This is just a guess, but these kinds of kits are usually soprano; super-basic. The larger sizes are a smaller market, for whatever reason.

From the main product photo, it looks like it's "C":

Hey, the roll-up drum kit is cheaper at Wal-Mart! By 16 cents, but still cheaper.

ok, so maybe the harmonica is a woodwind... but how about a bass clarinet?

Do hobos still stoop to pick up 16-cents?

Does anyone else appreciate the irony that you can't get the Ukulele for Dummies pack shipped to Hawaii? I guess they already have enough people playing the ukulele there.

Yeah, but then you have to deal with the slimy, gross feeling of having bought something at Wal-Mart.

Tambourine is harder to play than most people realize..everyone thinks they can do it...but ask a real percussionist (not a kit drum player but a percussionist) how many can actually pull it off!

I have the Kyser KG6B Quick Change Capo and I use that on my Ukulele.

So far I've been using it for almost a year now and still works fine. I really recommend this one if you're in need of a capo.

I think everyone should get one, professional or not. I like to change up the pitch (using a capo would make it higher) of the Ukulele or Guitar. It makes it cute at times.

POSSIBLY THE BEST BoC THREAD EVER. (With a story!~)

It isn't; though I suppose it's not entirely impossible that it might be from the same factory. I can't speak for the product offered here; but these inexpensive violins can certainly be playable and suitable for learning on.

I picked up one of those [bronze? orange? rust? colored] Retro Fire packs for Christmas for the older kids (11, 12 & 14). We actually used it as one of the early-open family presents. They absolutely loved it. I couldn't pry it out of their hands for days!

I'm no musician (I can play tapes; does that count??), but all three of the older kids are, as well as the wife. The only complaint I have heard so far was about the amp. One of the boys said "we should get a better amp".

Overall I'm super happy with the purchase. I did some looking around at a couple of the local music stores and for the price, I don't think you could beat these sets very easily.

Ah yes the old $99 violin again. Do yourself a favor and go to a teacher at least. Learning such a complex and difficult instrument from a book is just going to instill terrible habits that will be hard to break. Something as simple as holding your hand at slightly the wrong angle will have huge consequences down the road.

Half a dozen more guitars, and still no bass.

(That's ok, I bought one from Amazon last week.)

Which one did you buy? A Sterling S.U.B. Ray, perhaps? Those are awesome basses for the money. I checked one out on the weekend at Guitar Center and it sounded great and was very easy to play.

A. Ha! I'm pretty sure literally every song on Kill The Moonlight has tambourine on it.

B. Tambourine is harder than it looks. It's the worst when someone grabs one and starts flailing with it, because it cuts through everything else. All that can be heard is the metallic suck.
