Cheap ukuleles: Buy ukulele

4 Nov
When people first decide to learn the ukulele, one of the first things they do is search on internet for an ukulele. In most cases they jump in and buy a cheap ukulele to see if they will actually like it. There are also those who do a little bit of searching and try to find out what's good. Unfortunately, Amazon and Ebay make purchasing a cheap ukulele very easy. 

The problem with buying a cheap ukulele is that it will never sound good. Even if you get good at playing it. Decent ukuleles can be found for around $35 to $50, but should also be "setup" to make sure that they sound good. For those who are a little more serious, you should think about buying an ukulele above the $60 dollar mark and into the hundreds.

However, you should realize that if you stay with the ukulele you will most likely outgrow your cheap ukulele and have to buy another one. It's not necessarily a bad thing, as you will have an extra to take with you to the beach.

So if you are planning to buy ukulele then I recommend that you do your research. Check out UkuleleUnderground, a forum with a lot of experienced ukulele players and see what they recommend. It might save you a lot in the long run.
