DIY Ukulele KitWe all love that beautiful sound of a soothing ukulele.

I mean who doesn’t want to be transported instantly to Hawaii whether it’s physically (The ideal choice) or even just mentally. However, these kits and ukuleles have now transcended.

Rumor has it some people are bringing their own DIY ukuleles to the Olympics (Including the Tokyo 2020) to show support for their team.

That’s pretty awesome.

Anyways, a ukulele is one of the most beloved musical instruments around the world and here is your chance to make yours.

The question is which build your own ukulele kit will you choose?.

First time builder? Well this diy ukulele kit by Stewmac might just be a good fit for you. It comes with pretty much everything you need which shows the Stewmac crew really put some thought in it. Highly appreciate that.

If you’re looking for your first build, this might do just fine but the sound isn’t something I’d go crazy for. It’s good but I’ve heard a lot better from other DIY ukulele kits.

Great for beginners (Casual players) but for pros, I would look at other models.

We personally really like the ukulele tuners it comes with.
