When it comes to music, everyone wants in on it. The average Jane and Joe doesn’t just want to listen to music, they want to play it. Nearly everybody wants to play something like piano, guitar, drums, or of course the wonderful ukulele. Because so many folks long to be musicians, the music instrument industry is booming.

This Luna is one of the best concert ukuleles for under $100. One of the surprising features at this price range is the monochromatic ornamentation. Of course design usually can make a uke cost more, yet here we are still in the $100 range. It is made with laminated mahogany with a satin natural finish, a walnut fretboard, and it comes with a gig bag. Luna is a very popular brand and they make some cheap good quality ukuleles. The design is one the biggest pros or cons for this model, some may like it others maybe not. For those wanting a real Hawaiian uke this sure gives off that vibe. To be honest the artwork and finish make it appear to be worth more than $100.
“Beautiful and affordable little ukulele, well worth the extra money over other very low cost ukuleles. It did take a few weeks for it to stay permanently tuned, not a big deal just tuning it every day.Rosemary M.
“My daughter ordered this soprano as an upgrade. I wanted to spend more, but unfortunately couldn’t at the time. It didn’t matter this was worth more than it cost. She is happy and satisfied with her little Luna.”Miguel D.
Tenor Size Bundle
This Lohanu is one of the best tenor ukuleles under $100, and it comes with a whole lot of extras. It has the basic laminated mahogany/sapele sound board, two strap buttons, tuner, hanger, video lessons, picks, and just a variety of goodies. Finding a tenor under $100 is a not easy and usually when you do, they are nothing but a cheap uke! However in this case the simple Lohanu tenor actually makes for a good inexpensive ukulele. It’s not too fancy with no artwork or designs, but it gets the job done.
“I initially tried to buy two ukuleles that were awful. I even read not to be too cheap, but I spent around $40 each time. Now by doubling my budget I got this Lohanu tenor and wow what a difference. The strings are easier to play, and it just sounds so much better. I’ve learned my lesson.”Noe
“My son wanted to play guitar, but he still is not quite big enough. To make it up to him we decided to buy a nicer ukulele beginner model. After reading all the reviews I saw that folks loved this tenor, we ordered it, and now he loves it too!”Pearl W.
Ok, depending on which website you look at this ukulele can sometimes be a little over $100, but it’s still one of the best cheap baritone ukuleles to buy. Clearly a baritone at this price is not going to be perfect, but if that’s your budget than try it out. The design is definitely out of the ordinary as the sound holes are different and the color darker than usual. It has a unique build using all rosewood, and an LCD display for the electronics and tuner. As if this wasn’t enough it even comes with a gig bag. When it comes to finding the best uke under $100 you don’t usually see baritones, so it is quite amazing this also comes with all the extras! The biggest downside to such a low price baritone is you will likely encounter some flaws when you get it, just hope it isn’t anything to bad.
“What a budget friendly baritone! When I first brought this camping a few other uke payers were there, but I was the only one with a baritone and my uke got the most attention. I didn’t want to say how little it cost for my little Barry!”Jill
“I wasn’t expecting too much but not only does the baritone sound great, it also sounds good plugged in. If you crave an affordable baritone, try this Caramel as it is totally worth it.”Michel K.
