The Luna Honu Soprano Ukulele has a charming, highly attractive and fun character which are all good traits when looking for the best ukuleles. The designs carved in the body of Mahogany and attention to detail give this Ukulele a value well above its cost. Luna is doing a fantastic job of having a good tone from this inexpensive ukulele and making it one of the best ukulele for beginners and experienced players on ukulele. Although it may be more expensive for beginners than some of the other ukuleles, this is a solid instrument you won’t regret to own.

9.9 Expert Score

The Luna Honu Soprano Ukulele is also known as the Tribal Turtle Ukulele.  It is a beautifully crafted Soprano Ukulele that has traditional Hawaiian body tattoos carved into the frame in a Polynesian tattoo style.  The dark Mahogany Uke with it’s artistic design stands out in both looks and sound.  

As one of the better Ukuleles under $100, it is a great deal for any level player that wants an affordable, good looking ukulele to take with you on the go.  This is especially solid as a ukulele for beginners as it’s better than many other ukuleles in its price range and has the bonus of looking super cool.
