About

On-line Store for All Things Ukulele, Main Page

Through our family (my wife, daughter and myself) Funky Frets music store in Boyertown, PA USA, we'll be offering all our ukulele goodies, instruments, strings and accessories for sale. We'll most likely stick, initially with items that are not readily available at your typical local “We carry ukuleles but really don't know much about them music store.”. As you might guess, I along with my wife and daughter know a bit about the ukulele.

So keep an eye on this section of the site as we – your Funky Frets family – add a boat load of ukulele goodies at completive prices to the on-line store.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee
