Nice little music shop, specializing in ukuleles of all types and shapes, some expensive made of Koa wood, and some not so expensive. They also sold Martin guitars, and picks of various sorts as well as giving ukulele lessons. Very helpful staff.

We went to Hanalei Strings to buy instruments, jokingly asking if they had banjos. We walked into the store mid-morning and were the only customers. The guy reading his computer at the desk was one of the rudest people I've ever encountered. He made it...More

Wife and I took a one hour lesson. Large group and we all got necessary attention from a fine instructor and his son. Learned quite a bit, loved every minute, and we got some wine.
