  • This place is such a gem

    They not only carry ukeleles, but they also make and carry high quality handpans. The handpans have a great tone compared to a different brand that I have played before and they resonate really well. This place has nice, friendly, and knowledgeable staff! I'm always happy to come back! 🙂

  • Absolutely love this store!

    I teach ukulele lessons and send all my students their way. They are so friendly and they take their time to help you find the right instrument for you. They have great accessories and they don't try to sell you things that you don't need!

  • This place is awesome!

    I did a lot of shopping around for quality instruments and information. This place went over and beyond to help me out. I wouldn't go anywhere else in the future. The selection and professionalism is unbelievable to its competitors. I will definitely be back!
