Bondi's Surf Ukuleles are the perfect ukulele for beginners. They combine the quality you expect from Bondi at an affordable price tag which beginners will appreciate.
Bondi Surf Ukuleles are constructed from Mahogany for the top, back and sides. The body is much deeper than most low cost ukuleles. This gives you much better resonance and a richer tone. The fretboard is an exotic wood called Purpleheart, and is beautifully contrasted with the one piece Walnut bridge. These are unheard of on a ukulele at this price!
These ukuleles play really well, which means you won't suddenly grow out of it. Too often with ukuleles around this price you'll find cheap materials and construction. Bondi has solved this issue by using the very same building techniques and quality control they use on their higher end instruments. All with premium tonewoods.
If you're looking for a "beginner" ukulele that plays well, sounds great and will last for years to come; you've found it!

I absolutely LOVE my new ukulele! I was so excited when it arrived super fast after placing my order. I was also super impressed with the product quality and also with their customer service, checking in and helping me with any problem I might have. It was super cool that I got a hard case for a dicounted price along with this ukulele! I wasn't expecting to get that, but I'm so glad I did now as it makes it so much easier and safer to transport my cute little uke around. I will definitely be looking to shop with UkuleleMate again and support a local business as well as referring friends/family to them!
Thank you so much for my beautiful ukulele it was always my dream to learn to play such and now I think I have found a teacher love the extras that came with it and also the traveling bag and the sound to me is fantastic
I tried the ukelele for the first time and it sounded great. But I'm no expert in any way and so got a friend who is a guitarist and she said it was a very nice ukelele.
I am very happy with this ukelele, thank you
My wife recently bought me a Kala Pineapple through your excellent store, and I was so Impressed with the case and accessories I decided to look up the Ukulelemate website. I just bought a Bondi Surf from the clearance section. I'm excited to try a Bondi Uke and have high expectations which I'm sure will be met. Will be in the market for a Tenor soon and I will definately be going with you guys. Keep up the great work!!
This product was a Valentine’s gift for my boyfriend. The packaging and the accessories that came with it was the perfect gift. Would defiantly recommend and will purchase again from UkuleleMate!
I got this as a gift for my children for Christmas and they absolutely love it. It’s a great ukelele for those starting out on string instruments. The quality of sound from such a small and budget-friendly instrument was surprisingly great. I received the package less than 24 hours later and the team was very fast and friendly during interactions. An overall amazing buy and would recommend to anyone looking to purchase as a gift.
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.

Each ukulele that leaves our warehouse will undergo a strict QC and setup process by our experienced staff.
