Check our new island ukes. I believe, we have reinvented uke making by simplifying the process without comprising quality in the finish and sound as well. enjoy the brochure.

I got a price quote from the seller Ritchie Wagas of Wagas Craft's:

Introductory Retail price of our ukes in the Philippines are as follows :

1. Large Uke 3"x8"x24" ( Concert Size ) @ 53.33 per piece ;
2. Medium Uke 3"x7"x20" ( Soprano-Standard) @ $ 44.44 per piece;
3. Small Uke 3"x6"x16" (Soprano-Junior) @ 35.55 per piece;
4. Miniature Uke 3"x5"x12" (Soprano-Mini) @ 26.66 per piece;

Take notice that we have uniform price for each size. It means
that regardless of the design - " same size, same price ".

The export volume price is about 50% lower than our retail prices.



Still working on shipping depending on model, and amounts.

And a Soprano mini would be a...? Sopraninino!??!

Hi guys,

We have not yet updated our website -www.wagascrafts.com. You can send email to admin@wagascrafts.com. Let me emphasize that the sides of our uke are solid wherein the bottom-side and neck-side is one inch thick, and the other sides is 1/2 inch thick. Inside the sound board is clean without braces at all. Hope you will like it.

Hi Wagas. You have these in the Manila malls? Your poster highlighting these as gift/decor/souvenir, does this mean this isn't the sort to actually play?

You can actually play them. That is why we emphasized the word UKE with big letters. The quality of the sound is good because the sides is from one whole piece solid gmelina wood. OK

Thanks for the suggestion. We made these ukes because we love to play them also. Because our designs are not traditional ones, then we need your feedback if these developments are acceptable by the uke lovers around the world. May these ukes be an instrument for world peace!

1 inch and 1/2 inch thicknesses? How much do they weigh? 5 kilograms? I'm not quite getting the picture. Do you ship to the United States? I own a hoe in Antipolo City, but live in California in the United States. Ric

Kumusta Ric ! The thickness of the body is 2 1/4 ". I will be shipping iva DHL a sample of the uke to my brother in Balersfield, CA tomorrow. I can give you an estimate of the shipping cost by then. The weight of the consert size uke is about 1/2 kilo, more or less. Check also our collapsible wooden stand in our facebook account at wagas crafts. Okey

They look cool though!

English is not our dialect here. Am trying to understand what you mean by "hinky".
Wala ko kasabaot sa maong pulong. But anyways, I have emphasized since then that I
have a woodcraft company and recently included the island ukes in our product lines
for the love of music. The website will be updated soon to include the island ukes.
Also, there a lot of uke builders in our island. Most of there ukes are being exported to
Hawaii, California and the rest of the world. Ours will be available soon in Hawaii and in the
mainland. The basic improvement of our island ukes aside from the shape are the solid sides
and assembled without the braces inside. Love to hear more thoughts...for the rebirth of the uke!

Let me know who the Hawai'i distributor is so I can check out your product first hand. Would prefer to try it before paying for one. Hopefully they'll stock plenty green honu models.

Thanks for the guidance. Why do you say that our website is a bit hinky? Do you mean that the website is suspicious or you mean that there is something wrong with us? Please let us know.

Any updates? Are these ukes available at the Mall of Asia? I'll be in the PI fro12/12 to next year. I would love to pick up a couple of the "soprano miniature" ukes in green.
