Thread Name: Are ukuleles a real instrument?
Subject: RE: Are ukuleles a real instrument?
Good points Artful,
    The cheap, painted ukuleles that many folks start their ukulele playing on are not really instruments. Of course this is true of guitars, banjos and mandolins as well. I have tried these entry level (a poor term) instruments and anyone would have trouble getting a decent sound out of them. A poor quality instrument will discourage any beginning player and should be avoided.
