Vidala Concert Sized Ukuleles
The Vidala ukulele is a wooden ukulele - not a painted plywood or plastic uke. The neck is made of mahogany, the fingerboard is rosewood and the rest of the body is made of sappelle, which is an African wood often used in guitar making. It has very good quality machine heads so they stay in tune. It’s a really good size for students in elementary school. The Vidala ukulele has Aquilla strings – the industry standard. We are thrilled to be able to offer this quality instrument to Canadian schools at reasonable prices.
