    Default Looking for European Uke Shops

    My wife and I are taking a trip next month and will be in Hamburg for several days and then taking a train to Amsterdam before flying back to the US. Does anyone know of any good shops near either of those cities that we should check out while we are there?

    Thomann are one of the largest Musical Instrument shops in the EU.

    Do have a look at their website and specifically for their shop

    Hans-Thomann-Straße 1
    96138 Burgebrach

    If you are going to London then it has to be Duke of Uke.

    Uke wish list, a Bass, make and model yet to be determined

    Along your itinerary, Uke Boutique in Amsterdam is probably your best bet. Neither Berlin nor Burgebrach are close to Hamburg, at least not in a European understanding. To be frank, most ukulele stores in Europe sell the same instruments as in the U.S., but at a higher price. If you'd want something genuinely European, you'd have to look at luthiers like Maurice Dupont in France, Pete Howlett in the U.K., or Tom Ziegenspeck in Germany. Or maybe a Brüko. Then there is APC in Portugal producing a large number of solid wood instruments, but of questionable quality. In the lower end sector, you have brands like Flight and Kokio which are administered from Europe, but made in China like Kala or Cordoba and others, most likely even at the same factories.
