I am Testing Chinese Ukulele I bought on Lazada for the low price of ฿3,197.00 (87.80 EUR or 104.63 USD).
This Chinese Ukulele buy was terrible from the start. I ordered a Ukulele with a cutaway. After waiting over three weeks to be delivered, I received an instrument with no cutaway…. It was a nightmare to get a refund. Lazada customer support was no help to pick it up; they needed almost another three weeks to have it picked home and proceed with a refund finally.
I ordered one more time a Ukulele with a cutaway to another seller. Before ordering, I chatted with the seller to be sure the instrument on sale had a cutaway. I told him that I returned it because the previous seller sent me the wrong product.
He was a yesman being favorable to all my questions. Guess what? He sent me the same Ukulele I received from the previous seller… I was so pissed off; I decided to keep it!
Check the video I made testing this crappy Ukulele
Was I wrong!
The Ukulele is crap, so is the Low G String Set. The piezo sucks. There’s a vast difference in volume on the high A string compare to the other three strings.
Low G String Set
The Low G String Set is also horrible. All the strings are almost the same size, except the low G. As a result, only the low G and the high A are usable. The two strings in the middle are too light. Therefore, it buzzes a lot when you play. No matter how light you pick the strings, they are buzzing.
I think I’m going to put the three high strings from the original string set on the instrument.
Finally, in the end, ฿3,197.00 (87.80 EUR or 104.63 USD) is not cheap. This is the price of a traditional instrument. I am disappointed by this purchase.
I selected other ukuleles on Lazada, and also I have some better ones accessible on my guitar shop website.
I am Hervé Senni, a pro musician and performer for quite some time.
My main musical instrument is unquestionably the electric guitar. Nevertheless, I also perform bass guitar, mandolin, Ukulele, and invented string instruments. I am also a composer as well as an arranger. Over the years, repairing and trying to further improve electric guitars that a majority of times did not have to be upgraded converted me right into a self-taught luthier.
