Hello few days ago i bought 320 euros ukulele but the servuce from them was awful so i decided to take back my money. So im looking for new uke for 300-400€ (acoustic or elevtro-acoustic). So can you write most beautiful (in sound and looking) ukes that you know? Would be cool if you put link from europe's e-shop. :)

Hi, Have a look at the site for Southern Ukulele Store over in England. They carry a good range of Ukes at all prices. I have bought from them in the past and recieved good service.

I forget what size you wanted. Tenor?

Edit - nvm it was a concert. I'll find you some on there that I PERSONALLY would look into, but I may have different taste.

Here's a few. I know you liked the Kala, so I included a couple of those.

Personally I really like the first Pono, but that's just me.

My suggestion would be either Pono or KoAloha Opio:

Ukumele.de has Koa Pili Koko (KPK) ukuleles in mahogany and beautiful acacia. They are labeled as ukuMele but they're the exact same models as the KPKs.

Which size are you looking for?

Soprano: http://www.ukumele.de/Sopran-Ukulelen/ukuMele-Akazie-Sopran-II::69.html
Concert: http://www.ukumele.de/Concert-Ukulelen/ukuMele-Akazie-Concert-II::70.html
Tenor: http://www.ukumele.de/Tenor-Ukulelen/ukuMele-Akazie-Tenor::66.html

:agree:

KPKs are great and not just for the price. Just great.

Risa's online shop sell a variety of ukuleles apart from their own. I've bought from them with no problems.

+1 for Brueko. I've three of their ukuleles, a soprano, concert and tenor and their great value.

Here's the Risa page with concerts in your price range (and a bit more)

https://www.ukulele.de/shop4/en/en-Concert-Ukuleles?cat=1&next_page=2

Here's Brueko concerts, both in your price range.

I reckon the cherry with arched back will be good. I have a Rosewood one with arched back and it's a beauty. The mahogany will be good too if you want to spend a bit less.

Risa is a very good brand though they are best known for their solid electrics. I don't know about maulao or kok'io. I suspect they are ukuleles that Risa have made for them in the far east and have given them a fake Hawaiian sounding name. If that is the case, I think they will be good as Risa won't want to damage their reputation by selling poor quality instruments at the sort of price you want to pay. As well as having some of their solid electric ukes, I bought one of their budget ones to keep in the car and I am very happy with it. The quality was much better than you generally expect for a 60 Euro ukulele.

I recently bought a Pono AC from SUS in the UK -

I remember that you were looking at a Kala elecro-acoustic before. SUS also has this -

Brüko is made in Germany and well respected - if you like traditional sound. Risa are "made in Europe" (whatever that means). As has been pointed out, they're better known for their solid electric ukes. Koki'o is the import brand made for Risa in the far east. The ones I've seen didn't impress me. Zodiac and Maulao, I have never heard of before. Personally, I'd stay away from such "brands" and look at Pono or KoAloha Opio in your price range.
