Most folks don't know that as early as 1907 F.H. Martin was experimenting with ukuleles. By 1920 Martin ukuleles had gotten so popular that they had to double the work space at the Martin factory and add workers to keep up with demand. Today, Martin is still building a line of high quality ukuleles that are highly coveted around the world. They are beautifully crafted (as you would expect from any Martin instrument) and a pleasure to play. From the tenor sized Israel Kamakawiwo'ole Commemorative Edition to the little Martin S1 we think you will be mightily impressed with the tone and playability of Martin ukuleles.
