What passes as affordable when it comes to ukuleles is simply impossible to find elsewhere. However, there is one category of ukuleles that is even cheaper than that.
We are talking about the most basic, dirt cheap models which are primarily designed with beginners in mind.
Some of the biggest names in the business don’t even bother with this category. This is perfectly normal as they have a very different user base that insists on quality over quantity.
Even though you probably won’t find an extremely cheap Kanilea anytime soon, this vacuum has left enough room for a number of budget oriented uke brands to jump in.
One such brand is Diamond Head. The range of their ukuleles rarely reaches higher than intermediate level.
However, without them, we would have much fewer beginner players out there and those. One model that really sticks out for a number of reasons is the Diamond Head DU-150.
