Kepasa Ukulele Luthiers
Kepasa Ukuleles are custom made by Kevin Crossett in Middlesex, VT. Kepasa Ukuleles are available in soprano, concert and tenor models, many of which are inspired by vintage ukuleles such as the LeDomino, Hollywood, Vita, and other makes and models from the mainland yesteryear. The Kepasa Madeira is influenced by the Dias style soprano, and the Kepasa Gypsy Rose is influenced by the early Selmer-Maccaferri gypsy guitars. All models are optionally available with the Mi-Si Acoustic Trio pickup system, as well as other pickup options.

Outdoor Ukulele Luthiers
The Outdoor Ukulele is injection molded from glass fiber filled polycarbonate. This high-performance composite plastic creates a very strong structure with exceptional tonal quality.
Outdoor Ukulele™ is a father and daughter manufacturer of composite polycarbonate instruments. Scott does the design, development, and assembly. Grace does the marketing, photography, and customer relations.
Recently, some overseas manufacturers began using the Outdoor Ukulele™ name on their plastic ukuleles. Some have even advertised using "Composite Polycarbonate" construction. These instruments are actually made from ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene), and they will not have the resonance or durability of the Outdoor Ukulele™.
