Koa Ukulele

Koa Ukulele

We are honored to be the only retailer selling ukulele made by Hawaii luthiers Keith Maile and Tomas Braverman.

Keith Maile has been a fan and follower of music arts all his life. Keith is also devoted to wood crafting. He believes that making fine ukulele is the perfect combination of his two passions. He began making ukulele several years ago under the mentorship of fine luthiers including Joe Souza, Dan Nakanishi, Daniel Westphal, Rollo Schurenbrand, Kyle Nakashima, Sonny Badar, and Michael Chock. Keith Maile is a recognized native Hawaiian artisan and cultural practitioner.

Tomas Braverman creates tenor ukulele in the island of Kauai. Each instrument is made by hand using highly figured Koa. The grain is carefully selected and positioned to emphasize the beauty and movement within the form. Tomas is educated in Spain, Portugal, and Japan where he mastered the Renaissance and Baroque traditions of furniture making, wood carvings and bronze sculptures. Since moving to Hawaii in 1993, Tomas creates ukulele reflecting Hawaii’s rich cultural heritage.
