Resonator Ukuleles get their tone and name from the metal resonator that sits on the top of the body. This resonator gives the ukulele a mid frequency boost that creates a very unique, almost old-timey tone (check out the audio below and you'll see what I mean!).
The Bondi Bluegrass Silver Resonator Ukulele features a traditional Bell Brass body with a highly polished gloss chrome finish. The Mahogany neck is perfectly complimented with a beautiful rosewood fretboard and a smooth matte finish.
Mahogany is a heavy wood that is really stable as a neck. It can add a little warmth to the tone that blends very well with the Bell Brass body of this reso. The combination of all of this is a ukulele unlike any you're ever heard or played!
Like all of the Bondi Resonator Ukuleles, you'll be able to keep it clean and safe in the included case.

The staff at Bondi Ukuleles are extremely helpful. I had a few questions before I made my purchase, all of which were answered promptly and politely. When I placed the order for the Bondi Bluegrass Silver Resonator Ukulele, it was in the mail on the same day. It arrived a couple of days later, very well packaged in a sturdy carboard box, the uke case inside the box was covered with attractive and protective tissue paper. I also received a velvet drawstring bag with heaps of goodies including a quality strap, electronic tuner, humidifier, picks, spare strings and more. I was delighted when I opened the ukulele case, it is just fabulous! The workmanship is flawless and sturdy. The uke sounds absolutely fabulous. I love it (and so did the other members of our playalong group). I have no hesitation in recommending Bondi Ukuleles / Ukulelemate to purchase your new uke.
The new ukulele looks amazing and cat wait to learn to use it
I’m currently watching the videos that you linked me to
Thank you to you and your team
Absolutely love the sound of my resonator Uke. Very rich and clear.
Beautifully constructed. Solid and substantial. The sound is a lovely, twangy bluegrass vibe and as it’s a resonator it’s wonderfully loud. It’s on the small end of the concert size so maybe not for you if you have thick fingers. Remarkably the steel strings have stayed in tune from my first tuning and Bondi tell me that they sell replacement strings made in Germany although they’re not on the website. Came in a really nice concert sized hard case too. I’m a very happy man!
Thank you for the great Uke and the great service you provide.
This is the 3rd time I have dealt with you guys at Ukulele Mate and each time I have been super impressed. (Twice for orders for my school, this time for me personally)
Will continue to recommend Ukulele Mate to everyone that wants to listen !!!
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.
