I’m Cary Kelly, owner & builder of Mya-Moe Ukuleles.  I focus on building a professional grade custom ukulele using a variety of stunning imported & domestic hardwoods.


Each ukulele is handmade and hand-voice to maximize volume, tone and sustain. Every instrument includes several standard features such as solid wood construction, a radiused retboard, geared tuners, solid wood body and fretboard binding, and hand carved bone nut and saddle.


A number of great musicians have owned and played a Mya-Moe ukulele on stage and in the studio.


My focus is on playability and acoustics. I take pride in building your ukulele with outstanding intonation, level frets, low action, smooth fret ends, and a "fast" neck--everything that the serious musician should demand, but features that are even more important to the beginner & intermediate player.


I enjoy matching the acoustic & aesthetic properties of wood to your personal taste & playing style.




Throughout the site, you'll see this image which immediately gives you an idea of the acoustic properties of the wood and/or ukulele. You can also visit our sound sample page to hear the different woods on different models of Mya-Moe ukuleles.



Visit ShopTracker to see the instruments that are currently in process. You can click on any ukulele or picture to see details of its progress. If you order a custom ukulele, I upload frequent pictures of its progress to your personal UkeTracker page. You can view pictures & specs for every ukulele Mya-Moe has built in the gallery.


And, I have this super-cool online tool for configuring your own custom Mya-Moe ukulele!


Just choose your model and options, and you'll see an instantly updated "sticker price". Where ever you see this image, clicking on it will take you right to the "build" page.

"Cary, I can’t put it down. I’m so happy with my new ukulele and also so grateful for all the work, care, attention to detail and experience that have obviously gone into making this beautiful instrument. This uke’s journey from your shop was an unexpected adventure. It made it home thanks to the kindness of a stranger. In her honour, I’ve named it Mack. Thanks again"
