Ibanez: IUKS5 Ukulele Pack
by Guitar Guru
”Affordability for the Beginning Ukulele Player”
If affordability is your priority, then you may want to consider the Ibanez IUKS5 Ukulele Pack with a gag and accessories included. For a low, all inclusive price you not only get a soprano sized ukulele, but a chromatic clip-on tuner and a padded gig bag as well.
For the beginning ukulele player, it is understandable that you do not want to make a major investment in an instrument you may not continue playing. With the Ibanez IUKS5 you get a sleek looking ukulele along with its accessories for the affordable price of just ~$99. Even the gig bag is not that bad, padded in the places that would receive the most jarring and banging to help you keep your uke as damage-free as possible.
Built on a soprano sized body, this laminate mahogany instrument is fully bound, which gives it a sleek and professional look. And while it does not have the quality of sound of a solid type model (such as the Silver Creek All Solid Soprano Ukulele
at ~$149) it does have a clear tone that is pleasing even if it loses its tone fairly quickly, though not as quickly as many laminate models. Of course when compared to those ukuleles made out of plastic, this little number blows them clean away with a far more professional woody tone that sounds like a real ukulele instead of like a child’s toy.
True to its reputation, Ibanez takes the creation of its ukuleles as seriously as it does the construction of its acoustic and acoustic-electric guitars. It makes sure to pay tribute to the origins of the ukulele and its island heritage. All in all, the Ibanez IUKS5 Ukulele Pack with Bag and Accessories is an excellent value for the price and will give you years worth of playability, especially for the beginning ukulele player.
