Listing Info

from the Spanky Banjo Ukes web site

Spanky Banjo Ukes are built by luthiers Dan Fobert and Phil Morris. Combining Phil’s longtime love affair with the ukulele and Dan’s creativity and innovative construction techniques, with input from other uke players they have developed an idea for an instrument built in the traditional way but utilizing up to date features. Spanky Banjo Ukes use a longer, wider concert scale length neck for easier play and a synthetic head to eliminate the problems natural skin heads have with changes in humidity. The advanced Renaissance and Fiberskyn head materials produce a mellow natural tone while maintaining plenty of banjo volume and punch.

Listing Info

from the Talina Ukuleles web site

UkuleleWorld.Com brand of premium items made to their recommendations and specifications.

We do not use rare and exotic woods in constructing Talina Ukuleles as we want to protect the rare trees in ravished forests. We believe that good design and careful craftsmanship in building a ukulele can more than offset the benefits of "Brazilian Redwood" and other rare woods for such instruments.

Our goal for Talina Ukuleles is for each instrument to give you the most-smiles-for-the-dollar that you can buy.

In short, Talina Ukuleles are made for Texas size fun. These instruments are carefully crafted in China.

NOTE: Each higher access level includes ALL the benefits of the lower levels. Private Lessons include all the benefits of a Premium Access Plans as long as you remain a student on the schedule.


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

Aloha, Curt, All I can say is WOW! What you have accomplished is simply incredible! All the bestGlen Hirabayashi, The Aloha Boys
