Welcome to Ukulele Isle!

Home of fine, handmade Ukulele

Honolulu, Hawaii

My name is Rod Ruggiero, and I am a classically trained musician. I studied trombone with Howard Akers and Donald Knaub, and took music theory at the Eastman School of Music. Some years later I got the ukulele making bug, and with a book by Mike Chock in hand, started building. I've been building since. Thanks for checking out the site. Be sure and see the links to People We Like. Mahalo!

I am a member of The Ukulele Guild of Hawaii
