Introducing the Moselele Bambookuleles.

Our ukuleles are based on the principle, that a good ukulele shouldn’t cost too much. We know that people coming along to groups like ours are tempted by the cheaper end of the ukulele range but often get frustrated by the quality of the sound and the ability to stay in tune.

We recognised that that buying your first decent ukulele can be quite confusing due to the sheer number of different manufacturers.

We decided that we wanted to create our own ukulele that wouldn’t break the bank but fulfilled the basic things we look for an instrument. This means that if you buy a Bambookulele you get:-

  • An instrument made from a sustainable wood
  • Geared machine heads to keep it in tune
  • Strap buttons to hang a strap off
  • A quality finish that  you wouldn’t normally find in this price range
  • Rosewood finger board
  • Mahogany neck

Moselele Bambookuleles come in three sizes, Tenor, Concert and Soprano. We also have gig bags to keep your Ukulele free from damage, we’ll throw one of these in with the Electro uke..

You don’t have to take our word for the quality, you can read a review on gotaukulele.com, this is a review of the original Bambookulele.

 

This is what the original looks like.



 

The Moselele Bambookulele costs:-

  • £60 for a Soprano- Free postage 
  • £65 for a Concert- Free postage 
  • £70 for a Tenor- Free postage
  • £19 for a gig bag – Free postage 

 

You can buy the Bambookulele from Ebay or Amazon or directly from us (sorry about the size of the images on the products page, we’re working on that).

    Hi there,

    I am looking for an ukulele for the level of beginners. I want to learn a song actually but I am not sure which type of the ukuleles that suit me the best.

    I have no knowledge of this kind of instrument, but I am looking to buy one that can play with songs in a nice tune.

    Could you kindly tell me the approximate prices of a suitable ukulele as well?

    Cheers.

      Well our obvious answer would be, we sell one that it good for a beginner. Though I assume you’ve seen that as you’ve found your way to this page.

      As with all musical instruments you get what you pay for. You can get a uke for about £30 and they are a good way of finding out whether you’ll stick with the instrument or not but you’ll also find that these are tricky to keep in tune and they will sound a bit flat.

      This was our motivation for coming up with our own one.

      Also remember there are essentially three sizes of uke, soprano (which is most common and quite small), concert (slightly larger and the size we have gone with for the Bambookulele) and Tenor (larger again than a concert uke). The different sizes tend to give a deeper, louder sound and have bigger frets which you might find makes it easier to play.

      We recommend you buy one of ours but we would say that wouldn’t we?

          Hello,

          I’m afraid they are temporarily unavailable. To be honest sales were much better than we expected and we ran out. We are expecting another shipment in about two weeks time. In two weeks we will also be offering them in Soprano size as well as Concert.

          We can let you know when they arrive if you want.

        Hello – I saw your bamboo concert uke ages ago on Amazon, really liked it and put one in my shopping basket. I thought however that in order to keep my wife happy I really ought to sell my existing concert uke.
        GOOD NEWS -After advertising it for ages I sold it yesterday!!!
        BAD NEWS – Both Amazon and you are out of stock of concert ukes!!!
        Please let me know as soon as you have more in stock.
        I am prepared to pay for one now to ensure that I can get one.

        I want to buy a tenor uke and gig bag but when I tried your shop I couldn’t seem to find check out/basket… in any event I have a question re delivery…
        I live in Whitby N Yorks and GPO is fine but couriers have “local” depots that mean a 70 mile round trip if I am not home to take delivery…

        Happy to pay the extra to have GPO delivery if necessary.

      Hi there

      I just wondered how suitable these ukuleles were for left-handed conversion? Is it just a matter of swapping the strings around or would the nut and/or bridge require any attention? If they are okay for left handed use then I would very much like to get my name down on the list for a concert sized one when they become available please.

