About Our Ukes

Our daKine 'Ukulele are crafted using unique and standard blends of wood, topped with years of knowledge and creativity, served on a plate of lots of fun and smothered in Aloha! 

Each one of our designs, besides being attractive, nice, quality ukulele also have a "bowed". The reason for this, is to allow the sound to resonate at a slightly deeper tone. Traditionally the smallest of ukulele (Soprano) has the "Tiny Tim" sound. By design, we have engineered this into a deeper, more pleasing sound, that easily fits into adults with small hands or children. This designed is carried into all of our ukulele. We also have pegged our ukulele so it will comfortably sport a guitar type strap (see ukulele straps) providing a level of comfort and safety (you don't want to drop your uke!) .Lastly, ALL of our ukulele come with a padded soft case (unless stated otherwise) with an outside zipper pocket for your "stuff". We believe ALL ukulele should come with a bag to cuddle your daKIne! With care and Aloha, your daKine can last for generations to come.
