Ordered Makala Pineapple and it arrives today. The package was solid and delivered within 3 days to Melbourne!!! And yes, you guys gave me my uke stand (from the spin) and all the bonuses inside. But I tried the cutie and don't fancy the sound of the strings tho'. I might change them from the one included in the package. But can't wait to play it to the kids yeay!! Thanks ukulelemate, wait for another order from me soooonnnn😎😎😎
My experience of searching for, ordering, receiving a suitable product for my daughters bday has been outstanding. Thankyou! Not too sure how her playing is progressing as she's been busy playing!! Thanks for providing a fabulous business
It is a christmas gift so am unable to comment on how good it is yet but I am sure it will be fantastic. I did have a look at it and was very impressed.
I had my first ukulele which is Bondi Koa bought from this company and bought my second Kala pineapple. Both my ukes were excellent and the customer service was exceptional, thanks to John. Well done guys, keep it up👍
Wow, I'm nearly 60, starting with no music ability or experience but this uke and the accessories and customer service just fantastic. I'm saving for my next instrument after I've managed to learn more. Thanks so much!!
Fabulous customer service from UkeleleMate. Constant updates relevant to my purchase. Timely delivery and safely packaged. My Ukelele is fabulous and although I am learning gradually, gives me great joy and am looking forward to eventually jamming with my friends
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.
