    choice!

    Questions: Can you do them in a larger scale (e.g. Concert) and do you have a sound sample? Cheers

    Yes we can do them in a larger scale - the ukulele can be tailor made to your measurements. I'm working on the sound sample. Will upload in a couple of days. Thanks for your interest mate!

    Multiply NZD250 by 0.74 (which is approximately the USD exchange rate at the moment) = USD185 (postage not included). Thanks for your interest!! )

    Go to Google, put 'NZD$250 = ?$USD' into Google and Google will tell you. Easy (btw, you can also do similar conversion questions with Google such as '5kg = ?lbs', hell you can even do maths e.g. '3*12=' etc)

    Or you could use one of the many online currency sites, or maybe your own bank has an online currency conversion tool. Here's the online currency site I use, simply because you can get permanent URL's out of it that are readable and shareable, unlike Google:

    For those who wish to hear what a Cook Islands ukulele sounds like, just click on the link below. The guy playing is my nephew, one of the top ukulele players in the Cook Islands running a casual ukulele lesson with some newbies.

    Hey Soxett

    I am thinking about your offer, it sounds really great.

    Could you tell me what the shipping cost would be to either New Zealand or the Netherlands.
    I'm gonna be in New Zealand for only 5 more weeks, within what time frame would you be able to send it?

    Thanks in advance.

    What kind of strings do you buy for it? Do you use all those wood varieties in one instrument, or are you supposed to choose a dominate wood? I have seen a few tahitian ukes in person, and they are heavier than a traditional uke. How much would shipping be to Los Angeles for a concert sized one? Do you offer cases or gig bags?
