BOOM!

So I hit the “ON” button of the new theme a little prematurely and “BOOM!”, the website went all to hell. So now I’m picking up the pieces. This might take a little while. Dang…

The New Happy Ukulele Van

NV200_concept_1.0

Coming to an ukulele festival near you!* We finally retired our 21-year old truck and traded it in for a spiffy little cargo van. It was hard to let that good ol’ truck go but, hey this one has air-conditioning! The artwork is being worked on so this is just an artist’s rendition. See you on the road soon!

*If you live within 500 miles of us anyway.

Go to Iriguchi Ukuleles!

Established in 2009

We built our first ukulele in June 2009. We’ve built 80+ more since then.

Building Green

We don’t use many exotic woods, both for cost and environmental reasons. We figure if we can get good tone from simple woods and leave the exotic trees growing, so much the better.

Fearless Design

Our designs are limited only by our imagination. As long as we get good sound we’ll try anything!

Ukuleles are fun.

They are.

So what are you waiting for?

Go try one.

You might not be aware of it, but it’s very likely that someone you know plays the ukulele. A friend, a family-member, a co-worker… someone. And if you find them, I assure you, they will be more than happy to include you. Just ask around. And if by some strange happenstance you don’t know someone who plays ukulele (trust me, you do), just Google “ukulele players group” and you’ll find lots of them, probably right in your neighborhood.

Here are some good search suggestions: ukulele players group, ukulele store and Iriguchi Ukuleles.
Wait, what was that last one?

Go see our custom shop!
Brudduh Jion at the 2014 Wine Country Ukulele Festival

You never know… that strange barista at the coffee shop with the tattooed arms and wild hair just might to be able to shred on an ukulele. This strange barista is our bruddah Jion Jugo, and yeah, he shreds.
