“Loved unwrapping all the lil goodies that came with it…
felt like xmas, my b'day, all rolled into one”
- Pele M.
The bell rings. You rush down the stairs, and on your doorstep…
...it looks like a gig bag, beautifully packed.
Woah that was fast.
You start unpacking and right there - your heart skips a beat.
It’s your stunning, new ukulele!
But wait, the unwrapping is not done. There’s all sorts of goodies in there, a tuner, a strap, spare strings, a book...
The fabulous smell of wood brings your attention back to the ukulele.
Your hands are shaking, you just can’t wait to sit down and start strumming.
On your mind, only surprising your friends and family with your new skills.
And how hard it will be to fit life commitments in between your jams!
You pick your ukulele up, gently strum…
...yes, it’s that sweet sweet sound you’ve always wanted.
Changing the way you experience ukuleles
Whether you’re a beginner or experienced ukulele player, we believe you deserve a wonderful, amazingly looking and sounding instrument.
The ukulele industry is drowning in a sea of generalist music shops, who only care about selling you the most expensive item they have in store.
And that’s between the only 4 or 5 (crappy) models they stock.
Let me ask you:
Ever stepped foot into your local music shop and asked to try a ukulele?
Chances are the one you tried was probably dusty, out of tune and that the “expert” you were talking to was at best a guitar player, and at worst a drummer (no offense to either!).
That’s not how your first experience with a ukulele should be.
We want to change that.
We make it effortless to find a ukulele you’ll fall in love with. Use our 2-minute questionnaire, our buyers guide or ask our friendly staff on live chat.
Australia is huge. It can take ages to receive a package sometimes. We dispatch same day and most ukes are delivered in 1-2 days.
You can find your ukulele between 300+ models in different sizes, colours, woods, sounds and prices.
Our team, the people you speak with, are neither bots, nor guitar players or drummers. They are ukulele experts. Ukuleles are their bread and butter.
Left handed? You’re in the 10% of the population. That’s not peanuts! We offer the largest collection of left-handed ukuleles in the world, so you too, can find your own.
Not what you wanted or need to exchange your ukulele? You get free 60-day returns, no questions asked.
Before we send your uke, we set it up and carefully package it. So you’re ready to start playing as soon as you receive it.
With your ukulele and free bag, you also get a ton of learning tools, video tutorials and even a live lesson. So you can (and want to) practice. Right from day 1.
You get a lifetime warranty on your ukulele. That’s right, not 12 months - for life. We put skin in the game. You can be sure we’re only stocking top brands.
You deal with an Aussie-based company, not some random warehouse around the world. We stock our own products and put a premium on quality control.
Real fulfilment comes from hearing happy customers every day, and knowing we're helping make their lives brighter with every uke.
It’s gorgeous, and came with so many accessories that are perfect for a beginner, I don’t feel like I’ve been left in the dark or like I have to YouTube every little detail to learn about this instrument properly!
My husband's words..."Fair dinkum I am like a 3 year old at Xmas...just lovin the banjolele and all the other tremendous gifts included. Also thanks for the extremely helpful tutorials via emails.
I found Ukelelemate and was pleasantly surprised that they have a lot of good options for us lefties. I look forward to many years of playing and teaching with this amazing instrument.
What a ukulele can do
Hi, I’m Joel the founder of UkuleleMate.
My passion for ukuleles was born out of inspiration.
A trip to Hawaii and dozens of locals happily playing on every beach lit the match.
But since my childhood years and thanks to my parents, what inspired me, has always been the feeling of making someone I love proud.
That’s the same feeling I want you to have, the first time you play your uke in front of your family and friends.
That’s what your musical instrument can do.
Whether it’s for a few minutes or for a lifetime of playing, until it’s passed down to your grandkids.
Every single decision we make at UkuleleMate, is anchored to making people’s lives better.
Anchored to making your ukulele worthy of such special moments like Christmases and birthdays.
Because after all, we’re a big ukulele family.
And I can’t wait for you to join us.
With you every step of the way
