    They do an amazing set up, definitely a great place to get a ukulele.

    I have had two great experiences with The Ukulele Site aka Hawaii Music Supply.

    I've bought several from them and have always had a good experience...They are great people to buy from and will stand behind every sale.

    I just bought a Pono from them 2 months ago and they did an excellent set up and customer service was excellent. I will definitely buy from them again.

    Andrew and crew at HMS (Ukulele Site) are second to none.... and I'm not just fluffing.
    Whether a high-end or low-end purchase, they will set the instrument up to play as well as it possibly can.

    I recently purchased a Kamaka baritone from HMS. My first baritone and I had loads of questions. They answered them all. Setup was fantastic. They strung it with Worths, as I requested but Joel included another set of strings with greater tension in the case since the Worths seemed a little floppy to him. Good group of folks. Don't think you can go wrong getting a uke from HMS.

    I purchased one uke from HMS / The Ukulele Site and would not hesitate to buy from them again!

    I have 3 'ukulele from The Ukulele Site. Each of them is a great instrument.The have been generous with time, information, and even indecision. If they have the instrument that you want there is no better place to buy an 'ukulele.
    Why me?
