Hello, I am Peter Lieberman-maker of Maui Music Ukuleles.
13 years ago today was the great fire.
I thank you all for sticking by me thru thick and thin.
It is with great gusto and verve that I continue today making the best products in my evolutionary career.
Every night when I rest my head on my pillow I cannot wait to get up in the morning and get to my shop.
It is my life, my passion, my art and my craft.
Long ago when there was only one "K" brand I was there in the marketplace with Sam and Chris Kamaka.
I have been truly heaven blessed and I just wanted to shout it to the world!
Ukers and good people of the world, I love my life!
I rejoice this Christmas and New Year.
I wish you all joy and happiness.

I own a pre-fire 6 string, somewhat battered by it's journey since it was made but still making lovely music! Thank you so much for making these very fine instruments, and I wish you all the best in the new year!

As the proud owner of one of your recent works, I am truly glad that you stuck with it. I can only imagine the depths you had to dig yourself out of after the fire. Keep on keepin' on! Thanks Peter

Hey Peter, Happy New Year and God Bless. I imagine you are lounging on the beach in Hawaii while I am freezing my ass off in New Jersey .. However, as the proud owner of both pre and post fire Maui Music ukes
I want you to know that I treasure them both and play them regularly. Maybe next year if you get back to the Garden State, we can enjoy a libation at the Windlass. All the best to you and yours.

Wishing you many more good years.

Aloha Peter,
I have a Soprano, Concert, and Tenor MMs, all pre-fire and love them. I normally live in NorCal but have been spending a lot of time on Maui, Iao Valley now.....

Reviving an older post - but just had to say that I hope Peter L is still doing well and making great ukes. The video of him on his website is really fun. I LOVE my Maui Music Deluxe Tenor that I was fortunate enough to obtain used from the marketplace here. It's just great in every way.

I'm glad that you are around and I'm sure you have evolved like every other luthier through out the years!! I can't believe people when they say the pre-fire Ukes are better than what you make now. Keep up the good work!!
