"Great store. It's a history lesson walking through. Richard was great!
Helped us buy a beginners uke, took his time and made us feel like regulars!

"Wonderful selection of beautiful ukuleles. Large assortment of ukulele CD's.
Richard is the man to see on the Big Island."
Chris C. • Decatur, IL • Yelp

"Wandered into this little shop and was amazed by the selection of vintage ukuleles. It may be small on the outside, but inside there were three rooms full of ukes going back to the twenties. There were Martins, and banjo ukes, and many other really excellent ukes from different eras and makers. I bought a 70's era Kamaka Pineapple uke that just sounds beautiful. I also picked up a case for it that was really great and many people stopped me during my travels to ask me where I had gotten it. He also had a nice selection of CDs of vintage ukulele music and performers. There weren't that many music books, but the ones there were well chosen. There was also a nice selection of vintage Hawaiian shirts for sale. It's not the kind of store you go to searching for a bargain, but if you are looking for a quality vintage ukulele from a very knowledgeable and helpful shop than this place is definitely worth a visit."

"Fun"
Anonymous Square Receipt Feedback, 2015

"This business is great. They have an amazing & extensive collection of ukuleles for sale that is quite impressive, as well as other unique island stuff. The owner rocks! He gave us a 5-minute "Ukulele 101" class. My husband and I learned how play a few notes, the proper way to strum, and that it's important to swing our hips. We bought a little 'pineapple' ukulele, which has a deeper tone and that cool shape, plus some Hawaiian CDs. He kindly threw in a couple of neat stickers to our bag. What a fun shopping experience. I promised the owner I'd give him a heads-up when I've progressed in my ukulele playing to the extent that I'll be posting YouTube videos. Get yourself in there and buy a ukulele for yourself AND a friend!"

"Great place to buy a pro ukulele. Good selection in a wide range of prices.
Richard, the owner, knows his shit. Cool collection of vintage instruments, too. Charming place."
Paul G. • December 24, 2012 • Foursquare

"We happened in this shop while in Hawi. We met Dennis McKenna. He was offering free five minute ukulele lessons. I'd actually played a little soprano ukulele in college. it was so much fun getting a refresher course with Dennis that I bought a tenor ukulele from Richard. This is a wonderful shop with a great selection of instruments. I look forward to visiting it again."
