Hello Guys, Im Newbie At Ukulele's So I Was Needing Some Help About What Ukulele Buy.

I Was Looking At Amazon And I Saw This
http://www.amazon.com/First-Act-FG4022-Soprano-Ukulele/dp/B001O0E5TM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=musical-instruments&qid=1246555764&sr=8-2

Here's an info thread (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?t=11346) about entry level ukuleles . . . I've never heard of First Act. It's probably made in China like a number of inexpensive ukes constructed of wood laminates. I have no idea what is sound like but maybe someone else has and can chime in. BTW, welcome to UU.

Don't do it!!!:eek: Unless you must and have no other choice.

This one is a much better option...... http://cgi.ebay.com/MARTIN-5M-Daisy-Soprano-Ukulele-52-of-100-case_W0QQitemZ270416894636QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_De faultDomain_0?hash=item3ef61a5aac&_trksid=p4634.c0.m14.l1262&_trkparms=%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A30

Haha, just kidding...
The first act brand is a toy brand that they actually sell at some wal marts in the toy section, next to the transformer toys. Try to get a Makala brand or even this http://cgi.ebay.com/SETUP-Kala-KA-15S-Mahogany-Soprano-Ukulele-w-Aquilas_W0QQitemZ330341423706QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH _DefaultDomain_0?hash=item4ce9e21a5a&_trksid=p4634.c0.m14.l1262&_trkparms=%7C293%3A7%7C294%3A30

You will feel much better about your instrument and will want to play it more, when you buy a toy it will be like a toy, you will loose intrest in a few days and move on to the next thing, then you will have a 20 dollar dust collector under your bed.

In todays economy you would be better off just putting a 20 dollar bill under the bed and forgeting about it. sorry about the rant. Good luck in your decision 36 dollars can get you a makala with free shipping on ebay.:shaka:

Looks like you can buy it through Amazon, you should look for a Makala Soprano or Pineapple, one of the best entry level uke's on the market, anything cheaper might not tune properly and you will end up not playing it.

Good choice, you'll like it, I like the sound of the pineapple more than the soprano. Have fun playing your ukulele!:rotfl:
