About Us

Having had an interest in electronics since he was a young 'un in Scotland building valve based radios and amplifiers he has combined his exploration into the many and varied styles of ukuleles with a love of tinkering with associated electronica - busking amps, effects pedals etc. He owns, has owned or has had experience of everything that is listed on this website and so is happy to offer these products at competitive prices.