      Cheers

      Bypassed Amazon and went straight to the Moselele site to order my Bambookelele after an extensive search for the best uke in terms of quality for money although the deciding factors were the Amazon reviews that unusually for Amazon contained no negative reviews (there’s normally somebody you’ll never please)and the video review on the Got a ukulele site. Having opted for the tenor bambookelele I waited in excited aticipation over the weekend for its arrival Monday and it arrived as hoped ready for me when I got in from work and wow what a little stunner it is, it far outweighed my expectations and sings a lovely tune. A uke playing buddy of mine popped round Tuesday evening and his first words on seeing it were “sh*t, how much did that set you back!!!” but was more shocked when I told him and had to be shown the receipt to be convinced so thankyou Moselele group for coming up with the bambookelele for us mere mortals on a limited budget who can now enjoy our uke progression with a decent but well priced and beautiful looking ukelele.

        Hi,

        Thanks for buying so much stuff off of us. We do have vague plans for a Baritone ukulele which means we will have the bags as well, it’s just a case of getting the money together. We probably won’t be making soparino bags. We had a load of Soprano bags made nearly two years ago and we’ve still got most of those so I reckon the market for Soparino bags would be even smaller.

        Thanks

      I have a question, I bought a moselele bambookuele from amazon link is here https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B01MQIYJWB/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

      It says that its a baritone which was the one I purchased but Im having a extremely difficult time tuning it. I looked at your website and it says that the ones you make are Tenor, concert, and soprano. Is there any way you can tell me which one I have since on amazon it says baritone which I dont think is true. My model number is ESU-B170 if that is helpful. Thank you!

        Hello,

        Yes, that’s a Baritone uke. What is the problem you’re having with tuning it? It’s strung with Aquila high G strings so it should be tuned gCEA. Most tuners should be ok with that.

        Thanks

          I was able to tune it, my next question would be since it is stringed to GCEA, which chords do I use? The ones for a baritone or the standard ukulele chords. Thank you for your help.

    Can you please tell me if your bambookulele is made with laminated or solid wood.

      Hello Brian,

      The simple answer is that it is a laminate. All Bamboo Ukuleles are a form of laminate as bamboo itself just isn’t big enough to make a ukulele in a single piece. Each bit of bamboo is glued together, side by side, to create a single sheet. So some people would say it’s equally valid to claim that it’s solid wood (even though bamboo is technically a grass).

      That probably only confuses the issue but nothing is simple in the crazy world of bamboo.

      Something else I’ve forgotten to put in the description is that it the neck is made from mahogany with a rosewood finger board.

      Thanks

      Sorry for the delay in replying. We can ship to the US but when I’ve looked into it before it effectively doubles the price of the uke. I reckon you can probably get something a bit better for double the price. Though you’re welcome to give it a go if you want.

    Hi,
    I am a complete novice and also unfortunately a left hander. I am looking to buy a concert size uke and am wondering if your model would be suitable. From what I have gather not all ukes can be restrung for left handlers. If it is possible is there a charge for having this done?
    Thanks.

      Hi Stan,

      At a push it could be done but I’d probably refuse to do it. I’m left handed as well and the uke, like many stringed instruments, is actually easier to play if you are left handed. The majority of dexterous work you have to do is fretting chords with your left hand, so you already have an advantage over most right handed people.

      We have a number of left handed people that come to our group and none of them play it left handed.

      Give it a try.

    Hi Daz,
    Thanks for your prompt reply. I’m afraid I have tried in the past trying to play guitars right handed and am afraid I just cannot do it. I am reasonably handy and think I could manage reversing the strings but my worry is with the bridge and nut. Would the nut need any modifications with regards to the diameters of the strings and is the bridge of the straight type or could it cause me a problem?
    Perhaps if I was younger I might have more of a chance to brainwash myself into right handedness but at 70 I’m afraid there is not much of a chance.
    I know there are some dealers who will do alterations on certain ukes but I feel their models are not as attractive as yours.
    Kind regards,
    Stan

      Just to echo Stan here, I’m a lefty who’s been playing lefty guitar for the past 17 years and lefty uke for the past 4 years. I’m in need of a good value, good volume concert uke as my soprano is just too quiet when alongside guitars. I came across you guys from the “got a uke” review and the bamboolele fits the bill perfectly. I would, however, need it left handed the same as all my other instruments. If the nut and bridge are symmetrical then I’d be happy to restring it myself but if not then it would be great if you could set it up left handed.

