    Cool UKE Republic

    I have to tell everyone that I just completed an excellent transaction with Mike at Uke Republic.

    I bought my grandaughter her first Uke, and had Mike ship it to Ventura, CA.

    USPS tried to throw a wrench in the works, but Mike wouldn't allow it.

    She has her Uke now, and all is well.

    Thanks Mike, all my business will be coming your way.

    happy to say I just bought a uke today from Mike. Wonderful to deal with and I look forward to more future transactions as well as my hopes of someday getting to visit his great shop! Keep up the great work Mike, can't wait to get my new Kala cedar/acacia from you!

    Another cheer for Mike! I’ve purchased a few ukes from Mike and they’ve all been stellar experiences.

    Looking forward to the next one...

    I ordered a uke from Mike, when it arrived at his shop he saw a tiny flaw . He gave me a choice of accepting a discount or a refund. Mike could have held up my money and gives me a store credit instead but he didn't. I received a full cash refund back on my PayPal account.

    I have been hoping and waiting for another opportunity to buy from Mike ever since.

    I appreciate the videos that he posts frequently on Facebook. You can tell that he loves his job. I split many of my purchases between Mike and Mim—The Ukulele Site doesn’t carry the Ohana models that I have been looking at, and both Mike and Mim get those models when they come out. Both dealers will also order entry level Kala and Ohana products on request—and both carry some of the same big brands (e.g. KoAloha). I’m looking forward to stopping in the store the next time that we visit family in Georgia.

    P.S. I do have to admit that I’m jealous that he’s wearing shorts in most of his recent videos...we’re stuck in winter here with shovelable snow AGAIN this weekend.

    Another metric to evaluate a business is how they handle returns. Well I have returned one uke to Mike - just because I didn't like it - and it was no trouble at all, no questions asked. Wouldn't hesitate to deal with him again. He's also the only domestic source for Living Waters strings that I know of.
