Get ready to step into a whole new world of fun! The bluegrass series from bondi brings the familiarity of ukuleles and the twang of Bluegrass into the same instrument.
The bondi bluegrass series banjo ukulele is a concert size ukulele that gives you the ideal blend of size and weight. Unlike many banjo-hybrid instruments, it has an open back to give you a brighter, crisper, clearer tone, free of muddy frequencies.
The all maple neck and frame are finished in a beautiful matte finish. The hard Rosewood fretboard and bridge combined with the bone nut gives you maximum sustain. All of the hardware is a highly polished chrome steel that resists corrosion and nicely contrasts the dark finish.
The bondi bluegrass series banjo ukulele is paired perfectly with Aquila super nylgut strings and a vintage styled Remo skin for that authentic banjo tone.

I bought the ukekele as a gift. Could you please send all emails to him at [****]
I love my new Blue Grass Banjo/ukulele. It has a great sound and is easy to play. I can see myself getting many hours of wonderful musical enjoyment with this instrument. It is heavier than my soprano ukulele and the sound is brighter and louder. I love them both. I was also very pleased with the lovely bag, strap and the extras that came with it. I recommend it to anyone that wants to add to their collection of ukuleles. The video instructions were excellent but as I have been playing for over 12 months I did not need them.
Have been on the lookout to add to my collection and came across this beauty. Big bluegrass sound and incredible customer service. You won’t be disappointed and you won’t be able to swipe the smile from your face from the first strum and finger picking. Enjoy.
Great service, quality & sound, awesome banjolele i love it
This is the forth Bondi Uke my partner and I have purchased from Ukelelemate. The instruments are great quality and sound terrific, but really it's John's customer service that really sets Ukelelemate apart. I would like to have seen a specific instruction sheet included with our Bondi Banjo Ukes how to set up the bridge, but it was somthing that I was able too look up on the internet without too much difficulty. That aside, I have my eye on the Bondi Tenor Spalted Maple Uke...would make a lovely 5th edition to our Bondi Uke collection.
Im an oldie and havent played anything except acuostic guitars my whole life. I wanted something a bit smaller than a guitar as I am struggling with the size of my guitars of these days. Well I did decide on a tenor ukulele but for some reason I changed my mind and went for the banjo instead! Its been one hell of a ride so far but I am slowly getting the hand of it and have no regrets buying this. Very happy customer, thank you for reaching out Joel
All ukuleles under $1000 are made in China. There are a handful of instruments made in the USA/Australia but they come with a hefty price tag and aren't always worth the price. Often the more affordable instruments are just as good, if not better. At ukulelemate, we have tested thousands of instruments and found the sweetspot where quality meets value.
Yes you can! We have the best returns policy in the Australian music industry. No matter what you buy from us, we will take it back within 60 days and give you a full refund for the original purchase. What's even better - we pay for the return shipping. It's simple and easy.
We offer a lifetime warranty on all products. You won't find this anywhere else in the world, most music stores offer 12 months, maybe 24 months if you are lucky. We sell products that are high quality and will last. We stand behind them with a lifetime warranty.
Each ukulele that leaves our warehouse will undergo a strict QC and setup process by our experienced staff. The setup process if fairly similar for all instruments but we will spend more time on the more expensive models. The budget models will receive all of the crucial checks but we won't spends as much time on things such as fretboard lemon oil.
We package the ukes extremely well with our own thick custom made boxes. Each year we ship thousands of ukuleles all across Australia and the world. We guarantee you will receive your uke in 100% perfect condition.
