I had a chance to visit the Ukulele Philippines Store in Makati City, Philippines.
I took a look at some of the gig bags made by Nadela. They are made in the Philippines. I ended up buying one for a future soprano ukulele project for my wife.
This was my favorite Philippine made ukulele. The top is Tamarind (or sampaloc in Tagalog). If I don’t end up buying a ukulele with Tamarind wood, I will build one.
Here is the Filipino hero Lapu-Lapu, reimagined as a ukulele hero.
