    I'm just guessing, but having a competent luthier/craftsman fix those cracks would probably run you a couple of hundred dollars. It's not a repair job for an inexperienced amateur. That brings your...

    Pete Howlett has not retired from ukulele building but he's no longer building custom instruments. His health has slowed him down, but he's currently focused on his semi-production "Revelator" model,...

    I will never conduct an online transaction payment as a "gift." There is absolutely zero protection for both the buyer and the seller. There's no recourse if you send the money and receive a broken...

    I currently have them on two ukuleles, a Cocobolo Concert and a Jupiter Tenor. I like them a lot. Good sound, good tension, good overall!

    99% of the time you will not sell a ukulele for the price you purchased. It's like an automobile...you drive it away from the dealership and you've lost 10% or 15% of what you paid.

    No, thank you. Some mango can be pretty ugly in its natural state. That treatment makes it even worse. :(

    Several years ago, Cocobolo Ukulele made a few ukuleles with Cocobolo back and sides and a Cedar top. I was fortunate to obtain a concert and it's a sonic gem. My only complaint about it is the very...

    You've already mentioned one of my favorites, the Spruce-Rosewood aNueNue Moon Bird tenor. Another that I really like is my custom Jupiter tenor with Pennsylvania Sycamore back and sides (a hardwood)...

    Installing strap buttons does not break the ukulele or ruin the sound. Just about every steel-string acoustic guitar has strap buttons installed at the factory and no one complains about them.

    Avoid the Moleskine journals. The paper is not fountain-pen-friendly (feathering, bleed-through, etc.). Rhodia, Clairfontaine, Black-and-Red are all good paper choices.

    I had a Misi pickup installed when my Jupiter Tenor was built and I just had a Misi installed in my aNueNue Moon Bird Tenor. They sound great and the one-minute-charge time is fantastic.
