I am planning to buy an Ukulele tomorrow, and I am a bit lost between types, I managed to figure out the differences between an Soprano Ukulele and a Concert Ukulele.
I have chosen an Concert Ukulele, which I assume it fits my type of musical choice.

The problem is choosing the Ukulele, I've seen many brands available and I am lost between two of them, I've seen the Aloha 30C Ukulele ( http://www.dirkwitte.nl/nl/ukelele/28338-aloha-30c-ukelele-3700166317741.html ) and the Ibanez UKC 10 ( http://www.feedbackmusic.com/gitaar/ibanez-ukc-10-concert/100005502/FBR105960 )

I am lost between which one I should pick, the reviews I've found from the Aloha are all in French, nothing interesting really.

I wonder if anyone has had any experience with any of those two Ukulele's and give me a reason why I should pick that one.

I am not sure about what really differs them both, is the wood? Does the sound change? Or is it just because of the brand?

Thanks in advance!

As you are pointing to Dutch web stores, Im assuming you are Dutch also? Maybe you should also ask your question on our Dutch forum http://forum.ukeclub.nl/. Anyway from these I would probably choose the Ibanez as they generally make better ukes then the cheaper brands (I've never heard of Aloha so meaybe it's ok). You could maybe visit this shop: http://www.ukulele.nl/paradijs/, they are based in Rotterdam. Or if you are nearer to Groningen then http://www.tullys.nl is the place to be.

Hello Xommen,

Thanks for the quick reply, I am currently living in Amsterdam but I am not Dutch, I am only here for studies. Thanks for the links anyway, I will check them and if I find anything interesting I will take it, if you have any other options of concert Ukulele, let me know!
