I have a good selection with over 50 different ukes in stock - new & used. Some are pictured below. All are setup properly before sale. Other shops don't do this but you don't want any instrument straight from the factory as the action is usually too high resulting in a difficult playing experience and out of tune fretting . Stock changes frequently so call for latest arrivals.

“They say: Kai” is the Hawaiian designation for water and sea. Thus, the brand is dedicated to the spirit of the Hawaiian ukulele culture, but does not obstruct a certain international diversity. Like the water: spacious, always in motion, and basically unstoppable. The motto “Small in form, big in sound” gets a very special meaning at Kai Ukuleles, because the second soundhole on the upper frame makes the ukulele a sound experience for the player as well. Never before has one perceived the sound of the ukulele so directly. Kai ukuleles make that possible. So now you know !!

Mahalo Kahiko Soprano Smile Ukulele £24 (RRP £32) Red ,Yellow or Blue
These heavy full-grain hide leather picks combine substance with the soft touch that only a natural product can give. Strumming your ukulele or banjo with a Jumping Cow pick opens up a whole new world of sound - warm, consistent and mellow with no lack of volume or tone.
P.S. Why "Jumping Cow"? Well, many of you will be aware that the word "uku-lele" is the Hawaiian for "jumping flea", inspired by the players' fingers moving so quickly around the fretboard while playing. These picks are made of leather and so we've substituted the "flea" for "cow" - simple! And it's better than one early suggestion - "moo-ke-lele"!!
