I have been interested in Ukuleles and Banjo Ukes for over 45 years, and for a long time it has always been very difficult to find good quality instruments. So, when I started my website early in 2001 my aim was to try and provide a range of excellent quality instruments of all ages and across all price ranges, something that I continue to try very hard to do.
