View Full Version : What are the best uke stores in Honolulu?

02-06-2011, 11:50 AM
Well, the title pretty much sums it up, but what are the best places to go to in Honolulu for finding the best selection of high end ukes(KoAloha, Kamaka, local luthiers etc.)? I won't have a whole lot of time so I want to get the most out of the visit. I am hoping to find a great koa soprano for a good price. Any suggestions?

Check the Ukulele Stores (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?16519-Ukulele-Stores-USA) listing. Musicguymic on the windward side of the island, Hawai’i Music Supply in Wahiawa (north of Honolulu) as well as a number of builders (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?16211-808-Builders) on Oahu.
