Cole Clark Ukuleles

Cole Clark Ukuleles

Cole Clark are an Australian guitar maker who also have a range of ukuleles (called Ukelady). Most of their ukes are made from Australian Blackwood - from the same family of wood (Acacia) as koa wood.

As far as I'm aware, they are only available in Australia. You can find some for sale here.

    our local panama city music store has one, they also had it listed on ebay for $660. I played it in their store, it is superbly made and a real player, but at that price it should be.

    This is an amazing instrument. I have been using it on stage all over the US and Australia. It has an incredible pick up system that delivers exquisite sound through every system that I’ve worked with, which is rare for a Ukelele. From major outdoor concerts to small room studio work this instrument has been relentless in its quality and playability. The pick-up system is the real secret to its success. It sounds better than any other Uke I’ve played through a PA. The strings it shipped with were not bad but with quality strings its amazing. Its not a beginner Uke unless you have cash to burn. Its high-end for those who care about how theyu sound. You’d be lucky to find one under $800. I also love its name – Ukelady :) plug one in and you will be blown away!

    Does this Uke sound just as good without being plugged in?

    When I got back into ukeleles a couple of years ago I tried a few ukes and unfortunately got hooked on a Cole Clark Jack Tenor before I saw the price tag. It was a lot but I have not regretted it. My other instruments have collected dust since then. As for Marty’s question, it sounds fantastic unplugged (I have no call to plug mine in), rich in tone.

    I have a Cole Clark (Jack Tenor) I have mixed feelings about it now after having it for 4 years and rairly playing it. The action is super high real hard to play up the neck. You can shush it but the lowest saddle hight is still too high. I had to sand the corners on the nut all over it was sharp and got in your way changing chords down low. Tone was really dull and lifeless with Aquilla string so I just put it in the cupboard and forgot it. BUT now with ORCAS ( fluro carbon strings) it’s not too bad and I’m playing it for the first time. But action is still too high.At over $1000 Aus I’d expect more.

Got something to say?
