Noah Monkeypod (Concert Size)

(22 customer reviews)


“The Noah Monkeypod Concert really is gorgeous. The sound is beautiful and the intonation is spot on right up the fretboard. If anyone asked me to recommend a uke, I’d certainly tell them to buy a Noah”.

    These ukes are beautiful,they look gorgeous and have a deep, harp-like sweet sound. Definitely the best thing I’ve seen for this price. Got two monkey pod concerts,one acoustic and one electro-uke and I’m in love with both. Instruments with soul.

    I bought a concert monkey pod at the first Grand Northern festival two years ago, and I have been pleased with both the construction and the sound it makes ever since. In fact the sound just gets more mellow as each year passes

    I met Matt at a local ukulele group where he was selling his ukes. At that time I thought my laminated wood uke was fine but have been pondering whether to buy a Noah ever since. Today I bought a Noah monkeypod concert uke with Fishman preamp after having another brand for a few months. These are quality instruments which are really worth the money. They also sound beautiful and look impressive. Had I known about Noahs before I bought my first uke I would have definitely bought one.

    I bought my Noah at the GSUF in October 2015 and it’s beautiful. Matt was really helpful and answered all my questions about it. It was in tune when I bought it and it’s still in tune; something I’ve not experienced with my other ukes. It plays like a bird and is very sweet sounding, so much so that I am intending to use it for my Ukulele Grade 2 exam in a month. Well done for producing such a great ukulele. By the way, it looks stunning too!

    I bought a Monkeypod concert size ukulele and haven’t been able to put it down since. This instrument oozes quality regarding looks and sound/tone and it came with Aquila strings and a top quality padded gig bag( better than most gig bags out there on the market) the Uke has a lovely warm tone and good volume. I tried living water strings on the Uke and it increased the tonal qualities and volume without being detrimental to the already great sound/tone. It certainly is great value for money and worth every penny….I mean a hand crafted uke of quality for this price – you can not lose! The customer service Matt provides selling his product is equal to this fantastic uke, Matt answered all questions promptly and gives excellent customer service and after care to a level that is seldom found these days. I am one very happy customer and I shall be returning in the near future for a electro/acoustic model.

    Got my Monkeypod Concert in the post this week. I don’t usually buy instruments without playing them first, but I read all the reviews and decided I would give one a go. So glad I did. It’s beautifully crafted, lovely to hold and makes such a sweet, pure sound, even in my none too skilled hands. It oozes quality. Thank you Matt, I am certain that it will help me to improve my playing. It’s a complete joy.

    Great chatting with Matt before receiving my concert sized Monkeypod… Excellent customer service, an enthusiastic owner and I love the Noah Ukeleles back-story…However, onto the main reason to the review…the Noah ukulele itself….. I love it! It looks fantastic with the wood grain looking sweet on front and back. It is well made and clearly done by hand so it isn’t a machined robot but rather a beautifully handcrafted instrument that shows this. It has a wonderful tone – not the loudest ukelele around but a good sound and one that is getting better and will do doubt continue to do so over the many years I intend to play it.. It arrived with a well balanced action and It holds its tune incredibly well. I have it on an equally wonderful Cooperstand not far from my armchair and just love looking at it….. As I told Matt, for me instruments are not just about the wood or the way they are made or the strings or the action or the workshop and country of origin or the story – they are about the sum total of all of that and I like buying instruments that have a certain character on all of those fronts. That is why I chose a Noah Monkeypod ukelele…..great looks, lovely wood, handcrafted, great story, small workshops in Vietnam with a strong partnership between Matt and them and importantly a good sound….. Thanks Matt and I wish Noah ukeleles every success.

    I’ve only had my Monkeypod Concert Uke for a week or so now, but am already loving it! Such a bright, full, open tone. It feels really nice, too. I got the satin finish and it looks absolutely lovely with the beautiful Monkeypod grain patterns. Matt was really helpful in getting the ukulele shipped to a friend’s place in France (I live in Switzerland) and also accommodated me in other ways as well, which I am grateful for – thanks, Matt! I don’t think you can beat one of these ukuleles in terms of value for money. It’s a solid, beautiful, lovely sounding, hand-made instrument at an almost unbelievable price. Very happy with my ukulele!!

    Had my Monkeypod concert for a few days now. Wow, looks stunning and plays great ( well as great as it can with me on the end of it!). I had a list of 2 other ukes to add to my collection. At least one of those (Pono) has now been relegated to be replaced by another Noah (exact model still being mulled over) due to the quality and value for money offered by Noah. Great service from Matt, with prompt answers to my questions. Very happy customer. Thanks Matt, keep up the good work.

