  • Sam Chang Style 3 Solid Koa Soprano Ukulele ca. 1940s

    Sam Chang was a Hawaiian ukulele maker who first advertised in 1926, but unlike many ukulele companies from the 1920s, he was still in business in the 1950s. Sam Chang was a contemporary of Sam Kamaka Sr. back in the days when there was a real camaraderie between uke makers in Hawaii and in the spirit of aloha they would frequently help each other out and learn from each other. This is a highly sought after and extremely collectible vintage instrument, with a sound similar to that you would expect from a fine Kamaka. Sam Chang ukuleles rarely surface and are very hard to come by and this truly exceptional solid Hawaiian Koa Style 3 Soprano ca. 1940s will not disappoint.
