Here you'll find just a handful of what we think are the best ukuleles available for beginners to the ukulele who need an instrument that's reasonably priced, and easy on the ears too.




Made by the classical guitar company Córdoba, the Protégé is their entry level model, designed specifically for the beginner player. With a mahogany concert size body, and a mother of pearl print around the soundhole, the Protégé sounds good, and is reasonable at $159. The protege doesn't come with a gig bag included, but gig bags are available for $27.95.


ANUENUE AQUA One & Only Concert

Another beginner option from one of our favourite brands here at Lord Uke is the aNueNue Aqua series. This all mahogany soprano offering from Aqua is perfect for the beginner that wants a simple ukulele that sounds great. Included with the One and Only is a premium padded gig bag making this ukulele, in our opinion, one of the best value ukuleles for $189. 

Also available in soprano size for $139.


kala makala tenor

This Makala ukulele, belonging to Kala's beginner-focused range is our recommendation for the player who finds soprano or concert size ukes difficult to play, or if you're just looking for a great beginner tenor size ukulele. The Makala MK-T has an all mahogany construction, and has a sturdy build. $99. 

Also available in soprano and concert sizes.
