Hawaiian koa wood’s captivating beauty is matched by a tone that blossoms over time, especially in the midrange. Its voice is bright and focused, with warm overtones that slowly emerge, adding sweetness and depth. Premium all-wood appointments, led by the Tropical Vine fretboard inlay, celebrate the wood’s natural appeal.

Ukuleles in Hilo, Hawaii

We have Hawaiian crafted ukuleles from Kanilea, Kamaka, and Po Mahina. We also have a large number of high quality ukuleles imported from overseas, including Kala, Oscar Schmidt, Makala, Islander and Nalu (etc).

We offer both guitar and ukulele repair by our own Luthier Dennis Lake (maker of Po Mahina Ukuleles).

Guitar and ukulele lessons are available in the store.
We have staged workshops by Slack key Legend Ozzie Kotani and ukulele virtuoso James Hill, and will continue to do so when the opportunity arises.

Whether you are looking for that special guitar or that beautiful Hawaiian Koa ukulele, or just want to come in and talk story, we look forward to seeing you and helping you in any way we can.
