I am a big fan of Ovations and this Ukulele doesn't disappoint - too much. It is quite quiet and not a very forgiving player, it also has a distinctive sound, I like it, but its not exactly traditional, so if you are looking for the classic Koa, Mahogany or Spruce Ukulele tone this isn't the one for you. I have messed around with the strings and tunings on this one quite a bit but now I have settled on the Aquila Reds they work really well getting the best out of the tone and the red over black looks pretty good too - still quite quiet though.
Mine came with a very low action and I did have some problems with fret buzz when it was new, (always a worry when buying unplayed, over the Internet). This was largely solved by changing the strings, thought I did adjust the bridge height as well, (and Ovation make this easy by putting a few shives in under the saddle so all you have to do is remove some until you get the high you want or take one out and use it as a template to make some more with a sharp knife and an old yoghurt pot). Apart from the fret buzz this is a very well made Ukulele and with the plastic bowl back one that is not so vulnerable to humidity
