Removes grime well and significantly brings out the deep, dark brown colours and streaks in the wood. Used on my fretboard, headstock and bridge.

First time trying 11s and 85/15 instead of 80/20. Very happy with these strings. Good balance of warmth and brightness, with a clear chimey-ness when playing open strings and open chord voicings.

Serious beast

Reviewed by on

This bass guitar has punch , with deep low tones , and plenty of resonance for a more sustained note . It has a solid feel to it , with some weight , yet remains comfortable even after a hour of play. The long neck and fret spacing was a problem at first, but is quick to over come with a little practice. It delivers when playing slap or pick , and delivers even more with the right effects pedal setup.

Good entry level Uke for a beginner

Reviewed by on

I have been playing with my Uke on average once a month for the last year. I find the quality to be acceptable for an entry level Uke, to see and find out if the Uke thing is for you or not. The quality is good and the sound it produces is clear, given that you press down on the strings correctly. The first couple of times you play, you will have to tune the Uke - which is normal.

The original strings are of good quality, I still have the original strings on the Uke even after a year of playing. But if you are planning on playing a lot, purchase an extra pair of strings with your order. This is something I recently learned, by watching tutorials from Bernadette teaches music on Youtube. It is normal to change strings often, if you play often and it also depends on your play style.

The bag that comes with the Uke is the reason why I dropped a star. It is not the best bag, but it still protects your Uke from dust and scratches. Take note that this Uke does not come with a shoulder strap or tuner - I suggest purchasing those items with your order as well.

My overall view of the Staff UC-30 is positive; thus, I can recommend this product in conscience.

If you like your guitar to move slightly, you may need to smooth the underside out.

It is super cheap, that is true - but the quality does leave something to be desired anyways. There should be high standards in instrument making, and this is not exactly what I would define a "standard" at all. But it is acceptable for the price.

Great Starter 7 string platform

Reviewed by on

A solid piece of hardware. Well made. No discernable manufacturing defects.
Fret work is good, not great. Fine considering cost of guitar.
Pickups are decent. A little dryer sounding than I'd hoped. I did have to correct their mounting position as the foam inserted underneath was pushing both bridge and next pickup off level.
Switchgear, tone and volume knob are fine.
After a quick setup the string height, action and intonation was to my liking. Not very far off.
No shielding material in electronics cavity.

Things I'm going to upgrade short term...
Pickups, Graphtech nut, electronics shielding(copper/alum)

Long term...
Simplify pickup wiring and switching (3 way). Locking tuners. Stainless steel frets.

I bought it as a great platform to put a few relatively cheap upgrades into. It's providing just that!

One of the best sounding and feeling picks I've ever used

Reviewed by on

At first I didn't like the size or feel on the strings of this particular pick...but after playing with it for a while and realising the speed and clarity/precision of picking on electric because of the jazz shape and thickness...i can't really use much else when playing electric now.

The gauge is a bit too thick for strumming...though it can still be used quite easily. Maybe a bit too dark sounding on acoustic for some. Excellent for thicker gauge strings on electric. One of the best picks I've ever used. Nylon with a polycarbonate injection provides a very nice feeling and extremely durable pick. 5/5