      Many thanks,

    I bought a bambookele some months ago it was a soprano. I soon learnt to play and got the bug. I have bought a couple of more expensive ukelele’s thinking more money better quality, better sound. It simply isn’t true, my little bambookele still stands head and shoulders above the opposition. Tone, volume and clarity are far superior.
    I removed the bridge bone and filed it down to improve the action for a lighter touch and it’s perfect, like a new instrument! It’s even kind to the environment and they gave me a free song to learn!
    Thanks Moselele you guys are the best by far!

    Hey,

    Do you guys know when you’ll have concert ukes and gig bags back in stock. Really like what you’ve done here, been trying to grab a bargain on ebay for ages but I’d happy pay full price for one of these judging by the reviews their getting.

    Hi … Just trying to clarify. Is the bamboo used in the construction of your Uke bodies solid? ie. is it only made from heat fused bamboo fibres? or is it a bamboo face on some plywood?

    Many thanks

      Hi,

      It’s not only made from bamboo. It’s a bamboo laminate over a plywood skeleton but it isn’t just stuck on a plywood top. I would not claim it is the equivalent of a solid wood uke.

      Thanks

      Hi Colin,

      I’m afraid that we had a run on Concert Gig Bags this weekend and we’ve run out. We went to the Grand Northern Ukulele Festival and that took all of our stock. We’re expecting more in the first week of October. Sorry.

      Thanks for letting me know about the web site. I had enabled a setting that I shouldn’t have and it’s likely it is fixed now. I’m just testing it now.

      Hi Eric,

      Yes, we do ship to the US but we tend to do it through Amazon (amazon.co.uk) as they’re easier to set shipping rates. Currently shipping is about £25 but as the exchange rate seems utterly broken at the moment I’m not sure what that is in USD (though it’s probably good for you).

      Three things to think about. We’ve run out of Concert ukes (until October), it works out better value for money if you buy a gig bag as well and most importantly we’re shutting down sales on Saturday morning for a week as we’re off on holiday.

        I think you’re talking about the bridge. That’s the wooden part.
        I was wondering about the white bit slotted on the bridge that holds the strings up. It’s usually plastic, bone or some sort of bone imitation material.

        Thanks.

          Hi,

          Sorry, yes that’s me not paying attention. I’ve been reliably told by our factory that it is bone but I’m not convinced. I’m pretty sure it is plastic.

          Thanks

          Daz

            Yeah, I remember the gotaukulele.com review also mentioned a plastic saddle. The reason I was curious is I received my bambookulele last week, and when I was changing the strings, I took out the saddle and tapped on it with my nail a bit, and it felt harder than the usual plastics.
            Since the factory says it’s bone, maybe I got a uke from a newer batch that were fitted with bone saddles?

            Plastic or bone, I’m happy with the bambookulele (tenor model) anyway!

            Cheers!

          • Daz
            November 25, 2014

            Hi,

            The saddle’s haven’t changed in all the time that we’ve been producing them. So it is possible that they’ve been bone all along (as we were told). I admit I’ve not taken the saddle out to look too closely at it and just assumed that it looked like plastic.

            I’m glad you like it. We’re still really proud of what we’ve managed to put together.

            Cheers

    Just wanted to let you know that I received my tenor ukulele yesterday. It’s very well put together and sounds just great.

    I’m in the US, so I thought I’d share my buying experience.

    First off, I ordered through amazon.co.uk. My regular US login and password worked just fine so ordering was seamless and the pounds to dollars conversion worked just fine.

    Cost in US dollars including shipping was $150ish and it took about 3 weeks for the ukulele to arrive at my door.

    At this price point, this tenor is a great value for the money. I sampled ukes at my local ukulele group and shopped music stores locally before making this purchase and build quality, appearance, and above all sound are a solid cut above the rest when comparing dollar to dollar.

    Can’t wait to show my new acquisition off at my next local ukulele meetup. My group has already enjoyed the Moselele songbooks and now they’ll get to drool over my not so run of the mill bambookulele.

    Thanks!

      Hi Eric,

      Thanks for the feedback and I’m really glad it got there OK. I always get a bit worried posting out to the US as it does take a long time to get there but that’s the only way it’s cost effective to send them.