    After having the concert uke for a couple of weeks , i have to add my name to the list of 5 star reviews. It feels so comfortable to play and i just enjoy tinkering around with it which in turn is improving my playing. A thumbs up for the gig bag which is an added bonus. Thank you for your friendly service.

    I have had my Monkey Pod Concert Ukulele for only a short time, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. Build quality is excellent and the tone is just a joy to listen too. A quality instrument for a very reasonable price. I am glad my research bought me to Noah. I’m sure I shall be returning if /when I want to purchase a Tenor. Thank you Matt for great customer service.

    Bought my Monkeypod Concert (with Fishman pickup) just before Christmas, and absolutely love playing it. Build quality is excellent and the uke just sounds fantastic on its own and also when plugged in. My other few ukes sadly haven’t been looked at since! Will definitely be back when the itch for another uke comes! Thanks again to Matt for your great service during the whole buying process.

    My second Noah Ukulele – Bought a Rosewood Spruce Soprano earlier this year which I was blown away with. Bought the Monkeypod Concert more recently and alternate between the two.
    Now I can’t decide which one I love the most.

  15. Russell George (verified owner)

    Superficially, I was first attracted by the looks of this stunning instrument. Once I took the plunge and bought one I realised looks are only one of the virtues of this wonderful uke. Sound, playability, name a quality you would want from your ukulele and this delivers it in bucket loads. It has also cured me of my Ukulele Acquisition Syndrome. I bought a Noah spruce and rosewood soprano at the same time, don’t want any more now because I cannot see how they could improve on either of these two. Matt was excellent too, very helpful, knowledgeable and made the purchase painfree and pleasurable.

    Just had my Monkey concert just 2 weeks now, a late Christmas present off my wife. It’s my first ukulele and I am absolutely over the moon with it, as well as looks good the sound is fantastic. Thanks to Matt for his help in my choice and also for their prompt service, well recommended!!

  17. She Peng Tham

    I learnt about the Noah ukes from a fingerpicking course and I was not disappointed. The purchase process was smooth, I got good advice from Matt which of the Concert models was best for me, and even put on a low g string for me at no extra costs! It is so unbelievable to be able to buy a solid wood handmade uke that produces such nice sounds at the price. It’s also great well as knowing that I have bought from a small independent business. I am desperately trying to stop myself from getting a soprano size as well but I might fail!

    Great communication from Matt during the order and delivery process. When the Ukulele arrived it was well packed and protected. I have been taking lessons for about 18 months but had a break recently to focus on study for a 2nd career. During my lessons which went from meeting up in clubs to fully remote Zoom sessions when the pandemic hit I had heard the name of Noah Ukuleles mentioned quite a few times. My Mother bought a Martin Koa Ukulele for my 50th Birthday which is superb, and I had bought a Luna Soprano and Tanglewood Concert which are very good Ukuleles and good fun to play. As soon as I got the Noah Ukulele out of the box I was pretty blown away just how good it looks. As this is another birthday present I could not wait until July so tuned it and started playing a few songs. I was even more blown away by the sound, sustain and overall quality of the instrument. There is no doubt the reviews left by many Noah owners are spot on. I am looking forward to resuming lessons so I can do this instrument justice. I am sure my tutor will be excited to hear it. thanks for the great service.

    I received my Monkeypod Concert ukulele last week and I have to say that I am really, really impressed by it. It is absolutely beautiful! It is fabulous in both looks and sound and it is a pleasure to pick it up and play. The customer service from Matt was absolutely first class and I would have no hesitation in recommending Noah Ukuleles to anyone. I have no doubt that this ukulele is going to be a lifelong companion.

    I bought a monkeypod concert last August. It has beautiful looks, a wonderful sound quality and it’s built really well.
    I can recommend this for anyone who is looking for a high quality instrument that is easy to play and lovely to listen to. Great work Matt!

    I purchased a monkeypod concert ukulele for my sister as a present. It was beautiful wood, a real work of art and sounded amazing. Matt was extremely helpful and sent photos prior to purchase. I highly recommend Noah ukuleles!

    I bought a monkeypod concert ukulele recently and absolutely love it, the sound is fantastic, and is has really great sustain for a concert uke. It looks lovely too, and it being handmade makes it extra special. Definitely one to treasure! The service from Matt has been absolutely brilliant, the only problem I have now is not buying another Noah uke in the future!
