Kamaka Ukulele
This family-run luthier shop has been handcrafting world-renowned instruments since 1916. They often deploy koa, a native wood prized for its luminous, almost psychedelic wood grain patterns. The company's rich-toned ukes inspire beginners and maestros alike. The Ukulele Hall of Fame has already honored its first two generations... and two more are helping to keep the craft alive at the Kamaka store and factory in Honolulu's up-and-coming Kakaako neighborhood. They offer free guided tours, Tuesdays through Fridays at 10:30 a.m. The aloha spirit extends to child musicians, who receive activity books. But leave any strollers or bulky backpacks behind, as the hour-long walk-and-talk involves stairs and tight quarters.

Kamaka Ukulele

Kamaka has been making top-end ukuleles since its first one-man shop opened in 1916. Now these third-generation Hawaiian luthiers hone and hand-build instruments sold throughout the archipelago. They often deploy koa, a wood famous for its luminous, almost psychedelic wood grain patterns. These rich-toned ukes inspire beginners and maestros alike.
