Hey, fellow uke player! Did you know 99.9% of visitors to this site will scroll past this message without making a contribution? Many plan to pledge later, but then forget. So we're asking you to give just $2 (or whatever you can afford) right now.

Using “12th Street Rag,” a popular early ukulele showpiece, as a demo piece, Rachel Manke introduced the new vintage-style Ohana SK-39 at our booth at the 2017 NAMM show.

Taking its design cues from the desirable Martin Style 3 ukuleles from days of yore, the Ohana SK-39 features a solid mahogany body, the distinctive “shield” inlay on the body, and extensive maple binding. Ohana’s Louis Wu says that the SK-39 will list for $429.


This ukulele is also available in a concert size, as the Ohana CK-39. Look for these to hit stores around April.
