Description

I bought an entry-level Mahalo UG30 for my wife to begin on, and it's proven a good buy, really coming alive with the usual upgrade to Aquila strings. I did a little refining work on the nut (I've played guitar for many years, so I can do basic setups), and that's all it's needed. It certainly isn't a toy, despite the price point and minor cosmetic finish issues. A neighbour we play with has the same model and it's done him good service for the past year or so, though he'll be looking to upgrade soon and has the funds go go considerably upmarket if he wants.

It chips very easily and is lightweight, but I’d expect this from most sopranos. I’ve been taking good care of it though. 8/10. After 10 minutes of playing it was out of tune. After 3 more tunings and tightening the machine heads twice I lost patience and fit it snugly into its complimentary hard case and slid in under my bed- almost embarrassed of it.

Despite being a ‘cheap soprano by Mahalo’ as he’s been described, there is not much difference in the playing and sound quality compared to more expensive ukes. I’ve spoken to ukulele masters and they’ve agreed with me. Eb Clarinet Reeds

Eb clarinet reeds are also suitable for use with C-Lyons or Nuvo Clarineo plastic clarinets.



When you’re sitting down it’s hard to avoid getting spiked in the groin. Which isn’t an experience I enjoy (and anyone who tells you I do enjoy it and that I regularly pay for exactly that experience is lying). Their bright colours and low price tag mean that they are very popular with schools and ukulele groups. They’re not the world’s greatest uke by any means but, considering the price, it’s a decent ukulele. The Mahalo is often the choice for new ukers just getting started with the ukulele.

Afterthoughts: My first excursion into the Alaskan wilderness was a hike to Bird Creek and the incredibly beautiful super secret waterfall. There was a threat of bear but no sightings by us. The uke was out of tune almost immediately but I persevered. I probably wouldn’t buy another Mahalo for hiking but it’s still nice for storytime.

He’s even had his photo in The NME! He’s not a shy uke, and I’m not a jealous guy…he has been played live by Robert Newman (of Newman & Baddiel fame!), Jens Lekman and Erlend Øye (from Kings Of Convenience).

He wasn’t an expensive uke, cost me under 60 quid (complete with what is now a well worn, battered and bruised hard case) but with just a little tweaking he has proven to be invaluable. Firstly I had the saddle filed down under the “A” string to sort out an intonation problem (that only the luthier who could hear!). Giving the screws on the tuning pegs a little quarter turn sorted out any tuning/slipping difficulties there may have been, (I have to do this once every few months) and a nice set of Aquila strings really brought him to life. The Mahalo ukulele range has grown a lot over the last few years. They are still best known for the basic colourful soprano size ukuleles, Maybe quality control has improved, maybe these came from a particular factory (I don't know if this applies to Mahalo, but with other instruments that are ostensibly identical models, there are distinct differences between some that are contracted out to different factories), or maybe the shop I used (where the staff seem to know a fair bit about ukes) weeds the bad 'uns out, though while chatting, the guy who served me claimed they'd had no problems, and they sell a lot locally.

We use individual string saddles to allow for optimum string spacing for the best feel and performance. The bridge saddles have individually adjustable intonation screws as well as standard height adjustment. Woodwind instrument stands

Woodwind instrument stands are an essential whatever instrument you buy. Here at Heritage Music we sell a range of stands, including stands for flute, oboe, clarinet and saxophone. Never leave an instrument unattended on the floor or on a bed – for the price of an instrument stand it could save a far more expensive repair or even the cost of a new instrument.

find the ukulele losing its tuning regularly. So try to buy a Mahalo with geared tuners if you can! This may not sound like a fantastic Uke ‘looks bad’ sounds bad and is generally very unreliable but it had one tremendously redeeming quality, one that I did not expect at all. A social one. Telecaster and Les Paul style ukuleles. This was an idea originally done by Kiwaya and their K-Wave ukuleles, which were of better quality. Sadly theI think the problem with any of these lower-end ukes (and indeed most intruments) isn't necessarily that they're all terrible, but that the Friday-afternoon/Monday-morning jobs really are stinkers (they exist among more expensive models as well, of course), so I'd never buy one online unless I was braced for disappointment and the prospect of some woodwork. It’s my first ukulele and I’m happy with it any way it comes. It’s a great ukulele in my opinion. 8/10. Woodwind instrument mouthpiece caps, ligatures and accessories

Woodwind instrument mouthpiece caps, ligatures and accessories are all essentials for playing a clarinet or saxophone. Different ligatures have a marked effect on the feel and tone of the instrument while a mouthpiece cap protects and preserves the reeds.

So - some nice looks, but sadly let down with the finish and a fundamental error in the build. How does that translate into playing it?