      Good luck with it and I hope we’ll have some decent songs for you when we finish our next songbook in February.

    Just to say I got the soprano a few months ago and it is an awesome instrument. Lovely tone and great quality. Much better than other cheap ukes. (I needed to lower the action but that’s fair enough.) Really recommended! Ben

    PS: Do get the gig bag at the same time (its a great bag) as the bambookulele doesn’t necessarily fit in 3rd party soprano gig bags, its a little too fat.

    Just received a Soprano, and it is great value for money. I am not normally a big fan of Aquila strings, and was wondering if anyone has tried anything else instead. I know Aquila have a reputation for making cheaper ukes sound better, but I would be interested to hear if anyone has tried other brands.

      Hi,

      I know what you mean. Aquila are good strings but not to everyone’s taste. I really like Living Water and D’Addrio strings. Most of my ukes have been changed to those, they’re a little brighter than Aquila. We use the Aquila strings on our ukes because they are the ones that most people recognise and ask for.

    Hiya, I’m going to be getting a soprano ukulele, however I have noticed only one strap button, what type of strap do I need, forgive me if this is a silly question its just the strap I’m getting needs two buttons. Is there a certain type of strap I need, and if so how would you put it on?

    • Daz
      March 7, 2015

      Hi,

      Any mandolin/ukulele strap will do it. Ukulele straps don’t tend to connect to two buttons as the straps would have to really long. They usually attached to the button on the back and then loop over the headstock.

      That keeps the uke more stable as well.

      I recommend these.

      http://www.amazon.co.uk/Neotech-8001002-mandolin-ukulele-strap/dp/B000EELBQ4

      They are a bit more expensive than standard mandolin/ukulele straps but they’re really comfortable. I’m the picture you should be able to make out the looped end.

      I hope that helps.

    Hi there. I’ve been drooling over the reviews of your concert bambookulele for a few months now and, just as I get the wherewithal together to buy one, I see you have an electro-acoustic! Be still, my beating heart!

    Before I start raiding the penny-jar and sofa-diving, can I just check a couple of things with you? (If I’m being dense and missing already published info, please forgive).

    1) Is it as loud an acoustic player as the standard concert bambookulele?

    2) I know you’ve explained before that bamboo has to be a laminate as it’s never going to be broad enough to build a solid ‘wood’ uke. The electro-concert is billed as solid. I am now confused. Please explain again as if to an inattentive child…

    Thanks for your time. P

      Hi,

      Yes, the electro ukulele is just as loud as the standard uke. It’s got the same size sound chamber as a concert uke. As you say all Bamboo needs to be a laminate of sort. With the standard uke the fused bamboo is laid over a plywood body so is like a normal laminate uke. With our solid wood bamboo uke it is the fused bamboo that makes up the body.

      I hope that makes sense.

      Hi,

      If you placed an order today (before 1pm) I can get it out on next day delivery (that’s an additional £7). We use UPS for next day delivery and they don’t work weekends, that means that anything we put through them on a Friday only gets delivered on a Monday. Our standard delivery is 3 days so would get there on Monday.

    Hi Daz, My Moselele arrived this morning, a day ahead of schedule, I love it, the wife was impressed as well once she’d calmed down over me buying it. Lovely sound, (the uke not the wife), good construction and action with nice clean notes all the way up the fret. I don’t have an acoustic amp at the moment so just playing it through a tiny pa system but I reckon it is going to be great when I get it through a proper set up. Acoustically it’s far superior to my Stagg, and it looks magnificent! Thanks also for all the help via e mail, on a sunday too!

If you are happy with it we’d really appreciate a product review. Amazon always prompt people to write reviews of us as sellers but very few people get to see those. The product reviews really help to convince people to buy the ukes

    I am so pleased that I decided on this Uke it is everything I wanted.I must have a Concert next just to add to the group

    Hi Daz
    I’ve had my concert Bambookelele for a year now, and I am still in love. The sound is fantastic, the finish still looks like new (even though it is well played). I was lucky enough to be in the UK last year and have it delivered to my Aunty so I could collect it. It survived the trip home to Australia in the hold after I carefully packed layers of clothes inside the case with it and had no ill effects – didn’t even need retuning. Not many new ukes would have coped as well.

