I don’t wan’t a cheap one but on the other side i also dont want a ukulele that is to expensive i have looked at these ukuleles

    I don't know about the Brunswick, but the Kala is much better than the Makala.

    Yes, but Makala is the lower level line. Nothing wrong with Kala if you buy from a dealer that does a proper setup. Where are you located?

    Hopefully some of our EU members can recommend good shops across the pond. I could have given you some from the US

    What about the setup? There is very few people playing ukulele in Denmark and i don’t Think the store’s that sell Them is avalible to set Them up.

    Don’t know if i Will ever find one ukulele there is so Many oppinions what is the Best starter ukulele. The one Think i know is that i want a Concert and the Prize range is about 150$

    I'd happily go for the Kala, mine have all been OK, purchased from The Southern Ukulele Store here in the UK.
    (I think they can ship to Europe OK).
