    Congratulations to Mana Maoli!

    Mana Maoli comes to our school, and many of our students are in their videos. They're even better than what was written about them on so many levels. To me, their biggest strength is how all of their kumu tie everything in to Hawaiian culture. Ho'omaikai ia oukou e Mana Maoli!!!!!

    Ukuleles that one must sample and why

    Being born and raised in Hawaii, I've owned and played all the K brands, but haven't even seen any of the custom builds listed. (I do know that Ukulele Friend in Kaimuki has some of them). That being said, one ukulele that kinda blew me away was the Rebel double cream mango tenor, so much so...

    Your favorite Low G string set? (Replacement for Southcoast LML-RW)

    D'addario fluoro, with a fluoro low G on my Kala tenor. The strings feel soft, and the response feels a little delayed, but they really project well IMO. I like em

    Songs you don't want to admit that you like.

    "Don't Know Why" by Nora Jones, LOL. I'm a dude so I feel weird singing "My heart is drenched in wine."

    "Best Ukulele" in the Ohana Marketplace on Ward Ave. is another smaller store. They're also at the Aloha Stadium swap meet on the weekends. They carry the Big 3 K brands, Rebel, Kala, Ohana and a few more.

    How many main/number 1 ukuleles do you have?

    All of my ukes are #1 because of how they're used. My Kanilea and Rebel are only played indoors, my Kumu is for when I take a walk around the neighborhood, my Kala is for outdoor jamming, and my Ohana sits in my kitchen played while I cook. Oh, and my Koa Kalane is for when I go beach or fishing.
