    F/S Calton ukulele case $650

    I just recently received three new Caltons (two for guitars and one for an ukulele), so I am selling my old Calton ukulele case. It was made for a custom Moore Bettah ukulele, but also fits my KoAloha tenor as well. It is black, with silver padding, and comes with backpack straps. While it is...

    FS: Moore Bettah ukulele with Calton case

    NOW SOLD It is with a great deal of debate that I have come to the decision to sell one of my Moore Bettah ukuleles. I wrote a book about Moore Bettah, and I consider them the finest instruments in the ukulele world. I also greatly value Chuck Moore, the man behind them, and consider them an...

    Slimline tenor case recommendation

    It can be tough to find the perfect case for a slimline tenor ukulele, since they have such a narrow height. For my KoAloha slimline though, I found one that works wonderfully. I got a good deal on it on Amazon (YMC Tenor Ukulele Case Hardshell Case with Plush Interior and Storage - Black), but...

    FS: RISA Les Paul ukulele in black

    I bought this ukulele from Mim's Ukes a few months ago, after having a problem with a prior RISA. This one plays great, and was set up by Mim. It has low action and has only been played a couple of times. I'm selling it because it is a luxury - I play mainly my MB ukes and occasionally my...

    NUD: Risa Les Paul solid body electric ukulele

    I am a frustrated rock goddess, so I made a splurge purchase yesterday to indulge the wannabe in me. I saw a Risa Les Paul solid body ukulele in black and couldn't resist it. My spouse, who usually discourages my uke purchases was even enamored enough to mutter, "You are going to have to teach...

    KoAloha's new factory

    KoAloha is slowly but surely moving into their new factory space. It is going to be right between Ala Moana mall and Ward Center and actually the closest uke factory to Waikiki, which is great for tourists - and Moms Okami too as she loves the mall! :) I spoke with Pops and Paul this week and...

    City of Stars from La La Land

    I saw "La La Land" this week (loved it!) and can't get the song "City of Stars" out of my head. I was hoping to find someone had uploaded a ukulele tablature of it on the Internet (preferably low g) but no luck, just chords. By the way, side note, but I absolutely HATE it when people call...

    Free KoAloha tenor ukulele

    KoAloha have been so generous with me. I owed them for the ukulele they recently built for me, and when I tried to pay, they told me the cost was the book I wrote for them. I am so incredibly blessed to have received not one, but two, gifts of incredible ukulele. So here is the thing, I can...

    NUD: KoAloha curly koa slimline tenor

    Just opened up a delivery from the UPS man today and I am quite happy with the newest member of the ukulele family. I ordered a curly koa slimline tenor from KoAloha. I am surprised at how comfortable the slimline is to play. I didn't think it would make much difference, but it is really...

    Moore Bettah book now available to buy online

    Since we sold out of our initial printing of the book I wrote about Moore Bettah ukuleles, it is now available for purchase online. Because it is not a bulk print rate, it is $6 more now - but their shipping is cheaper so it ends up about the same. I am sorry it costs so much but it does cost...

    KoAloha factory and Krew in video

    This is a new music video featuring the Krew at KoAloha at their factory. I thought the song and singer were fun, but it really is worth watching just to see Pops play air broom. :) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_bIqzN31vgg

    Honolulu airport prohibits playing musical instruments

    Wow, Led Kaapana was stopped from playing his guitar in the Honolulu airport. Apparently there is a state law prohibiting playing musical instruments at the airport. One I guess I have violated far too many times. Admittedly, I don't play loud enough for anyone else to hear, but Led Kaapana...

    KoAloha and feeling like ohana

    Have you ever had someone do the nicest thing anyone has ever done for you, and you feel undeserving of it? As many people know, I sold my beloved KoAloha, Kanilea and Kamaka ukuleles to pay for my Moore Bettah ukulele. A couple of weeks ago, I was at the KoAloha factory interviewing Pops for...
