No, I'm not into the real estate business. I'm talking about where my ukes are built. Just for fun, I thought perhaps I'd track where all of my current ukes are made.
-Hawaii (6): Kamaka tenor HF-3, Koa Works tenor KW-4, Kanile'a super-soprano, Ko'olau CE-1, KoAloha Pineapple Sunday, Aaron Taylor milo/spruce tenor.
-Texas (3): William King spruce/koa LS-tenor, William King macassar ebony/spruce LS-concert, Collings UC-1.
-China (2): Kala Acacia Pocket uke, Bushman Cedartone baritone.
-Japan (1): Kiwaya KTS-7 soprano.
-Indonesia (1): Lanikai zebrawood concert.
-Indiana (1): Bluegrass cigar box tenor.
-California (1): DaSilva Santos reproduction soprano.
-Maryland (1): Glyph koa Mezzo-soprano.
-Vermont (1): Kepasa Gypsy Rose concert.
It's not very surprising that the greatest percentage of my stash has originated in Hawaii. After all, it is a Hawaiian instrument. But I thought I had more China made ukes. Texas coming in second is a slight surprise, but I guess I'm a William King fanboy, so that explains it. Unlisted is the upcoming Mya-Moe that's going to be made in Washington.
Anyway, I guess this kind of shows that ukes are being made all over the place, not just in Hawaii or China.
