Testimonial & Video

"I am in love with this thing. I keep it at my side. I've started taking it to old time jams. So cute, so punchy, so light, so good." "Wow!! I received the Firefly yesterday. It is beautiful! What craftsmanship! I couldn't hope for a better looking uke. Sounds great. It has a place of honor on my wall... next to my Flea."
"I own a vintage banjo uke and have always been disappointed in it. It's heavy and I never could get it in tune properly - it always sounded somewhat 'sour'. On the other hand, your Firefly Banjo Uke was playable right out of the box." "It's light, comfortable to play and has a wonderful ring to it. Thank you for such a wonderful instrument at an affordable price. I highly recommend it to my friends."
