I am happy to announce that I have partnered with Manea Ukulele Co. and will represent and endorse the company and their finely crafted instruments. After meeting Hector Bernaldo, and trying some of his instruments at the Foster City Polynesian Festival, I was impressed with the quality of materials, workmanship and attention to detail that goes into the making of a Manea custom ukulele. But most importantly, I love the sound and feel of a Manea custom ukulele. The quality of sound and level of musicianship is heightened by a well made instrument, giving the player and listener a deeper and more pleasing sense of enjoyment. This is what I look for in an instrument. I am excited to be a part of the Manea Custom Ukulele ohana and look forward to working with them in providing and offering their wonderful instruments to all ukulele enthusiasts.
