Uke Gig

What do you guys think of this ukulele?

Ive been lookin feverishly for a decent Concert uke for somewhere in the area of $50 which i know is hard. Seems like oscar schmidt is one of the only ones for around that price and is not a toy. What do you uke enthusiasts think of these?

any other suggestions would be welcomed. this would be my first uke and i wanted something a little bigger (for my bigger clumsy fingers) and versatile than a soprano but without losing the "ukulele sound" so thats why i want a concert.
THANKS

First of all, yeah, concert is a good size, or even tenor. Soprano ukes sound too chirpy to me, besides the fingerboards being too small. They are traditionally for women players. Hawaiian women with delicate little fingers. 8^)

When it comes to really cheap ukes, and guitars, some of them are just unplayable. They have intonation problems, high action, etc. I would never buy a stringed instrument of any kind without playing it, or bringing someone along who could play it. If you go to a music store (or pawn shop) that has half a dozen ukuleles, they all look alike but you'd be surprised how differently they play!

When it comes to buying one on EBay, I know there are some very attractive prices there, probably some real bargains. But I'd make sure it was returnable. 8^<

Aria is a well known brand--for GUITARS. Otherwise both these instruments look essentially identical. I guess I'd pick the Pali because it's cheaper but comes with a gig bag. That's not much to recommend a musical instrument, but it's all I can say by just looking at the pictures.
