Cox Brothers

Made In Hawaii. Soundhole label reads: "Cox Brothers Cocolele & Curio Mfgrs. Patent No.2,098,701 Patent Date Nov. 9, 1938 711 Kaiwiuia St. Honolulu, T.H.". The Cox Brothers were Anthony G., and Emanuel Cox, from Lahaina, Maui. One of their Cocoleles currently resides in the Bishop Museum. The Cocolele was made with a body that was constructed of two coconut shell halves. The Cocolele concept has been used in many variations over the years including single shell backs and three shell backs. Some had suprisingly nice tone and volume. Sadly, the majority of the commercially available instruments being made of Coconut shells today are of the "costume" variety, and not really playable.
