If you are after an entry level ukulele with full wood construction, the Makala Satin Mahogany Concert is a great option. It doesn't have the bells and whistles of our mid to high end range, but it'll get the job done. For the price, it's an awesome uke.
The Makala Satin Mahogany Concert has a rustic mahogany body finished with a silky satin finish. This is paired nicely with a soft walnut fretboard and bridge. Mahogany is favoured for its well-balanced, versatile tone suitable for fast-paced strumming, delicate fingerpicking, or a gentle, heartrending accompaniment.
Yes, the Makala series should not be overlooked. If you are just starting your ukulele journey, you are in the right place.

Recently purchased this gem of a Ukulele from Ukulelemate. The staff were very helpful and offered wonderful advice on getting into learning the Ukulele - Though I am so new to this hobby, they have encouraged me in this pursuit. The bag of accessories was all I needed to complement the Ukulele, and the learning videos have been enormously helpful.
Can't thank the team enough at Ukulelemate, cheers.
We are having fun with our ukuleles. Thanks Ukulele Mate. 😊
I am so happy with my new Uke, and your service is wonderful! Having all the accessories bundled in was an added bonus too. Thanks so much!
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.
