Welcome to Ukoo – Your Ukulele Store
Founded in Switzerland in 2018, Ukoo has now been remarked for the past 3 years for its instruments that score with sound, design, and attention to detail. We are a small, community-oriented team with a large amount of experience in different areas: engineering, top-class violin, and ukulele making. We also benefit from the professional know-how of various musicians. Ukoo’s strengths lie primarily in our passion for acoustics and our commitment to quality – each instrument is individually checked and set up before being shipped to our buyers from around the world. Ukoo Shop relies on great quality and customer service.
We sell a range of ukuleles of different sizes and styles with prices starting from around 170 francs, such as a soprano model, 12 to 14 special designs, 8 to 10 concert models, and 4 to 6 tenor models, all of which are developed in Switzerland. Thanks to our experience as ukulele producers, we pay particular attention to high-quality craftsmanship, the best advice, quality service, and a good experience in our online shop.
On our “Custom Order” page you can also order professional and amateur instruments with a large and high-quality selection of tonewoods.
Due to various individual improvements in our models – for example, sound moons, special woods for fingerboard and bridge, double bottom, sound bridge, the optimal placement for the pre-amplifier, etc. – we offer you our instruments with a great sound effect.
Our goal is to bring the joy and fun of the ukulele – this small, portable, and handy instrument – into the hearts of the young and old. The sound of a ukulele always creates a special atmosphere. Regardless of whether you are a beginner or an advanced player, the ukulele is easy to learn and therefore suitable for both beginners and professionals who rely on high-quality instruments. If you are looking to buy a ukulele, you are in the best of hands with us.
The Ukoo team thanks you in advance for your trust and wishes you an unforgettable sound experience with your new ukulele!
Your Ukoo loves the details
The great detail of our ukuleles is the sound port. This is an extra hole in the ribs of the ukulele. This pierced hole provides more breadth in the sound and ensures a pleasant feeling when playing the instrument. The tone sounds freer and more sonorous. However, the correct size of the hole is of the utmost importance, because if it is too large, the sound of the tones becomes more diffuse. This manifests itself in a loss of definition in the heights. We determine the size and position of the sound port for optimal sound. Because the position of the hole also has an important influence on the way the sound is made.
By adding small moon-shaped sound ports, we achieve the perfect balance of depth, power, and brilliance and can offer this to you in our range.
Wood is one of the key elements of sound. Due to its density, weight, and its elasticity, it itself determines a color for the sound.
We researched and experimented with many combinations to find optimal connections. We value koa because it is very traditional and classy. The mahogany is beautiful and also excellent for the tone.
Your Ukoo Ukulele Loves The Details
A sound port is an added hole pierced in the ribs of a guitar or ukulele. This gives the sound much more breadth so the instrument becomes freer and more sonorous.
However, if the hole is too big, you lose the definition of the treble and the sound is more diffuse. That’s why it’s so important to accurately determine its size. The place where the hole is drilled is also very important for the way the sound comes out of the instrument.
On our instruments, we get a very good balance between depth, power, and brilliance by adding two small moon-shaped sound ports.
Wood is also important for the way the sound comes out. Because of its density, weight, and elasticity, it impacts the way you hear the sound. We chose Koa and Mahogany after much research and experiments.
