    Lightbulb Insight into Brüko

    Have you ever been curious who the people behind BRUEKO are? With this video you get an impression of how that small German family business produces their high quality solid wood ukuleles for decades now. Enjoy!

    I have been there to see where my solid Mahagoni Soprano came from. Nice video!

    Cool video.. Do they still stamp "W Germany" on their ukes? I thought manufactures over there stopped using the "W" since the wall came down..

    I asked Mr. Pfeiffer the same. He told me, it´s just the way he always did it und a new heated stamp would be quite expensive.
    My suggestion was to grind out the W and leave the space, but he was not convinced...

    Well, I think it's cool tho. I just hadn't seen it used since the Regan era. I don't see why not tho, it's still western Germany, lol.. I have allot of 'W. Germany" stuff around the house reminding me of the cold war, becasue I served in NATO over there during that era, so to me it's just cool to see it still being used.
