We have always been a brick and mortar here on Oahu!
A few years back we moved to the North Shore.
Come check it out! Hundreds of unique models to play!
Take the first exit for Haleiwa coming up the H2 North.
We are a 1/4 mile up the road on the right side right after Tesoro Gas Station.
Big sign on the building says The Ukulele Site.
However most of us work at a workshop in Wahiawa setting up, shipping, filming and more.
That address is 401 North Cane St. Wahiawa 96786.
Hi folks, and thanks for checking out our site!
In January 2005 I opened Hawaii Music Supply after working with my family for over 10 years, finishing and setting up custom Ko’olau Ukuleles.
My wife and I started HMS with only ukes and we eventually came back to that focus. At this point, I get the pleasure of giving back to the community that supports us with educational resources, inspirational pictures and sound clips, and personal help and setup. But I wouldn't be able to do this alone.
This is a team effort. We work for you and offer more than products. We offer a service and are able to help you with our experience and skills. .
Email me direct at: email@example.com or my work # is (808) 781-9168, call anytime, I am always happy to help.
Joel is a crucial member of our team. He manages the setup department with an honest and diligent work ethic like no one I've ever known.
His skill and focus have enhanced the enjoyment of this instrument with many thousands of people.
Joel has been setting up ukes full time for over 8 years now and estimates at least 30,000 setups in this time. His natural talent for this work is a big part of what makes us the best value.
Joel originally trained under Michael Aratani (Music Guy Mic). Now Joel's workshop is next door to Ko'olau where he is able to seek advice when necessary from Noa and Ryan, some of the best luthiers you can find.
The result is that Joel has become a specialist with not only extensive experience, but also with accurate guidance and proper luthier techniques.
Joel can be reached but understand that he is very busy with setups and we ask you direct all questions but those involving the setup to another one of us. But if you need him he is available at (808) 783-3588 or Joel@theukulelesite.com
Corey has been up at the store full time for many years. You'll see him at most of the sound samples here and also has an ukulele album you can see here.

Zach is another key to our success. He oversees shipping and customer service. Zach is as genuine as they come and can most likely help with anything. Contact him at (808)783-3696 or Zach@theukulelesite.com
Zach is also an amazing musician and has a really creative duo with Eli call Sing the Body. Their last album won a Na Hoku Hanohano award!
Chris has worked along side Joel in setup for about 7 years now! Chris is a meticulous technician and takes great pride in the art of his setup and his experience and effort make him another essential member here. He's a bright and positive and consistently improving the instruments you buy. Contact Chris at Chris@TheUkuleleSite.com
Eli has floated between setups and helping out at the store for the last few years but he's full time setup right now. He's been a part of our team for many years and is a great help for advice and information. He does great setup work and is always friendly and helpful. Eli is also one of the most versatile and talented musicians I've ever known. Contact Eli at Eli@TheUkuleleSite.com
Billy Dominick has been a luthier for 40 years! He worked with PRS for many years, Taylor Guitars, and most recently was running the repair department at Blue Guitar for about 10 years before moving to Hawaii. He's a wealth of knowledge and experience and is doing awesome setups full time for us now.
