Takeaway: Bright, full sound, nice construction quality and finish; good set for beginners.

You'll receive the ukulele in a carrying bag, a clip on tuner w/CR2032 battery, a neckstrap, an extra set of nylon strings, a cleaning cloth, and two plastic picks. The case for the ukulele is made of canvas and has a small zippered pocket at the bottom, a side handle, and a shoulder strap on the back. This is a 21" soprano ukulele with a solid mahogany body with a medium/dark stain. The bridge is smooth and has simple beveled edges, and the fret board is also nicely finished; the frets have no sharp edges.

On the back of the head, you have four worm drive tuning pegs with plastic grips for tuning the strings easily. This ukulele has two strap buttons installed to use with a snap-on shoulder strap. The included strap, however, is a sound hole hook-style strap which you wrap around the bottom of the uke and hook into the sound hole. While you can also use this strap with ukuleles that don't have the strap buttons, it's not as secure as a shoulder strap and you can't carry it hands-free.

The tuner comes with a battery that you install in the back of the LCD panel. It helps you adjust the strings when they are flat or sharp with its large, brightly lit, and easy-to-read metered display. When the strings are in-tune the LCD turns bright green for faster visual identification. The uke isn't tuned when you receive it, and the new strings will be very loose. Also, since these new strings need to stretch a lot, you'll need to tune often while playing during the first week. The sound from this ukulele is bright and full with resonant tones. It's really nice for beginners like myself, though if you have large hands and fingers you might want to trade up for the concert size which is bigger and may give your fingers a little more room between the frets. I'm still really new to the ukulele so I only know a few chords and can read through tabs, albeit slowly. Overall, the sound and build of this instrument seems to be good quality, and it's a lot of fun to learn.
