Could someone please tell me what brand of uku Tsuji Ayano uses? I know that the logo of the brand has kind of a shield shape. It's the one she's using in the song "The Return of the Cat". I just really like that sound.

Can you post a link to a photo or a video of Tsuji Ayano with the ukulele? That might help.

I remember reading that it was a custom but can't remember who made it for her originally... I'm pretty sure the thing I read about the evolution of her custom uke was on one of these sites, but I'm at work at the moment and can't take the time to translate... Maybe tonight I'll have time to poke around a bit more.

Ayano Ukulele website (http://tsujiayano.com/ukulele/index.html)
Tsuji Ayano official site (http://www.tsujiayano.com/)

Most clips and photos I've seen of her are playing a uke that looks like the one for sale at the first link, with that "clover" design on the headstock - I'm not sure I've ever seen that "shield" design before.