    If anyone has any doubts – it is a joy to play and to hear, I am really happy to have bought it.

    Hi!

    I’m thinking about getting the electro bambooukulele, but I’m quite fussy about ukes, so I was wondering if there are any brick and mortar shops that stock it so I could have a go/give it a listen first? I’ve heard it played on the gotaukulele review and it sounded great, but I’d really like to hear it in person before dropping over £100 on it, especially as I’ve never heard it plugged in.

    I’m in Liverpool, if that helps!

    Intrigued by advert on Facebook that said you had cut down on panel in new electro. Still active pickup, but no controls? Does that mean it’s suitable for left hand conversion? And where does battery go? Can’t tell from photos

    • Daz
      November 10, 2015

      Leave a Reply

      Hello,

      That’s something that I’d not thought about. There is a volume control that is a small wheel inside of the sound hole (along the top of it). The battery (9v) is in a small pouch inside the body attached to the bottom by velcro. In terms of suitability for restringing for left hand it might be viable. I don’t think it makes a great deal of difference if the volume wheel runs along the top or the bottom of the soundhole. I’ll have a look to see what implications it might have for the battery but as 9v batteries don’t weigh much I doubt that makes a great deal of difference either.

      The removal of the panels was supposed to be purely aesthetic as people wanted an electro uke that didn’t look like one but left handedness might be an additional bonus.

      Thanks

      Hi,

      It should be good to go straight away. Well it will need tuning so I’d make sure you have a tuner. You can just download an app on your phone that will listen out and tell you when the string is in tune. As with all stringed instruments they take a bit of time to hold their tuning as the strings stretch. Other than that it shouldn’t need any other adjustments.

    Hi,
    I’m considering the concert and electro– a few questions, if you don’t mind. Do you set up the ukes (lowering action, etc) before shipping? Are there any differences between the original reviewed by GotAUkulele and the current concert? Also, this is a bit silly, but I really liked the look of the electro though I don’t want a pickup, so would you consider doing custom alterations– either a pickup-less electro, or a concert with the matte finish, gold tuners, and maybe the herringbone edge binding? And if so, how much would you be looking for?
    Thanks!

      Hi,

      We don’t do anything with the action of the ukes before we send them out. Action tends to be quite a subjective thing and once it’s lowered it can’t be raised again. We do check over all of them before we send them out.

      The electro ukes we are selling now are not the same as the ones reviewed on Got A Ukulele. These don’t have a tuner.

      We can’t do any custom alterations. These are factory produced, which is why we can sell for the price that we do. We would have to get a run done to make changes and I’d have to be quite sure we could sell a significant quantity of them.

      Sorry.

      Hello,

      Actually we are desperately looking for a US distributor but so far not having a great deal of luck. It’s a shame as we get many many enquiries from the US. We do ship individual ukes to the US but don’t put the shipping on the website as it varies so much. It changes down to location in the US and based on the exchange rate. As you might appreciate our current situation with exchange rates unpredictable to say the least. Generally shipping works out at around the £30 mark ($36). Which is a lot considering how much the actual ukes cost.

      Hopefully we can figure out a more effective way to do this if we can find someone in the US to work with.

    Daz, have you tried Amazon US? I would think the good sales and reviews from Amazon UK would encourage them. I mean, in a way it is already their product. Or is there no coordination between the two?

    I tried to look up distributors of British products here, but only found food.

    Trying to think of something else, but Amazon seems to make the most sense. Maybe all of us in the US who want a bamboouke should write them letters … I wonder if that would help!

      Hi,

      That would be the best solution but you can’t ship from outside the US directly to Amazon warehouses. Products need to be cleared at a point of entry. That’s why I need someone within the US to be able to manage clearance and then get them to where they need to go. Ideally that would be someone that understands ukuleles so they can carry out the same checks that we do. We’ve got some leads on possible people but there are issues about price. We charge so little because we have no middlemen, we get them straight from the factory and sell direct to customers. Having someone else in the middle of that is likely to have an impact. We’re working on it but it’s probably going to be slow.

