Think Ukuleles are only appropriate for luaus? Think again. This compact stringed instrument is part of the guitar family and is undergoing a serious revival since the 1990s among all kinds of musicians. Ukuleles are also an unbelievable bargain for a serious musical instrument.
The magic of the ukulele is that it is both a perfect instrument for someone who has never played anything before as well as the experienced musician wanting to expand their instrument world. Plus it is super compact, and you can get a great quality uke for less than $200.
We have the largest Ukulele selection in the East Bay (or maybe the entire Bay Area!) We sell hundreds of ukuleles every year, but we know each one is special and we take the time to make sure you have the instrument that is right for you in a fun, no-pressure environment.
We carry some of the leading brands of ukuleles made today, including:
Martin - One of the leading instrument brands in the world, their ukuleles are legendary and deserve their wonderful reputation.
Kala - headquartered close by us in Petaluma! In addition to great mid-priced ukuleles, they also offer the budget Makala line, the innovative U-Bass, and the hand-built Elite line.
Kanile'a - based out of Hawaii, Kanile'a ukes are hand-crafted masterpieces. They also have a more budget-friendly Islander line that we like very much.
Ohana - this is a very innovative ukulele company that uses very interesting woods (like black & white striped ebony) and has a sweet vintage line as well.
Outdoor Ukulele - This totally cool company of out Bend, Oregon makes ukes that are designed for hiking, kayaking, or any other outdoor activity. The ukes are super tough and can withstand extreme temperatures!
Flight Ukulele - One of the hottest uke companies out there - their ukes are well made, exceptionally priced, and come with a gig bag.
We have a wide selection of everything a uke player could need, like cases, tuners, stands, and straps. We also carry a great selection of ukulele sheet music and instruction books designed for the beginning and experienced ukulele performers.
