11 String Kanteles

11 String Kanteles are one of my favourite Instruments. This year I am supplying a free copy of the tutor book by Arja Kastinen with each order placed. This is a fabulous, great sounding and playing Kantele made with Cherry wood frame, Cedar soundboard and hard beech pin block for reliable tuning complete with the Tuning Key mounted underneath, the culmination of my 16 years making kanteles, now added to my etsy page for quick order or with a through my website if you require a case or extra decoration like runic inscriptions.

11 String kanteles,
my very best!

Acoustic and Electric Ukuleles

Electric Ukuleles are one of the rarer items I make, represent the capabilities of the electric guitar in a Ukulele format. Standard models in maple, and English Ash are available to order with oil finished bodies and Nitro finished necks. See my Ukulele pages for more information on these. This year I am also making tenor and Concert acoustic models again, this time from native timbers like apple and Cherry and select sustainable exotics, these start at £400 for the 12 fret Concert model. See my Ukulele pages for more information.
