The Hale Ukulele Set

Hey, Folks! These next two ukuleles were an important set for me. They were commisioned by Ric and Monica of Hale Ukulele in San Diego. They wanted me to design and build a line of ukes to be sold as there store brand, but made by Leeward Lounge Ukes.

The first one is a beautiful myrtle wood uke with a MiSi pickup installed. The second one is made of curly mango. Both of them turned out terrific with a nice, mellow tone and a good amount of volume and pop.

There will be minor changes to design on the future Hale builds, like a smaller look to the bridge, but for the most part we're on our way!

I want to give a special thank you to Ric and Monica for their trust, support, and this amazing opportunity. Please check out their website, , or better yet, stop by their store if you are in the area.
