Outstanding Laminate Instrument at an Outstadning Price Review by Chris

I bought a Zebrawood Concert and Tenor for my middle school choir program. I have incorporated ukulele as a way for students to have a musical outreach other than choir, and so they can develop a skill they can take with them out of middle school if they don't take high school music (students have to take music, so if they are not in band or orchestra, they have to take choir whether they want to sing or not).

We bought 58 of another brand of ukulele as a cheap way to get into ukulele. Then I found Caramel on eBay--and then on Amazon. I bought a Zebrawood Concert and Tenor, with the idea that even if the instruments were not playable, we would have examples of other sizes of ukuele on hand.

When the ukuleles arrived, I was stunned by what arrived. The instruments are well made, sound great, and compete easily with any of my other laminate ukuleles. I teach in the Midwest, so a purchase of a sold wood ukulele without a way to humidify a classroom is a recipe for disaster--so laminate ukuleles are a perfect solution for me.

We liked the CT102A so much that we later bought 2 more of them with the limited funds that we had at the end of the year.

If I am critical, our Caramel ukuleles have three problems. First, there is an interior brace that is visible through the sound hole, and it is crooked. That brace should either be straight or lower (not visible through the sound hole). Second, the frets have a sharp edge. These should be smoother (some Caramel owners file them down). Third, the nut (white piece on the top) also has a sharp edge--this should also be addressed. You aren't going to cut yourself, but you feel the edges. Finally--the first tenor that we purchased had crooked tuners--which doesn't impact playability at all--but it does look a little funny.

Otherwise, the instruments stay in tune (as well as any ukulele), put up with the climate in the choir room (temperature and humidity), and general abuse from daily use. I found that if I didn't set specific rules for my students, they would argue with each other about using the Caramels.

Our solution will be to add more.

If you are new to ukulele---this is a great place to start. It won't break your budget at all. You won't find another tenor for this price--and if you have larger hands or are coming from guitar, consider this instrument. Look at the price and buy it. If you are an experienced ukulele player, you might want to look at some of Caramel's solid wood instruments.

All I I know is that I am recommending this instrument to any music educator that I know--and I like many of the offerings from other manufacturers. You just can't beat what you get for this price. (Posted on 7/23/2016)
Great Entry Level Ukulele! Review by Fletch

This is a great entry level Ukulele. It is well made and the Zebra wood looks great. The sound hole design and head stock logo are etched into the wood. It has a great rich sound. The Aquila strings sound great and don't take too long to stretch until they stay in tune. I do have one issue though. The fretwork is very rough along the edges of the neck. This makes it more difficult to play anything with slides up or down the neck without catching on the frets. That being said I think it's a good purchase for $39 shipping included. I found a good fret file and worked on the frets. Now it sings and I can play it normally and not catch on the fret edges. Beautiful job just watch the finishing touches folks! (Posted on 3/6/2016)
