Where can I try one out or hear one? Do you have any I can buy right now?
If I do, they are on the wall at Ukuleles Of Felton
Come on over!
How much do they cost?
Depends on size, woods, tuners, etc. Generally they start at about $600 for soprano, $650 for a Concert, $750 for a Tenor, and $900 for a Baritone
Do I pay up front?
Half payment to start order, half due at delivery.
I accept Cash, Checks, Money order, or credit/debit cards or paypal
How long does it take?
Turnaround time is Approx 6 to 8 weeks, but it depends on my schedule. I tour on and off as a musician 9 months out of the year, so sometimes there are periods that I can not build.
Do I get a discount if I supply the wood?
It depends, but not usually. The wood it self is not always the biggest expense, some times the up charge is due to the labor involved in working it. Also, not all pieces of wood are suitable for building an ukulele.
Do I get a discount if I supply the tuners, fretwire, binding, inlay, or other materials?
It depends, but probably not. Some materials I can use, some I can't. Again the labor is the biggest expense in building an instrument
Do you do internships or take on apprentices?
Sorry, not at this time.
I just cut down a tree in my yard,
can you build me a Uke with it?
Probably not. As I said above, not all woods are suitable for building an ukulele. Also, wood must be properly seasoned (dried) over a long period of time to be stable for instrument building. If the tree was somehow special ("My grandmother planted that tree") and you want to incorporate a bit of it, we can probably do some inlay or the like.
