A tour with uncle Kamaka.

Did you know how to build a ‘Ukulele or how Koa-wood smells?
In uncle Kamakas factory you can see every detail from the history of different ‘ukulele shapes, the hole producing progress and the biggest stack of Koa-wood I’ve ever seen.

Did you know that the pineapple ‘ukulele was copyright by a Kamaka? It was good until 1960!

In the 1930s a Kamaka ‘Ukulele cost 5 bucks, now they can get  $850 up to over $2000. One reason is the price of the Koa Wood and every Kamaka ‘Ukulele is made out of it.
