The sure way to be really good at something is to continue doing it, day after day, after day. Whether it’s business, or health, or learning ukulele…., to be good at it, you just gotta keep doin’ it. We are constantly working at being the best ukulele shop you can find. A big part of that is bringing in the most outstanding models from the best makers out there and showing you the most remarkable ukuleles being made. For those of you in search of the best ukulele money can buy, or simply intrigued by the ultimate uke, this post is for you! These three instruments have recently come through The Ukulele Site. Any one of these instruments could be, “The Most Extremely Awesome Uke” depending on your taste. In any case, these tenors are undeniably incredible. Check them out -
This is a Ko’olau that was recently available on our website (for only about 10 minutes before selling!) It has a curly redwood top and Macassar ebony sides and back. This redwood has amazing tonal character and luckily Noa still has a few more sets of this wood!
The craftsmanship on a Ko’olau is as flawless as you will find!
This next ukulele we showed in our last series of blogs on NAMM. It is the most epic Kamaka you could dream of. We took it off our website after it sold but it deserves to be documented! Here it is, the Casey Kamaka custom tenor we brought back from NAMM 2012-
The last ukulele we will document has also disappeared from the website, but I consider it to be one of the best to roll through in the past few months. Sound was very deep and warm in spite of it’s slim profile. This is a custom built tenor from Aaron Oya. Aaron is the real deal. One of the best custom uke makers from Hawaii. Hopefully next time we will have one long enough to do a sound sample.
More to come from Aaron for sure, as well as Kamaka, Koolau, Kanilea, KoAloha, and all the other fantastic ukulele makers that bless us with their talent and hard work. Perhaps this will motivate you to earn a little extra money and get a musical masterpiece from the islands. Aloha from Hawaii. Come see us on the North Shore!!~
