Bought this and a Hricane ukulele as reviews on Amazon and YouTube were positive. I am a beginner and wanted to learn the ukulele with my 6 yo daughter during lockdown, so by no means an expert, but this ukulele sounds lovely and stays in tune. The Hricane did not and required constant tuning which got really annoying, and didn't sound nearly as nice. Happy to recommend this ukulele. Price is also reasonable (cheaper than the Hricane incidently).
