What is the best Ukulele?

The answer to the question is highly subjective but in Hawaii the top makers, “The Three Ks”, are universally acknowledged as producing ukuleles of superb excellence: KamakaKoAloha and Kanilea. As the modern ukulele was born in Hawaii and that the Hawaiian Islands have more ukulele players per capita than anywhere else in the world, and that nearly all professional players in Hawaii choose one of the three “Ks”, a strong argument can be made that the Kamaka, the KoAloha and the Kanilea companies produce the consistently best and most admired ukuleles in the world. 

Here at UKES.COM on the island of Maui our KamakaKoAloha and Kanilea ukulele selection is extensive and these ukuleles are acquired by the top professional players of Hawaii and discriminating collectors from around the world. Most of them are constructed of beautifully figured Hawaiian Koa wood so the visual appearance as well as the tone is of striking quality.
