The smaller soprano size ukulele has the traditional warm and open sound that many players desire. The soprano ukulele is a versatile instrument, both in sound and playability.



Tenor is the larger of the ukulele sizes I build. The longer scale and larger body provides the Tenor size instruments with well balanced and focused sound. The bigger size and longer scale also means significantly more space for the players with bigger hands.




The Artisan category ukuleles are built with traditional and top quality woods. They are the embodiment of a good intsruments with limited customization options. If you are simply looking for a well playing instrument without anything extra, then this is the way to go.


The Pro category provides instruments build with the same top quality woods and craftmanship as the Artisan model, but with plenty of customization options. These options include wood bindings & purflings, mother of pearl fretboard markers, custom inlays and a high gloss finish. If you are looking for a truly unique instrument with a superb sound and performance, then Pro is for you.
