You don't have to drop a lot of money of your first ukulele! The starter packs from Ohana come with everything an ukulele player needs to get started! It has a tuner, an added button, strap, and bag. All of this at one affordable price. But even at this price point, it will get my personal attention and set up, so the action will be comfortable and ideal so that those learning the ukulele will feel more successful right away!
I always recommend the -10 series from Ohana for a first ukulele! The laminate makes for a very stable uke, so I can take it anywhere and I am not worried about variation in temperature or humidity effecting my uke. The construction, however, is so light that though it is a laminate uke, it is very resonant and has a nice full tone with good projection. It also has REALLY nice frets for a 'starter uke'. Then you can always upgrade later to a nicer uke and then this one can become your travel uke, or one you loan to a friend so they can learn the ukulele as well! You cant go wrong with the -10 series. And with my setup, the beginner uker will feel successful! I take a lot of care with the set up of my instruments, so you get an ukulele at an affordable price with the playability of higher-end ukes!
