquila nylon string.
- A sturdy gig bag.
- Extra picks and strings.
- Instruction manual.
- Raw sound.
- The top part is massive.
5. Kala LTP Soprano Ukulele Review
After the Ranch ukulele, we would like to review a Kala ukulele. This uke has some slight difference than K-15s. And we are going to write about the unique features here.
So, the first thing of this instrument is its tuner. The tuners are open gear. As a result, a uke player gets the flexibility to change the tune. They can even hold the changed tune. Apart from the tuner, there is another crucial factor, which is the neck part.
The neck part has made from mahogany and rosewood. As a legendary producer, Kala did not compromise with the quality in this fingerboard section. Thus, a high-quality brass touch we have seen in all frets.
Likewise, the neck part, we also have seen a quality body. The entire ukulele body has a fresh mahogany wood. No lamination has added in the body part. As a result, we enjoyed a beautiful combination of Rosewood Bridge and bone-made nut.
Now, “Why are we appreciating the bone?’ because a real bone can help the nut and saddle to produce the dark sound. Therefore, the KALA LTP series is better for the novice.
- Tote bag
- Free lesson.
- Instruction manual.
- We don’t prefer this for small fingered guy/girl.
6. Kmise Soprano Ukulele Review
Our personal preference after Kala is -Kmise. “Why are we preferring this uke to you?” For two reasons. And they are; the quality materials, and it is budget-friendly. Yes, this the truth.
While we played the Kmise ukulele, we observed some exciting features. So, the first feature was its head part. In this part, the producer has used a solid mahogany wood and copper gear tuner.
Each tuner has the endurance to hold the string stretch. That is why the producer used a branded string. And the brand is none other than “D-addario.” Like the string brand, the producer has also used walnut wood for the fingerboard.
Inside the fingerboard, we saw the nickel frets. A combination of walnut and nickel can produce a softer sound. And that is why we loved kmise music. Except for the neck part, we have another reason to love the sound.
And that is – the body part. It was made from solid mahogany and walnut bridge. For supporting the bridge, the manufacturer used a high-end plastic for saddle and nuts. Maybe you are thinking of plastic-made saddle and nuts, right?
Don’t worry, the plastic worked like a real bone. That is the reason for this sharp sound. Now, you have known all you need. The choice is yours. Still, we want to clear some point through the pros and cons section.
- We loved the padded gig bag.
- Digital tuner.
- Straps and extra strings.
- The instruction manual and free lessons.
- Good sound.
- The case did not fit well for us.
7. Pomaikai Soprano Ukulele Review
As the meaning of pomaikai is “good luck,” we believe that -this uke review will bring good luck for you.
Now, you can ask how? Well, the answer is; it provides quality materials to their users.
And we are going to write about the quality materials from now. So, first comes the head part; it has made from mahogany wood and chrome-plated tuner.
As a result, a uke player gets a sustainable tone until he/ she changes. For keeping your uke tune consistent, the ukulele has a mahogany-made neck and walnut fingerboard.
Inside the fingerboard, there are silver made frets. And all these frets have designed smoothly to secure a sharp tone. Besides the uke neck part, we have also seen the body part. And the body has made from Mahogany wood and walnut bridge.
Over the bridge, we saw a saddle, which was made from cattle bone. For that reason, Pomakai sounds misty. So, if you have decided to buy a kid-friendly ukulele, then don’t hesitate.
- A nylon gig bag.
- Walnut fingerboard.
- Sturdy binding.
- Cattle bone nut.
- It does not fit with a professional player.
8. Kala MK-S Soprano Ukulele
As an entry-level uke player, everyone wants their first ukulele should be a branded one. That is why we have brought a fantastic Makala soprano instrument for the newbies. Like every Kala uke, it has the same materials, but there are slight differences.
And we are going to tell you that from now. So, the first thing is- the head part. This part has made from solid Mahogany and white color tuner peg. The tuner feels like plastic, but after a continues research, we confirmed that- it was made from copper.
It means a user will tune the uke notes based on their demand. Sounds great, right? As a user, you will surprise if we share a piece of information. And that is, the wood will look better day by day!! Yes, this is the power of pure mahogany wood.
Apart from the influential head part, there is also a well-crafted fingerboard. The fingerboard has made from rosewood and brass frets. As a result, we experienced a soft and musical sound in the end.
Well, this is not the end. There is still one part left, which is; the body part. Inside the Mahogany body, there are rosewood bridge and ox bone saddle. These two combinations ensure a sweet, strumming experience.
- Nice decoration.
- Solid finishing.
- Amazing sound.
- Free lessons.
- Aquila strings.
- This uke is too small.
9. Aklot Soprano Ukulele Review
In our number nine list, we preferred Aklot ukulele for a unique feature. And that is, the uke tune will better day by day. Now, Why the sound will better day by day? Well, it is because of the material.
Materials like mahogany wood have used for top, neck, and body parts. In the top section, we saw a pure copper-made tuner beside the forest. These combinations ensure a clean tone in each strum.
During the strumming, you will feel a soft and robust intonation for a smooth neck. For this smooth neck, the manufacturer used a rosewood fingerboard and silver frets. Combinedly, these wood and silver materials confirm a clear sound.
A clear sound does not always depend on the neck. Instead, it relies on the body. That is why the producer covered this uke body; with mahogany wood. For supporting this wood, there are Rosewood Bridge and rib-made saddle.
We literally have satisfied for the rib and mahogany combination; because it gives the soundhole strong support to produce -a better sound.
- Better sound.
- Extra string and straps.
- Digital tuner. Free lesson.
- An instruction manual.
- Aquila strings.
- We did not like the fret edge because of sharpness.
10. Everjoys Soprano Ukulele Review
This one is totally different from earlier ukuleles. All materials of this uke are different. And we are going to write about the materials here. So first comes -the head part. This part has made from basswood.
Basswood is perfect for a warm sound. A warm sound ukulele is used for pop and Melo rock cover. And that is why this manufacturer has installed the copper tuner. As a result, these tuners can hold the tune for a long time.
Besides the head part power, we also checked the neck part. It has made from solid wood and blackwood. The blackwood fingerboard has silver nickel frets to ensure a soft pitch. So, when you strum or play notes -definitely you will enjoy it.
Your level of joy will enhance if you know the body part detail. And that is: A basswood body covers with a solid bridge for spicing up the sound. On the bridge part, we also saw plastic saddle (we guess). It does not mean – Plastic saddle and nut are wrong. Instead, they can help you to produce a better sound.
- Position marking on frets.
- A sturdy padded gig bag.
- Extra strings and picks.
- A polishing cloth.
- Digital tuner.
- The bag has thin nylon. We thought it would be more substantial.
