We are a small company specializing in tenor ukuleles for beginner to profesionnal players. We are located in Hawaii, on the island of Kauai, and manufacture our ukuleles in southeast Asia by a well known luthier in Vietnam to be able to sell a quality Instrument at a reasonable price. Please feel free to check out our luthier so you will know these are not production ukuleles. We only produce around six instruments each month to insure that quality is maintained to our standards at all times.
We have only one style: a deluxe model. All fingerboards are Ebony and come with a 16″ radius and bone nut and saddle, 14:1 geared tuners, abalone rosette, all wood bindings, no plastic. The radius on the fingerboard will make your playing easier as it shapes to the natural curve of your fingers when baring a cord. The two most important aspects of an instrument to a player is sound and playability or ease of playing. Each instrument is hand made by a small six-man staff to insure top quality to our standards at all times. Each instrument comes with a free padded travel bag to protect the instrument in shipping and to get the player started until they decide to purchase something different.
We can offer a wider neck for players who would like wider than our 38mm standard neck width. The widest we will make will be 40mm due to the string spacing becoming to wide. All instruments will come with D’Addario Pro Arte strings in low G for the best sound we can give our instruments and our customers. For the player that wants a High G you just need to change the 4th string to a higher tension G string.
