This sweet Ohana sopranissimo pineapple ukulele is fantastic! There is a massive trend towards very short scale ukuleles at the moment, with makers like John Daniel with his Pixies to the fore. They are some of the best fun you can have clothed.
This new little lovely from Ohana is cracking value, an affordable striking ukulele delivered free to mainland UK (highlands and islands extra). We'll set it up so that it arrives to you with the intonation as good as it can be and the action nice and low - the intonation will never be perfect on any such short scale ukulele, just to be warned!
The nut width of 34mm feels nice in the hand too. I have fat fingers, and I can play along quite nicely without splitting too many notes.
They work well in standard GCEA, and it sounds bright and bubbly. But if you tune it a little higher to Bb Eb G C it comes a little more alive with more volume and projection. So you can satisfactorily tune it to play along with your uke group, then tune it higher if you want to play solo with a crazy right hand!
This one in in the pineapple shape and features solid mahogany top, back and sides. On the scale of things - this ukulele has a bit more punch and a fuller bodied sound than the O'Nino also in solid mahogany, which has a slightly brighter sound with more ping to the treble.

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.
