So I'm sitting here with my arm wrapped up tight in a sling. My shoulder surgery went very well but the rehab is a slow and methodical process. I can't get into the worksop so there's nothing else to do but update the websites. Yay. It's my favorite thing. I wonder if...read more

The Happy Ukulele
The Happy Ukulele is an idea or perhaps a point of view. It’s a way of looking at the world from a positive perspective and trying to move in that direction.
With that in mind, we’ll be showcasing our handbuilt, custom ukuleles. We’ll link to videos of musicians we dig and post other other elements that align with our perspective on our blog.
This is where we’ll post all of our upcoming festival appearances.
The Happy Ukulele…yep, that’s us. It’s our custom shop.
Cutting edge ukuleles designed and built in Carmichael, California. Each one is unique and we try to build as green as we can.

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