Details

The absolutely unique, pristine and inspiring uke you are looking at right now is an Oulcraft Ukulele, remember the name because these Ukuleles offer something at the high end that really pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from the Ukulele. Using modern production methods these Ukuleles compete and learn from all of the hard work many of the very best Japanese and US builders have been producing throughout the last decade. When I hold these instruments I am reminded of Kanile'a, AnueNue and TODA whilst also getting a fair amount of the flavours and sensibilities of the best smaller workshop outfits like Sumi, Barron River and Pete Howlett.

Oulcraft comprise of 3 gifted builders and designers; Jungtae set up the Oul studio in 2011 having worked previously in Japan building custom acoustic guitars for T's Guitars. He trained under the extremely talented Shinji Takahashi known for Seilen Ukuleles. He is joined in the workshop by his brother Hyuntae - the unique design element of the Oulcraft Ukuleles is down to Jungtae's wife Seoyoon who has an extensive design history in various industries. The synergy that this team create is extremely refreshing, a family approach with a mixing bowl of excellent design ideas, a wealth of craftsmanship experience and modern techniques. We are delighted to be Europes first Oulcraft dealer and to be able to join them on a new voyage of Ukulele design as the company hits it's second decade.
