Founded in Switzerland in 2018, Ukoo has now been remarked for the past 5 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.
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. Due to various individual improvements in our models – for example, moon shaped sound ports, special woods for fingerboard and bridge and a double bottom – we can offer you instruments with a warm and resonant sound. Our goal is to bring the joy and fun of the ukulele, an instrument known for its small size, portability, and convenience, into the hearts of people of all ages, creating a special atmosphere with its cheerful sound.
Unique Sound Ports – A subtle yet impactful feature
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 ukuleles, we get a very good balance between depth, power, and brilliance by adding two small moon-shaped sound ports.
The type of wood used in an instrument can significantly affect the sound it produces. Koa, okoume and mahogany are excellent choices due to their density, weight, and elasticity, which contribute to the instrument's overall sound quality. Our team carefully researched different wood options before selecting these materials.
