Cascade Series


" Having observed the comments written by other customers regarding their Mya-Moe ukuleles, I can only affirm all of the positive accolades they have lavished on you folks and the instruments you build. I was "shocked" by how incredibly light the instrument is and the clarity and sustain of each note. From the perspective of a fellow artisan (also working in wood), your attention to detail and execution of the building process sets a standard that few others are, or will be, able to achieve. I am thrilled to be the custodian of this ukulele! It will have a special place in my life and in my heart."
