We know a little something about making ukes. Our proof? As the world’s oldest surviving ukulele builder, we’ve been busy turning out high-quality instruments since the 1910s. We channel all that experience into giving you a great looking and sounding uke you could play on stage, in a studio, or just for fun with friends on a beach.
Find your perfect uke.
Whether you’re a seasoned player craving gold standard tone or a beginner on a budget who wants an instrument that’ll sound great for years, Martin has your next uke. We craft tenor, soprano, and concert sizes made from real wood, so you can find just the right sound. And if you love traditional tonewood, Hawaiian koa models are also available. There’s a Martin uke with your name on it; just look around a little
Martin’s first tenor ukuleles rolled off the production line in 1929 and have been a favorite of countless players since. This is the largest ukulele we make, giving you extra volume and projection.
Martin has been building concert-sized ukes of world-renowned quality since 1925. Smaller than the tenor, but larger than the soprano, the concert ukulele is a well-balanced, easy to play uke, perfect for anyone just starting out.
The first Martin soprano ukes were made in 1915. The smallest ukulele we make, the soprano offers a bright, traditional tone and is the same size as the ones first made in Hawaii back in the 1880s.
