Stringed Instruments

I am excited to introduce my latest work ~ a unique new design, which is to be the basis of a new series of nylon string instruments.  The first instrument of the series is a concert ukulele.  With many innovative design features, this uke is not only radically different in appearance, but distinctive in sound as well.  Its surprisingly warm, sweet, and sonorous voice has been said to marry the tonal qualities of a traditional ukulele with a mandolin, a lute, and a banjo.  With a very wide dynamic range, it is capable of everything from delicate melody to aggressive “bark”.  It is serious fun to play!
