    I recently gifted a Kala Waterman to a teenage girl. Not the best sounding instrument, but sturdy. I have a Bonanza and like it a lot. Around $200 for a concert in the HPL, so a little higher in price, but sturdy & fun.

    Not sure what the best is, and I have only a couple weeks on ukuleles.
    So, take my views with a pound of salt.
    My coworker, who got me started, bought a Kala KA tenor and I loved it enough to buy my own, a TEM.
    My wife liked mine enough to buy a Kala cedar top, laminated back and side.
    My coworkers bar buddy liked his Kala KA enough to buy her own TEM.

    I don't know who is the best, but I believe Kalas are decent for the money.
    I've also had pleasant experiences with a Donner soprano and a Enya HPL.

    After some experience with different ukuleles, I did notice that Kalas nuts seem a little narrower than others, which is fine for med to small hands.

    Senior in age, maybe. Not maturity.

    The Fluke is a blast. Its a super ukulele, thank you so much!

    BTW, My buddy, who I mentioned got me started, liked my Fluke so much he bought a tenor in Koa.
