Balnna Soprano Ukulele

The Balnna Soprano ukulele is easily distinguishable with its multi-color finish and fretboard markers.

But while it does veer away from traditional aesthetics, it doesn't stray too far from what you'd expect from the compact traditional 21" soprano profile.

The body of the ukulele is built from maple wood, an interesting choice because it is expected to further brighten the already bright tone expected from small stringed instruments.

It is bundled with a soft gig bag, a strap, an extra set of nylon strings, guitar picks and a digital tuner.

It is often commended for good build quality, but as expected, its main draw is its colorful overall design. Being well built also means that it is easy on the hands, and this is seen in reviews. Sound also gets a number of thumbs up, from those who prefer a more trebly tone. The accessories included in the bundle are also well received.

The color maybe a bit too much for those who prefer earthy color tones.

The Balnna Soprano can help you make colorful music with its distinct finish, a good buy for those who want a fun-looking instrument.

Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best Soprano Ukuleles.
