The VI Victory line is the first ukulele collection from Musictopia, who are known for their budget-friendly guitars and accessories. This particular model is a 23” concert-sized uke that’s playable enough for a beginner but attractive enough to take on stage. It might not be the least expensive option on this list, but it’s still an impressive value—especially considering everything that comes included in the box.

The VI Victory beginner kit comes with two picks, a comfortable strap, and a clip-on tuner. It also comes pre-strung with Aquila strings, the standard in the industry. The black satin finish of the included ukulele is unique and striking; Musictopia also offers their VI Victory concert uke in a natural finish, for a more traditional look.

Whichever finish you go with, the build is near professional quality, both in terms of the instrument’s body and the included hardware. The body and neck are made of African mahogany, with Indonesian rosewood for the bridge and fingerboard. This classic combination of tonewoods gives the instrument the sweet, warm tone concert ukuleles are known for. This is heightened by the arched back design, which gives it both a richer tone and a sleeker appearance.

The die-cast chrome machine heads are rust-resistant and easy to adjust. Compared to other bargain models, you’ll find the VI Victory is easier to tune and stays in tune longer, which is especially important for a beginner. It also uses real bone for the nut and saddle. This small detail can make a big difference in the sound. Real bone transmits vibrations better than synthetic, translating to a clearer overall tone.
