Kamaka Ukulele Factory Tour – A Family Business with 101 years of Experience in Hawaii Ukuleles

Fred Kamaka Sr and his brother Sam Kamaka, Jr – the sons of legendary ukulele maker Sam Kamaka, Sr. All three are inductees in the Ukulele Hall of Fame. The children of Fred and Sam still run the Kamaka Ukulele Factory where there are approximately twenty-five employees. The factory produces a maximum of 17 ukes per day…and they are among the best in the world. Thanks to Hawaii Tiki Tours for getting us in the door here. It was awesome to get to meet Fred Sr. (And Fred Jr.) and get to talk story with them and learn about the history of our favorite istrument…the true Hawaiian Ukulele.
