I am really impressed with this uke. stays in tune and has a nice sound. even non musicians have commented on the sound. I own some high end guitars and am a snob about tone. this may not be a 3K but it is worthy of the Martin name.

The Martin S1 soprano ukulele was the successor to the short-lived Martin S-O uke that I have as well in my uke closet. There is also another entry level OXK Martin soprano uke but that one is somewhat different being made of pressured koa laminate wood. The S1 is far better than the original S-O. It’s more solid, has a clear bright sound with 17 frets, and perfection intonation. It’s made in Mexico as are all the entry level Martin ukes. Martin made the original S-O with no dots (fret markers) and only 12 frets but they corrected this with this new and improved S-1 model. IMHO, this should be the first ukulele for any ukulele player, especially if they already have played guitar and want a good uke. It stays in tune and sounds great!
