204 Ukulele Builders & Luthiers Around the World!
Periodically I'll feature a ukulele builder or manufacture that just goes above and beyond on the quality and customer care with their instruments. Mya-Moe is one of those builders that sprung on the scene a few years ago and has just shined. One of their ukuleles is on my list this year to finally have them build. I've been putting it off for far too long.
A lifelong player and woodworker, Dave Means started building stringed instruments as an avocation in 1995. He has been doing set-up and repairs for over 30 years! Since retirement from his "day job" in February, lutherie is now his full-time retirement vocation. Being a research engineer by formal training and well-grounded in acoustical theory and practice gives Dave the know-how to make your ukulele sound right.
Hula Monkey Ukuleles are handmade in Arnold, Maryland by luthier Glenn Bosshard. Each Hula Monkey ukulele is made one at a time and takes several weeks to complete. A variety of materials are used to construct a Hula Monkey uke mainly focusing on continental USA hardwoods but other exotic species are also used. Each piece of wood that goes into our ukes is hand selected for the best tonal qualities and most pleasing aesthetic.
