  • Favilla Vintage Model U-2 Solid Mahogany Soprano Ukulele ca. 1930s

    The Favilla brothers, John (Giovanni) and Joseph, originally from Italy, set up their stringed instrument building business, in 1894, in mainland America, after originally learning from their father, Francesco, in Italy. Although originally a guitar company, by the early 1920’s, the Favilla brothers were based in New York and were building thousands of stringed instruments, including ukuleles, violins, banjos and mandolins, with the help of their 55 employees.

  • Gretsch Solid Mahogany Soprano Ukulele ca. 1950s

    Gretsch ukes are often wrongly ignored by those uke-lovers who remain fiercely loyal to their particular brand of choice, however Gretsch ukuleles certainly deserve your respect and attention. Gretsch may be better known for their guitars, but their ukuleles have aged well and vintage Gretschs, such as this one, have a very good reputation and clearly rival the likes of the well-known Martin and Gibson brands.

  • Kamaka HF-2 Solid Koa Concert Ukulele 2003

    The Kamaka HF-2 ukulele is Concert size, which is an intermediate size between a Standard (Soprano) and a Tenor. The Concert size (also known as Alto) is the perfect balance between the two more common sizes as it has a fuller, richer tone like the Tenor, while remaining easy to play like the Standard (Soprano) size. The Kamaka Concert ukulele has a much more punchy sound than the Soprano and the longer string length is much more forgiving and ensures there is more room for fingering than on the smaller sized Soprano ukuleles – which is especially helpful if you have larger fingers!

The Kamaka Concert has 12 frets to the body and 16 frets overall and is a top quality instrument with a great full sound.

  • Maccaferri Islander Ukette ca. 1950s

    The Islander Ukette was a later introduction to the Maccaferri line of plastic instruments and neatly complements the Islander ukulele it was modelled after. At such a small size, the Ukette was intended really as an instrument for children, although it now attracts admirers of all ages and is truly a vintage collectible in its own right.
