    Default Brothers Ukes, Southern California

    I can't find much info on these guys on this forum.
    At least one is a member here, which is how I found them.
    So lets start a thread!

    These fellows are in Lawndale and teach/help folks build there own ukuleles.
    The web site photos look amazing.
    The instrument played by their patrons sound great too.

    Welcome to the Underground, welcome to the Lounge.
    Dennis has been around a while, so not sure where this thread is headed.
    You're more than welcome to share your builds, questions, etc.
    Know that a LOT of what is being asked, statistically has been covered - Search is your friend. finkdaddy is on a mission in that realm since his return. . .

    I'm sure if Dennis wanted to engage here, he would. Most of his updates are on Facebook, naturally.

    I was hoping some of his students would share their experiences and thoughts on building their own ukuleles.

    Hi Enoch! It was nice meeting you over the weekend!

    I dont get to UU very often. Facebook really has been where I do most of my posting.
    There are a couple of UU members that have built in my shop and Ill try to get them to share something.
    I have never really tried much to promote what We do as word of mouth and repeat builders have kept us fairly busy for retired guys.

    Brothers Ukes is me and my Brother in Law, Ed Heredia.

    Since the Los Angeles International Ukulele festival is a few miles from home we decided to have a booth this year. The Uke festival is really worth going to!
    Come on down and we can spend more time. ....

    P.S. LOL sorry about the sideways pic. It is so much easier on facebook to get it right!

    Thanks Kekani for pointing to my hangout! I must say I have spent a lot of time scouring UU for knowledge and have been thankful for all I have learned by being around. I just haven't done much posting but really love this place.
