Setup Options

Most people shop with us because of the extensive quality control and final setup work we provide at no extra cost on all ukuleles we ship out. However this is time consuming work and creates a delay in shipping. We are now offering an "Expedited Setup" for those wanting to receive their instrument faster. See details on the Full Setup and Expedited Setup options along with current turnaround times for each at the link- HERE.

When you buy this ukulele you can get a UkeCrazy gig bag or canvas covered hard case at an additional discount.  (Not required but suggested.) The UkeCrazy gig bag and canvas covered hard case can be seen in our cases category under the accessories tab at the top of this page. Other cases can also be chosen there. 

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco HE-360, included humidifier, for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+) at a discount. This is required if you live in a low humidity area.(parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc..) or also areas with winter seasons, especially if you are heating the air in your house. For more info refer to the ukulele care link at the bottom of this page. If you think you need to humidify the instrument, then you also need a hard case for a humidifier to properly work, and you need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed.

Excellent workmanship and nice soprano sound
I purchased my Islander at another dealer and paid $220.00 and I thought that was a good deal. I have really enjoyed this instrument and the quality sound. i enjoy playing along with many of my favorite Hawaiian recordings.
I am totally impressed with the fit and finish of this ukelele compared with other brands I own. i would not hesitate to make this purchase again.

a joy to play
This solid mahogany uke opened up a whole new world for me--the extra neck width makes many chords easier to play even for those of us with small hands. The sound is rich and sweet, with great intonation. Bonus: It's very, very pretty (the HMS photos accurately show the subtle colours). And the set-up from HMS was absolutely perfect. I couldn't be happier.

Great instrument
This is a great bang for the buck...beautiful instrument, all the frills with very little cost. It plays wonderfully, action and intonation were very good, ands she sings real pretty:)
Review by Cornfed / (Posted on 1/10/2013)
I see the Islander MSS-4 is now out of stock. I hope for the sake of future customers more come in, as this is an absolutely delightful ukulele. I was initially a little daunted because the neck is thicker than I am used to, doubtless making it easier for men to play, but requiring me to stretch my fingers. Once I grew used to the neck's girth, however, I was soon enough able to produce sounds that while not quite so sweet as those heard on Aaron's demonstration video, are a near enough rival. As another reviewer mentioned, the MSS-4 is "sensational looking." Seriously, this uke is gorgeous. The mahogany is beautifully finished, and the detail work along the body and on the bridge, neck, and around the mouth is delicate and artful. Islander kicked the proverbially can long down the road with one.

mss-4 soprano uke
What a sensational looking instrument.This was delivered to me in Australia within a week and what a pleasant suprise i got when i opened the box.It played beautiful straight away with the hawaiian tones that you hear on a more expensive uke.The wider neck makes it much easier to play if you have bigger hands and the pre delivery set was once again flawless.
Looking forward to visiting your shop in person again in May 2013 and purchase another outstanding ukulele and accesories.
Thanks again Brett
