It can be hard being the guy that brings a ukulele to a jam session. Though true lovers of the jumping flea know what joy the instrument can bring, they also know the pain of the groans and guffaws it can elicit from fellow musicians. With its handcrafted instruments, LuLu Ukuleles aims to turn that situation around with a line of ukes that are as wonderful to behold as they are to hear in action.
