"I bought this ukulele for my daughter. She loves the outdoors and needed a sturdy uke she could take hiking and camping. I didn't know if she'd like the tone, but she says it is her favorite of her 3 ukuleles she owns."
"The description says the ukulele is a plastic ukulele, but it is more of a resin material that resonates so well. I don't usually do ukulele reviews, but I was so impressed that I thought It was good for others to know my experience as well."
"We bought 12 of these in various colors for our school music program. It said the instrument was an outdoor ukulele which we didn't think we'd care about, but what it ended up meaning for us is it can take a beating from our students. Just what we needed."

The Waterman is a ukulele for everyone but pays special tribute to people that live the waterman, outdoor lifestyle.The Waterman Ukulele pays homage in part to the legendary ukulele designer, Mario Maccaferri. Inspired at the 1939 Worlds Fair he saw plastic as the material of the future.

After being endorsed by entertainer, Arthur Godfrey, on his TV show, 9 million of the Maccaferri ukes were sold between 1949 and 1969. KALA has taken the Maccaferri concept and brought it to another level. The innovative Waterman is a high-quality, affordable ukulele that sounds great and stays in tune. It is the portable, take-anywhere ukulele.Its the ultimate outdoor ukulele. Take it to the beach, the river, the lake, the mountains. Take the Waterman anyplace. anywhere. Its your uke for the road.
