Cascade Series

 

" My resonator uke arrived today in great shape! I can't describe how wonderful I think it is! Everything about it is just perfect. I truly appreciate all of the patience and guidance you folks gave along the way. All three of you guys went out of your way to give me that special Mya-Moe experience. A lot of companies could benefit by giving the customer service you give. I am sure someday I will have another Mya-Moe!"

- Ray M.
