    TUS/HMS Communication Issue Resolved by Andrew

    I don’t think so. Aaron’s been a good customer and is open to being one again. That’s the people that keep us alive as a business. And we are here for him with any issues along the way and hope to help again and give him positive experiences. Enough people have experienced our support to keep us...

    TUS/HMS Communication Issue Resolved by Andrew

    I apologize Aaron. I try my best to run a business that is responsive and I apologize for falling short there. Joel is more than full time nothing but answering emails and calls and it’s half the time from Veronica and Corey. Tobias gets paid to run our Instagram and it is remote but it’s quite...

    Adjustable action

    I give Luis the freedom to do whatever he wants on custom for us and this is one on the way, thought it was kind of interesting. We used to carry Babicz guitars that had a similar system but this is the first I've seen on uke.

    Uke on a cruise ship

    Well I think it's a dumb rule. There's noise everywhere. They have house music blasting on huge speakers all over the place. In your room you can crank the television and my son walks around with his iPad turned up wherever we let him. This isn't a relaxing seniors cruise. Children are running...

    Uke on a cruise ship

    Me and my wife are gong on a disney cruise with the kiddies and I just found out last minute that they don’t allow musical instruments. Honestly I would not have agreed to do this if I knew. Vacation and playing uke have always been synonymous for me. When I am home, work and family consume my...

    Pono Pro Classic Price Adjustment Issue

    I am writing this here and will send emails as well within a few days, but I wanted to preemptively address this issue. My dad runs Ko'olua and Pono Ukulele. I do not. I run a music store that buys Pono, just like any other music store (dealer). Until recently, the Pro Classic line was...
