Ukulele Solid

why doesn't my ukulele have that generic uku sound, i know its tuned?

well, to my first answer'r, it was 60$, and is a makala

Could be a couple of things.

A Makala can sound fine and is an OK instrument. Most likely it is a soprano size. These may be too small for most men to play. AND many recordings on an ukulele are made with a concert or tenor size ukulele. The size will affect the tonal quality and thus your expectations.

My tenor ukulele (solid koa made by KoAloha) sounds more like a nice small guitar than a "tiny tim ukulele". There are many factors that will create differing tonal qualities -- type of wood used in the body, type of wood used for the soundboard (top) of the ukulele, length of the fretboard, type of strings, type of tuners, internal bracing to supprt the string tension, type of finish, and materials used in the nut/frets/bridge.

If you go to a good music store and ask them to play many of the different ukuleles, you will notice that they all sound a bit different when the same song is played by the same person. maybe a different one will sound closer to what you are expecting. Who knows, maybe you can trade your Makala in for one with the "generic uku sound".
