Amati’s Fine Instruments has been producing high-quality orchestral stringed instruments for more than 25 years. In 2011, when Michael Schear’s wife began a school ukulele program, Amahi Ukuleles was born. Blues Angel Music has included Amahi Ukuleles in our lineup for years, based on their popularity in our weekly ukulele classes.
Each Amahi ukulele starts as a project of how to improve the overall tonal and intonational properties as well as visual appeal and playability. Each design begins with first selecting the wood for its tonal properties and beauty. Binding is then selected for its function and improvement in the overall look of the ukulele. Amahi’s fretboards on intermediate and advanced ukulele lines are bound the same way a guitar fretboard is bound. This provides an overall wider fretboard which is more comfortable for hands of all sizes.
We always have a great selection of Amahi ukuleles in Pensacola, so come on in and play a few, then take one home. If you prefer shopping from your couch, check out our current inventory here.
