The 1880 Ukulele Company takes it name from the time the instrument first arrived in Hawaii. Of course, it was not known as a Ukulele at this time, but instead a Portuguese Machete. This small guitar like instrument was a big hit in Hawaii and thus, the Ukulele (or Uke) was born.
Here at Pats Music Shop, we love Ukes and are the number one 1880 Ukulele dealer in Melbourne.
Furthermore, we offer Free Shipping across the 1880 Uke range.
