Sometimes all you need is a second opinion – or at least a different opinion – to lean you one way or the other on an issue!
Here is a collection of ʻukulele reviews I’ve done on products I’ve had pass through my life. Most reviews were initiated by my love for an item. Some items were provided for free for me to try. I’ve tried to disclose all of these for transparency sake. That said, I generally don’t post ʻukulele reviews that are negative. Provided review items that just weren’t up to snuff aren’t on here. Better to pursue the best than avoid the worse, in my opinion.
Beware though! It’s easy to fall into the trap of taking opinions as gospel – especially when the review reflects positively on your preconceived notions. A review is nothing more than that: an opinion. I try to cover all bases here and represent pros and cons in an objective way, but my ʻukulele style is likely to be very different than yours.
Hands-down, the largest and highest quality source of ʻukulele reviews is Barry Maz’s site, Got a Ukulele. How he manages to write so much about so many ʻukuleles is really impressive to me. If you’re in the market, give his site a peek.
