I had to have it... May 8, 2017
Reviewer: Trina Lyn from Charleston, SC  
As soon as I laid my eyes on a Firefly for the first time I knew I had to have one. I love the sound, look, and novelty of the instrument.  As a novice ukulele player,  this was my first major instrument upgrade. I was nervous that it might be difficult to play or set up for a beginner. Luckily, Magic Fluke took care of all the fine details and when I received my Firefly I was tuned up and playing music within the hour. They even marked where my bridge should be.  This instrument plays like a dream, is surprisingly light and has been a head turner for sure.  I definitely recommend it!

Beautiful, great sounding instrument December 23, 2015
Reviewer: Ann from New York  
I LOVE my Firefly!  I had agonized for quite a while about adding another instrument to my uke collection. I'd been considering a resonator uke or a banjolele. The banjoleles that I saw were often heavy with a lot of bulky metal. My dad owns a Fluke uke which he loves and based on having played that many many times, I decided to just take a chance on the Firefly. I haven't been at all sorry. This instrument is beautifully made, lightweight, easy to play, and LOUD. It really projects!  For a small instrument, it has an incredible sound. My dad and I play in a folk group together and we both play ukulele and because he taught me, we both have the exact same playing style. Adding the Firefly into the mix has really helped because the sound is so different. Thank you Magic Fluke Company! Please come up with more uke hybrid instruments, like a mandolin uke or a resonator uke!

Can't put it down December 23, 2015
Reviewer: Chris W. from Victoria, BC  
I've had my Soprano Firefly for about three months now, and I have played it for at least half an hour every  single day.  That's how much fun it is.  The quality and playabiIity are superb.  I replaced the stock strings with Fremont Black Line low-G strings (note that this required making the string slot on the bridge just a teensy bit bigger.)  Rainbow Connection on the uke never sounded so good.  8^)

I was a little worried about the bridge sinking into the head over time, so I inserted a small circle of closed cell foam under the head right beneath the bridge.  This supports the head and also mutes the instrument a bit, which is handy for practice.  Probably not necessary, but it brings me a little peace of mind.

Anyway, I can't recommend the Firefly enough.  I'm taking mine on vacation this summer!

Very nice! December 23, 2015
Reviewer: Francois Ouellette from Toronto, ON Canada  
I wanted a soprano but ended up buying the concert, not sure how different the size is, but this one seems to come with the rosewood fingerboard (it's an option on the soprano). Regular banjoleles are heavy and have lots of metal parts getting on the way when holding them, this one has a smooth body and is super-light! Yet, still has a big sound. The slotted headstock is a bonus, it looks much nicer than a regular flat head. The standard tuners seems fine. The label says it came with D'Addario strings,  which sound decent. All and all an excellent buy, and tons of fun!

my first Firefly (a dream come true) February 13, 2015
Reviewer: Slap Pappy from Clifton, NJ United States  
after much frustration trying to get a baritone uke out of a tenor banjo (don't ask) I finally bought the Soprano Firefly today and it's simply the best value for the money!  Just the essentials, no frills.  Very light, great sound, learning to adjust the tuners but that's a minor point (care and feeding is on this site) and the neck width is very comfortable for a large-fingered gent.  I own a few other regular ukes, but I intend to put serious mileage on this one,
