Koa has long been the tone wood of choice for ukuleles. In fact, it's believed that the first ukulele was made out of Hawaiian Koa. It's a visually stunning wood with intense striping and orange hues. The wood is so beautiful that it's used in high end furniture.
The Bondi Ripple Koa Series uses this beautiful wood for the top, back, and sides of the body. This creates a balanced tone with a slight mid push. Mahogany is used for the neck because of its stability and feel. The fretboard and bridge are made from ebony and provide a wonderful contrast to the Koa.
The Ripple Koa ukuleles are finished in semigloss to make the striping pop. An elegant Indigo Blue Pearl binding and headstock inlay completes the look. These are high quality ukes with a wonderful tone that stands out in the mix.

I received my Bondi Ripple Koa Concert Ukulele a couple of days after ordering. As it was my Christmas present from my hubby, I could only open it and check to make sure there wasn’t any transit damage and then close the box back up. Needless to say, I was very excited Christmas morning to finally get my hands on it, it is so beautiful. We spent that day putting the chord stickers on and I have found them to be invaluable when learning. I have small hands and was quite concerned that I wouldn’t be able to play some of the chords, but with practice, I am getting there. I love the sound and my husband enjoys listening to my “sessions”. I would recommend Ukulelemate to anyone who is looking for a ukulele, beautiful products and excellent service!
Very good. It is the second ukulele bought from Ukulele Mate, and it never disappoints. Service is excellent, and even with the pandemic, the item got to me in quick time. Happy to stay with this supplier for all my future ukulele needs.
I got my 1st uke Ripple Koa concert from ukulelemate, Really nice design and sound amazing after been searching for a while around Australia. This shop is all everything you need. Sale, service and after sale. Highly recommended!!!
I bought this ukulele because I want to play for my baby girl and she love it so much. If you still shopping around go ahead and chat with them, you will get what you need. 😉
The Bondi ripple koa concert is a beautiful uke. The satin gloss makes it look so cool. The sound of the uke is sweet and bright. The main thing is the level of service ukulelemate provided throughout my transaction. I am literally amazed by service these guys provide. They went out of their way to give the best looking uke. I am really thankful to them and will definitely buy again from ukulelemate. Special mention to John, an amazing guy. He dealt with all my queries and issues patiently and made sure I was satisfied with my purchase. You have gained a lifetime customer. Thanks a lot!!
The delivery was excellent and the service exceptional. Even after I changed my mind and upgraded to a second uke nothing was too much trouble for the team. I love my ukulele it is beautiful and sounds awesome. Thank you.
My experience with UkuleleMate was nothing but exceptional. But most importantly was the quality of the Bondi Ripple Koa Concert Ukulele Package I have received. The Ukulele looks, sounds, feels great and is very well build.
The Ukulele and I became BFF from the word go. It felt like did play this instrument forever already. I just love my new Ukulele and would recommend it to everyone I know and those I do not know.
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.
