******************************


I have been interested in Ukuleles and Banjo Ukes for more years than I care to remember. For many years it was always very difficult to find good quality instruments, so when I started my website in early January 2001 my aim was to try to provide excellent quality instruments of all ages and across all price ranges, which is something that I continue to try very hard to do.
