The ukulele just might be the easiest path into the world of making music
Aside from being beautiful instruments made from gorgeous woods normally associated with fine furniture, they are relatively inexpensive and easy to learn.
We offer Ohana, Amahi, Islander, Koaloha, Duke, Shima, Kala and Kanilea Ukuleles with prices starting at 40 dollars. You might be wondering what your options are as far as ukulele size and types of wood, because they do come in soprano, concert, tenor and baritone. The wood options are many including koa, mahogany, spruce, acacia, willow, cedar, mango, bocote, ebony, white ebony, african burl... wow, that's a lot. There are also solid vs, laminate options and you can visit our frequently asked questions page to learn more.
I received my Ohana pineapple uke. I cannot believe how nice it is. It really compares to way more expensive uke. Regards

My son, Huero the birthday boy, really loved your personality. He said that he could tell that you teach and he hopes to inspire kids the way you inspired him. Thanks again!

Sizes of ukuleles
There are four main sizes of ukulele: soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone. Each has its own sound and uses.
- Soprano: Aproximately 21 inches from end to end, the soprano is the smallest ukulele, almost. There is actually a sopranino. This is the traditional size for this instrument. It gives you that classic, bright sound you expect from a uke. Because of its small size, it isn't extremely loud, and it can be tricky to play if you have large hands. Soprano ukes are usually tuned to G-C-E-A.
- Concert: Measuring around 24 inches long, these are the next size up. This marginally larger size makes them louder and easier to play while still retaining the traditional ukulele sound. These ukes are usually tuned like soprano's.
- Tenor: At approximately 27 inches long, tenor ukes are the second largest variety and are usually tuned like soprano and concert ukes. The Tenor has a slightly deeper, fuller tone.
- Baritone: Baritone ukuleles are the largest of the uke family, at around 30 inches long, and have the deepest tone, more akin to a classical guitar. These are generally tuned to the same notes as the top four strings on a standard guitar (D-G-B-E).