    Oh yes, I see how the middleman could jack up the price. I hope this problem can be solved. I still want a bamboo uke, but I just am a little concerned that if anything went wrong with the shipping it would be hard to return it. I know there is a slight chance, but from reading a lot of reviews, sometimes ukes do have to be returned.

    Hi Daz,

    My tenor arrived safe and sound here in Canada after I ended up paying UPS another $38 for import duties. (Not your fault – they are scammers). Hurts a bit as the price already includes VAT so we are effectively paying tax twice!!

    The ukulele looks great apart from a very small 1/4″ area of bubbling in the varnish which I can live with. It’s otherwise perfect.

    It is really nicely finished overall and the colour is amazing. it sounds really good too. The fret ends are smooth and I love the wooden label inside with the name burnt in. Nice touch. Strings are still stretching as you said they do so having to tune it regularly but looking forward to taking it with me to my ukulele group next weekend.

      Yes, we’ve got some on the way but they’ve got slightly delayed. I hope they will be here in the next few days.

    Hi, I don’t suppose you are going to reintroduce the electro tenor by any chance?

      Hello,

      I’m afraid not. We really liked them but there were a combination of things that worked against them. They sold much slower than the regular ukes so it meant we didn’t get the costs covered particularly quickly. Also the exchange rate is so bad now we would need to charge considerably more for them and I’m not sure people would be willing to pay that amount of money.

      On the plus side we will have Baritone Ukes on Monday.

      Sorry if that was a convoluted way of saying no.

    Hello!

    I’ve been considering a bambookulele fire some time and might take the plunge in a month or so – am not one for dashing about, clearly! I’m a lefty – so you do lefty versions, rather than just restrung regular versions?

    Thank you!

      Hello,

      Sorry we don’t. We get so few requests for left handed instruments that I’m not sure we could get production run paid for.

      Sorry, that’s not much help is it?

    Hi. I am interested in one of your concert ukuleles and would like to know what inspection or set up is carried out prior to delivery please. Thanks

      That’s a tricky one to answer as everyone has a very different idea of what set up means. I look over every uke that goes out (even the ones that are delivered by Amazon). I check for any problems including cosmetic issues, buzzes or rattles or any issues with the intonation. We check the tuners but don’t send the ukes out tuned. We used to but because they’re new instruments they will not stay in tune until they’ve settled and it is better to leave some slack in the strings whilst travelling. We do not do anything with the height of the action. That is down to personal taste.

      I hope that helps.

    My concert arrived today, wasn’t far off tuned straight out of the box and the action is spot on for me. In a previous life I played bass guitar and a bit of electric guitar too haven’t really touched either in a few years. I’ve been playing a £12 gear 4 music soprano uke which was bought as a joke really and with its original strings it’s not fantastic. Needless to say the upgrade to the bambookulele is very noticeable! Now I’ve got something that doesn’t sound like a toy I’m joining a local uke group as I’ve fallen for the instrument somewhat. Thanks guys!

    Would love to purchase the concert uke and gig bag for hubby’s birthday but Amazon only has the soprano and eBay only the tenor. Do you ship to USA? And if so, how do I go about ordering? How much would shipping costs be?
    Thanks!

      Hello,

      That’s a lot of questions. We do sell the Concert uke and gig bag on Amazon. We’re phasing out selling the ukes on their own which is why there are just a few Sopranos left on the Amazon listings. We sell all of the ukes as a package with the bag.

      We don’t really sell anything on Ebay any more. It’s not that popular so we tend to use it if we’ve got some cheaper ukes to get rid of. The Tenor uke on Ebay has some slight cosmetic damage.

      We can ship to the US. The cost is entirely dependent on whereabouts you are in the US. We can do that as a direct Paypal payment or we can send an invoice (once we’ve figured out postage) that you can pay with a credit card. I’d warn you that shipping to the US is usually between £30 and £40 and you are likely to get customs charges on top of that. It won’t work out that cheap overall.

      Let me know if you would like me to get a shipping price worked out.

