Covid19 Update

Here at the Southern Ukulele Store, we are taking our responsibilities during the Coronavirus outbreak very seriously.

We are all washing our hands regularly, and have implemented distancing policies to minimise contact between staff members as much as possible. Each member of staff is very well aware of the latest government advice, and is only coming in each day if they are symptom free.


As of today, Monday 23rd March, the showroom will be closed until further notice. We have to minimise the risk to our customers and staff as much as possible during these difficult times. Thanks in advance for your understanding.

Website and Telephone

The website and telephones are open for business as usual. Over the last fortnight, an increasingly large proportion of our business has been by phone or website. We are very skilled and experienced at getting instruments to customers all around the world in top top condition, and in a timely fashion.

Please, call us on +44 (0)1202 430820 for any advice if you are unsure of an online purchase. And if you need anything, from an in hand description of the smell of a uke, or a sound sample of your shortlisted favourites, we'll do our best to accommodate this.

If you are keen to try a particular instrument then we would be happy to hold it with a refundable £50 deposit until it is safer to travel again.

Emails, and contact through socal media, will all be answered as you have come to expect from us.

Our Youtube channel features hundreds of detailed sound samples and we will endeavor to generate new content and samples where possible that may help you so thankfully, it has never been easier to shop from the comfort of your own home.

Courier and postal services around Europe are currently still operating normally, although we are monitoring developments daily so should this change suddenly and we are unable to guarantee a delivery to you, we will be in touch immediately following your order to let you know.

Buy with confidence


You can buy online, or by telephone, whichever suits you best. All our ukuleles are inspected when they arrive with us, set up and adjusted as required, then checked again before we send them, to ensure that you get them in tip-top condition. Buy with confidence!


We try to ensure that all products advertised on this website are in stock. Our website operates real time stock management, so if we have only one of a particular item in stock, as soon as you add it to your basket the website will show that item as Out of Stock. Do not panic! If you see the item you require in your shopping cart, you have purchased the last one and it is yours.


However, occasionally items may have just been sold and the website might not have been updated, in which case, we'll contact you immediately with alternative suggestions.
