One Tuner to Rule Them All

Snark ST8-HZ

We only carry one tuner. It’s this one. You should have one of these in every instrument case you own. We’ve tried the others and the pain of living with them still scars our minds. (Admittedly, we weren’t using those minds for anything important, but still it hurts.) Buying a good tuner will change your musical life. Call to come try one out. More info HERE.

Cordoba Cadete

Meet André! Just in and pretty as a peach. This 3/4 size guitar sounds delicious. It’s small and high quality and I’ve set it up to play like butter … and you know butter is easy to play. You don’t need to be fighting a huge guitar to get great sound so come down and give this a twinkle.


Baritones, Tenors, Concerts, Sopranos!

Oh my! I’ve ended up with wall to wall ukuleles at World (Domination) Headquarters and will be crushed under with the next shipment from Ohana so call me up and get down here to save my life.

If I don’t have it, I can probably get it, and if I can’t get it, you’re probably needing to read less on the internet. I have almost all the good stuff.

The Tiple (“Tee Play”) is Here!

Ohana Tiple TK-35-10

Meet Theodore. He’s a ten string ukulele … yup, he’s weird, he’s brash, he’s loud. He’s got metal strings. He can be tuned to C-tuning like most American ukuleles or D-tuning to make him punch you in the face. He’s perfect for mandolin players, ukulele players, and anybody wanting to bring a new powerful and organ-like harmony to their music. In Columbia, they play these with eight strings, but back in the day Martin made a bunch of these with ten strings and then a few other companies joined in the fun. Ohana was pretty smart to offer new versions of these.The one we have in stock is in perfect shape and we’ve set it up to sound and play wonderfully. It’s heavy and ready for an adventurous player to change their musical landscape.

Mahalo Sunbursts

They finally did it. They stuffed all the coolness of concert and tenor ukuleles to the price range of Mahalo. These big guys are delightful for the person who wants a more robust sound in a larger instrument, sturdy construction, and a reasonable price. You gotta make sure you like playing ukulele before dumping a bunch of money into it, right?! Don’t be confused by Amazon, ours come with a full professional set-up along with a future string change. Come down and play this little rawk star.

Coco Parlor Guitar

Super fun and inspired by the movie. You need to have one of these.

From the manufacturer:

Embark on a musical adventure with the Coco Guitar, inspired by Coco, an all new film by Disney•Pixar. Built with a spruce top, mahogany back and sides and durable satin finish, the Coco Guitar sounds clear, warm and melodic, just like the guitars in the film. Its soft nylon strings are perfect for beginners and its smaller body (7/8 size) is comfortable to hold and play. The beautiful laser-etched design is inspired by the guitars and Mexican heritage featured throughout the film.

Here’s their product page:


Back in Business


Hold onto your fannies chickadees, the uploads are about to begin.

Here’s the truth … I’ve been so busy making music and dealing with life I haven’t paid enough attention to writing music, posting it, or even keeping the retail end of the operation up to snuff.

Cool news is I’ve almost gotten clear of some junk I’ve been dealing with as a condo association president and that’s coming together finally, so it’s time to focus on YOU and making sure you’re playing ukulele, playing guitar, playing kazoo, and making music with other people.

So in the spirit of the new year fast approaching, I’ll be giving everybody the “student discount” on everything for awhile so even if you’re just stumbling across this mess of a website, give me a call or drop me an email and I’ll hook you up.

We’re going to have an amazing 2019 and you should be a part of the fun. Come rawk with me.


All Smileys Back in Stock


They keep rushing off the shelves because they’re wonderful. We’ve got all the colors back in stock again. Come down and let’s rawk. In case you’re wondering, once we set these up and put some modern strings on them, they sound great. They’re perfect for kids, they make fun decorations, they’re excellent gifts, and heck yeah, they’re even a blast to play.


Consignments … Heck Yeah


I always have a few cool consignments you oughta come play. Give me a call to set up an appointment and we’ll rawk out first class.

This Martin is a modern and well cared for version inspired by the classic Martin sound. It’s got two cases and a bunch of accessories. It’s worth setting up an appointment to play. ($650-ish)

As always, call before you stop by to make sure we’re at World Headquarters and ready to open the secret vault.

Website prices aren’t always the best we can do, so come down and give us an idea what you think the ukulele is worth and we’ll contact the owner to see if they agree with you.


Schoenhut Piano Ready to Rawk



Looked pretty ratty to start off, but a good cleaning and a new face-plate and it’s ready for Chopin. This bad boy will be teamed up with another one just like it for a dueling pianos event coming soon to a concert stage near you.


Mahalo Smiley Faces Always Come First


Mahalo Smiley Faces

Here’s the first product I’m loading back onto the site after it crashed big time. Of course, we always start with Mahalo Smiley Face ukuleles in all 14 colors. I have most of the novelty Mahalos in the shop right now too. They make great gifts and I’ve used a cheap Mahalo for years and years. My prices beat Amazon AND I will set them up properly before you pick them up. When you order these on line, they come to you all screwed up … I know, because that’s how I get them too … and it takes a quite a bit of work to get them going.

Well, the Site Crashed

Boo! The WooCommerce plugin took my whole site down with its latest update. It was bad! So I’m re-doing everything and saying goodbye to the Woo. Be patient as I re-design and re-upload a gajillion things. I guess it was time to clean house anyway.


Adding a K&K Pickup

Added a K&K Pickup to this sweet Ohana tenor and wow did it ever pop. Nice and bright and loud.  Consider adding one into your ukulele. Bring it by and I’ll help you with making it happen.


Martin Series 2 in the Shop Today



This little guy showed up in the repair shop today. He’s a little rough around the edges, and his tuners needed some lovin’ from an unrelenting screwdriver, but he’s back in the game. It’s a Martin Style 2 produced sometime between 1935 and 1960. I’m leaning toward an earlier date based on overall condition. Has a nice sweet old-school ukulele sound and it’ll be headed back to the owner tonight.


Guitar Theory



Well, we either had fun and learned a lot in my guitar class tonight, or we had a nightmare and fell into despair. Either way, they’re gonna need to get me more dry erase markers.


Get a Button

Let’s add a strap to your ukulele.

I’ll add a strap button to your uke to make your life easier and get you ready to play Red Rocks.
