You wouldn’t guess it from the name, but Ortega are a German ukulele manufacturer. They are primarily a classical guitar company (they’ve been making them since 1996) but have a range of 6 ukuleles.

The only place I’ve seen this ukuleles for sale is on Thomann, but I’ve used them a couple of times and they’re a reliable company. I live in the UK and they delivered quickly. My only complaint was the shipped a lone thumb pick in a box big enough for a bowling ball.

Ortega RU-10

The RU10 is Ortega’s entry level uke. But it’s solid mahogany so a step above most company’s beginner ukuleles.


Size: Soprano
Construction: Solid mahogany top, back and sides
Fretboard: Sonokeling (apparently, it’s a cheaper relative of rosewood)
Bridge: Sonokeling
Neck: Mahogany
Tuners: Friction

Buy it on Thomann

On Amazon UK

    the Ortega RFU11ZE is a great uke, a beautiful clear sound, i know, it isn’t a martin but for the price (€180,-) a very good uke

    I am a beginner so I don’t know much about different ukuleles but I am sooo happy with my RFU11Z. It’s beautiful and sounds great.

Got something to say?
