The Kala Exotic Mahogany is hands-down a gorgeous looking tenor ukulele. This ukulele is suitable for those who are looking for a top quality instrument that looks exotic but doesn't break the bank. It's a real eye grabber with a unique, intricate grain.
The KA-CEM is a laminate ukulele which keeps the price reasonable. If it was solid wood, it'd be 3x the price and might only sound a touch better. I like it the way it is. Kala have done a great job with the wood selection and material matching. The black body binding and tuning pegs accentuate the light, rippling texture of the exotic mahogany. I think it offers a great alternative for those wanting the versatile sound of a mahogany uke, but with a different aesthetic.

It's was nice since I place the order. The whole process and follow up has been great!
This is the first time I have bought a musical instrument & I am very happy with it. The service was great from Ukelelemate & I do thoroughly recommend them.
I'm loving my new uke. Great service from Ukulelemate. Highly recommended.
Everything you need in one package for beginners. The Ukulele sounds great, the accessories are awesome and educational. If you are able to, I recommend testing some of the higher end ukuleles, the sounds are amazing and it encourages me to play. It just sounds awesome!
We received our Ukulele very fast, especially in these times. My Daughter and I have both been having fun trying to learn. The videos that get sent out after the purchase are great, especially for beginners like us. We where able to tune the ukulele straight away and are on our way to getting our first song down.
Thanks a lot Darren
No better time to learn to play the Uke! I purchased the Kala Exotice Mahogany Concert Ukulele & absolutely love it! The uke stand, chord chart, digital tuner, & chord stamp are all very handy, & I chose the lovely Yarramundi case. One thing I would have liked to see is for the stamp to actually stamp in the same direction, but this is just a minor thing. Also, stuck the chord stickers on to the neck of my uke, but not really sure what or how to benefit from having them there, so I will painstakingly remove them individually. All in all, very happy with my purchase!
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.
All orders before 4pm are dispatched same day. We choose the fastest courier based on your postcode. Over 80% of our orders arrive in 1-2 days. If you live in a rural area, it will take a couple of extra days, but we will make sure it's dispatched fast and with the best courier possible.
