    Post Custom Builders

    I've compiled a partial list of builders (in no particular order) for those interested in a high end or custom instrument. If you're looking for a Hawaiian built instrument, I haven't included a number of the builders in the 808 which will probably be another list.

    Nana ka maka; ho`olohe ka pepeiao;
    pa`a ka waha.

    Observe with the eyes; listen with the ears; shut the mouth.
    Thus one learns.
