Radical Artistic Treasures by Roy Cox • www.ratukes.com
Rat ukes are constructed to make the best use of old, distinctive, sometimes broken, ukuleles. Wooden cigar boxes are employed to become uke bodies as they are generally well constructed of fine solid woods.
All Rat Ukes are one of a kind. They are assembled when the salvagable uke parts (neck, bridge, etc.) are found that match a particular cigar box in color and size.
Established instrument building methods are used along with techniques that are developed as the need arises. Parts are obtained from various sources; catalogs, on-line suppliers and best of all, the local hardware store.
The Sparrow Instrument Company is a small family owned business located in Richmond, Virginia. Our goal is to provide high quality (reasonably priced), USA built electric ukuleles . We want our instruments to be enjoyed by everybody.
A great instrument not only plays and sounds amazing, it also serves as a source of inspiration and musical motivation! We strive to provide that inspiration with every ukulele that we send out into the world.
We oversee 100% of the production process which guarantees a great instrument every time! All of our instruments are produced, assembled, set up, and quality controlled by our team. Get your hands on one today, you won’t be disappointed!
UncleZac "The Ukulele Guy"
UncleZac has created some great cross-reference chord guides and reference charts so that “G” tunings & “C” tunings can stop fighting and play nice together!.
Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books! — Peter Rhee
Aloha, Curt, All I can say is WOW! What you have accomplished is simply incredible! All the best — Glen Hirabayashi, The Aloha Boys
