Can’t say enough good things about the staff at Ukulele Experience. They were so friendly, accommodating, and helpful. They found out it was my wife’s birthday and most of the staff gathered together with ukuleles and drums to sing happy birthday. We asked them to do the same for my sister who’s birthday is next week so we could record and give her the song for her birthday and the staff were so accommodating. Also, a ukulele was one of the things I wanted to purchase while visiting Hawaii. Corey was so helpful and helped me find a ukulele that I was looking for and that fit my budget.

I had a great experience here. People ready very friendly and thoughtful! When mentioned that it was my daughter's birthday, all staff members came out, grabbed an instrument, and gave my daughter an instrument and sang happy birthday to her. Her smile made my heart melt. Oh yes, I bought a great sounding Kanile'a Ukulele.

Lovely showcase how of the ukuleles are assembled in side of the shop while dedicating the rest of the area to nice ukuleles you could pick up, try out, and purchase. Very vibrant atmosphere and friendly store assistants.
