For someone like me who does not have any background with musical instrument, it is very hard to know which one is of good quality and which is not. I can easily be deceived by the outward look of an instrument. I’ll probably depend on the price, whatever fits my budget would be my choice. Sometimes the har vokse brand is also helpful. If the instrument’s maker has a name, chances are the products are good. Just for example buying a ukulele, if the price is not a factor, I’ll surely choose cordoba ukulele over a no-name ukulele.
How about you? What would be your criteria in buying something that you are not familiar with?
