Amahi Ukuleles is a division of our parent company Amati’s Fine Instruments. We have been producing high quality orchestral string instruments for over 25 years. In 2011, in order to provide ukuleles for my wife’s after school ukulele program, Amahi Ukuleles was born. We are dedicated to providing high quality sounding ukuleles that are as attractive to the eye as to the ear.
Our approach to ukulele design is similar to how Amati’s approaches violin design. Each ukulele starts as a project of how to improve the overall tonal and intonational properties as well as visual appeal and playability. Each design begins with first selecting the wood for its tonal properties and beauty. Binding is then selected for its function and improvement in the overall look of the ukulele. Our fretboards on our intermediate and advanced ukulele lines are bound the same way a guitar fretboard is bound. This provides an overall wider fretboard which is more comfortable for hands of all sizes.
Our finest craftspeople professionally setup and adjust our ukuleles in Cincinnati prior to supplying our customers throughout North America. We carry a complete range of ukuleles, from entry level soprano ukuleles with decorative designs to beautiful high-end ukuleles for serious musicians.
Amahi Ukuleles is a division of the family owned business, Amati’s Fine Instruments. We are proud to have over 40 employees dedicated to furthering the advancement of music in the lives of children and adults.
