Aloha! and welcome to our website.

About the Ukulele

The ukulele originated in the 19th century as a Hawaiian adaptation of the Portuguese machete, a small guitar-like instrument, which was introduced to Hawaii by Portuguese immigrants, many from Madeira and the Azores. It gained great popularity elsewhere in the United States during the early 20th century, and from there spread internationally. The tone and volume of the instrument vary with size and construction. Ukuleles commonly come in four sizes: soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone.

About our company

Aloha Ukuleles bridge the gap between Hawaiian ukulele tradition and the needs of the discerning modern player.  We promote the joy of making music with innovative design and detailed craftsmanship created from a confluence of culture, time, and place. We are dedicated to the serious hobbyist, professional performer, and ukulele player that demands more from their instrument.  We’ve challenged ourselves to craft ukuleles that play, perform, and sound like no other – allowing players to uniquely express themselves through our instruments and find their own sound.
