This model is actually a concert ukulele, which has a larger body than a soprano ukulele; the larger body gives it a deeper, louder tone. The longer, wider neck is more comfortable to hold and the string action is excellent. You'll like how this instrument sounds.

I love this ukulele. It has a beautiful satin finish on it. The wood grain is so pretty. I really like the size of this ukulele. I have a soprano ukulele and the concert ukulele size is very comfortable to hold. The frets have more space for your fingers to play chords. I don't have to squeeze my fingers as much when playing the chords. The strings the ukulele came with where dull and muted so I put on a set of D'addario J53. The J53 make the ukulele sound wonderful they are my favorite strings.

Pretty Good For A Starter

By JD Price

from Charlotte, NC

Comments about Oscar Schmidt OU2 Concert Ukulele:

Uke is well made and plays just fine. As a first time player, I don't know the 'real' feeling of a high-end uke but I like it OK. The tuning keys are a huge addition and seem to keep the uke in tune just fine unlike some other ukes I have seen reviewed on music123. Now that I've had a taste of uke playing, I'll probably move up to a high-end instrument. My daughter should find this one great to learn on.

Great for a beginner

By Jeremy-RJg3s

from New Orleans, LA

Comments about Oscar Schmidt OU2 Concert Ukulele:

I bought this just to see if I would like the ukulele. One month later, I'm upgrading to a nicer one, 'cause I can't put it down. This uke is a great deal for the money, but it does have some setbacks, too. You can visibly see that the neck on mine is set just a touch off square, which makes the intonation a little "iffy". I also thought it sounded a little dead, but I fixed that by putting the Martin strings on it and pitching the black ones that came on it. Improved the sound 100%! Again, it's not perfect, but as an entry-level, playable ukulele, you can't beat it.

Generally pleased

Comments about Oscar Schmidt OU2 Concert Ukulele:

This is my first uke. I mainly play sax and recently have been working on 5-string banjo. The instrument looks good, though there is a minor flaw in the wood surface on one side. Nothing you can see without getting up close. The sound is pleasant. I followed the advice of others and changed the strings to Aquila Nylgut. That produced a clearer and stronger sound. The included strings took about a week to hold their tune. The Aquila strings took only a few days. Given the price, I'm quite pleased and am having a lot of fun with the instrument. I have no regrets.

i like this UK

By Kevin Green

from OMaha, Ne

Comments about Oscar Schmidt OU2 Concert Ukulele:

The ukulele arrived packaged well, and was in great condition. The ukulele plays very well and seems to have nice action. This is my second uk. Once the strings are tuned and stretched to stay in tune the uk keeps tune very nicely, but you have to give it a week of retuning every time you play it. This is because the strings take time to settle in and stretch a bit, not because the uk can not keep tune. If this is your first uk it seems a good idea to me to be retuning it a lot anyway so you can get your ear real used to the sound of it in and out of tune. I was very happy with the tuners.. The strings are not the best but not terrible either. I am thinking of getting some aquila strings which should make the uk sound even better.. The uk is finished but it is whats called a satin finish so it does not have a glossy look to it, I like this look better than glossy anyway.. The wood top is very pretty and looks to be one piece or bookmatched, it doesnt seem to be ply but I think the sides and back may be, the description of it in terms of wood was a litlle lacking. That being said it has a wonderful sound to it.and a great look. This ukulele sounds as good as it looks to me i am very happy with my purchase.. Oh yeah the aloha printed on the tuning head rocks too!!

with a little work

Comments about Oscar Schmidt OU2 Concert Ukulele:

I bought this uke and after finishing it myself I really like it. It should come as a kit though with sandpaper, steel wool, some type of finish and instructions on how to set it up. Out of the box it was rough and the bridge was extremely high. After a few hours of work with some sandpaper and a couple coats of finish, I finally had a nice Uke. With a little work, Washburn would have a good quality product, it is a shame they send them out the door like that.

A big hit at my house!

By Chris-ldXhA

from northeastern USA

Comments about Oscar Schmidt OU2 Concert Ukulele:

This is an excellent uke. My two college students went nuts over this one and the two less expensive models when the order arrived two weeks into summer break. Time for some summertime music making. This one has a superior sound and handles nicely. I recommend it to all.

Excellent Uke

By Louise

from Antelope Valley, CA USA

Comments about Oscar Schmidt OU2 Concert Ukulele:

I am very impressed with this low cost Uke. This is an excellent full volume sounding Uke. The size is very nice and easy to use for smaller hands. Very warm tones. Simply excellent, I highly recommend this as a first Uke. I'm very pleased.

A beautiful instrument!

By New Uke Man in Indiana

from Indianapolis Indiana USA

Comments about Oscar Schmidt OU2 Concert Ukulele:

I got hooked on the uke from watching the Concert For George where Macca opens "Something" with it and then Joe Brown does an awesome rendition of "I'll see you in my dreams", made me realize that it isn't just a "tiny Tim/Hawaiian" thing. It's a lovely sweet instrument and this Oscar Schmidt model looks and sounds like it cost MUCH more. The soft travel bag was also a great buy.
