Recommended good student Ukuleles:
In order of preference & cost. The cost is a rough ballpark price.
- Cordoba 15-CM $70-100 *This is what we use in class.
- Kala 15-S $50-80
- Fender Concert or Soprano $100-130
- Makala Dolphin $40-50 Soprano
- Ohana CK-10 $50-80
I personally prefer Cordoba or Kala brands. I own both.
You might want to also consider a bundle which would include Ukulele, a bag/case, strap, and tuner. Some also may come with extra strings and/or a basic song book and chord chart.
