Looking to learn the ukulele? Of all the cheap, entry level ukes that we've seen here at Professional Music Technology, we've found the Brunswick BU1S to be particularly well made considering their low price. As it's a smaller soprano sized instrument, these are perfect for younger kids to learn on, but are also suitable for players of all ages.
Constructed from laminated basswood, the Brunswick BU1s is very sturdy and tough, perfect for taking into schools, the satin finish gives the neck a nice smooth feel to it, and the frets have been finished really well so there’s none of the sharp or jagged edges that are all too common on most cheap ukuleles.
Offering the sweet sound of a soprano ukulele, the Brunswick sounds lovely, but most importantly on an instrument like this, it tunes up accurately and stays in tune really well, thanks to a set of smooth, fully geared machine heads and that fact that it comes factory fitted with a set of Aquila Nylon Gut strings, which are a much higher quality set of strings than you usually expect to find on a budget ukulele.