      Many thanks

    Hi,
    I bought a Concert with a bag from Amazon, unfortunately I should have got a Tenor. There are only concerts available on Amazon. Can I return the instrument to you and pay the difference for a Tenor?
    Thanks

      Hello,

      Thanks for getting in touch. If you’ve bought the uke through Amazon then you would have to return it to them. They manage all of our stock through their site. We don’t have any more Tenors available on Amazon at the moment. You might be able to arrange a return to Amazon and then buy a Tenor through our site but at the moment I think we have three in stock. They’ll probably go quite quickly. We’ll have more Tenors at Amazon quite soon but it might be a few weeks.

      Cheers

      Hi,

      We do have some Concerts left in stock, five I think.

      I’m not really sure what is going on with shipping at the moment. I’m going to try and get some orders out tomorrow but he courier we use is a bit vague on whether they are collecting. It could be that things won’t start moving again until Wednesday.

      I hope that helps.

    hi, I’ve got a tenor moselele almost three months ago. I am quite happy with its quality and sound but recently I figured out the the back of its body is not flat. it became arched. I don’t remember if it was like that in the first place or there is a reason like humidity that made it like that. I will be happy if you make it clear to me and if something is wrong, is there a way to fix it?

      Hi,

      All our ukes come with a bowled back. It’s a device that is used to give a slightly larger volume to the sound chamber. Using bamboo there is a great deal more flexibility to add things like that.

      I hope that puts your mind at rest.

      Cheers

    Hi,
    I got a Bambookulele for Xmas. I am chuffed with it, but have a quick question:
    Would you recommend lowering the action, or just leaving as is?

      Hi,

      I don’t know really. Action is all down to personal taste. Sometimes it’s not great to have action that is too low as it means you can fret notes you don’t expect to much too easily. I’ve never lowered the action on a uke yet but I know some people have.

    Hello there,

    I just received my baritone – thanks.
    I intended to try it as an octave low uke but that was not as successful as I hoped(!)
    I could do with a replacement nut, as I had to adjust the original for the classic guitar strings I used. I realise I can make another, and have done in the past, but just a correctly slotted, correct width nut to pop in would be so much easier. It plays now, but there’s just a little buzz.
    I have to say, before I adjusted it it was set up nicely for standard tuning.
    Cheers!

      Hello,

      We don’t have spare parts for the ukes we sell. As we’re a ukulele group rather than a manufacturer all of the assembly of the ukes is done by the factory we work with in China. I might be able to get an appropriate nut from them but I’ve no idea how much that is likely to cost nor how long it would take to get here.

      I can make enquiries if you like.

      Many thanks

        It was worth asking as you might have had a buckket of nuts, saddles and winders “just in case”.
        No problem then, I’ll get myself a blank and do a little carving!

    Hi Daz, just received a Tenor I bought off of Amazon. Are you only doing the strap button on the butt now, I thought they came with 2 strap buttons, one on the neck as well – you can see the 2nd strap button in the pictures? Thanks Andy

      Hi,

      We don’t do ukes with two strap buttons. We did have a few three or four years ago where the factory had put two on by accident. We got that sorted out with them. I don’t remember having taken pictures of those. I’ll check that.

      The two strap buttons don’t really work with a uke, because the body is so small you need to buy a ridiculously long strap to make them work. I’ve not come across anyone that makes a strap long enough.

        No probs Daz, all of the images in your shop you can just see the 2nd strap button peeking out from below the 12th fret. It isn’t a problem for me, they are a great sounding uke and an absolute bargain! Intonation is spot on, I might lower the action a tiny amount, but it is the first uke I have had that hasn’t required some work to make it spot on, and some of those have cost twice as much.

    Hi, I love my electro bamboo ukulele and play it all the time. I just wondered if there is a certain way to change the battery to make it easier as I find it hard to reach? Also if you rarely plug it into an amp is it advisable to remove the battery until you do? Many thanx, JackP
    Ps. The songbooks are amazing!

      Hi,

      I’m not sure there is a particularly easy way to remove it. It’s a little easier if you loosen the strings, and you can give the cable that’s attached to the battery a bit of a pull. You shouldn’t need to unplug it when you’re not amped up. It only draws power when you have a lead plugged in.

      I hope that helps.

      Hi,

      I’m afraid we don’t ship to Australia. Because of the restriction on importing anything made out of bamboo we can’t find any courier that will deal with us.
