I’m Cary Kelly, owner & builder of Mya-Moe Ukuleles.  I build professional-grade custom ukuleles using a variety of stunning imported & domestic hardwoods.


I hand-build and hand-voice each instrument to maximize volume, tone and sustain. Every instrument includes several standard features such as solid wood construction, a radiused retboard and geared tuners.


A number of great musicians have owned and played Mya-Moe instruments on stage and in the studio.


My focus is on playability and acoustics. I take pride in building ukuleles with perfect intonation, level frets, low action, smooth fret ends, and a "fast" neck--everything that the serious musician should demand, but features that are even more important to the beginner & intermediate player.


I enjoy matching the acoustic & aesthetic properties of wood to your personal taste & playing style.




Throughout the site, you'll see this image which immediately gives you an idea of the acoustic properties of the wood and/or instrument. You can also visit our sound sample page to hear the different woods on different models of Mya-Moe ukuleles.



Visit ShopTracker to see the instruments that are currently in process. You can click on any instrument or picture to see details of its progress. If you order a custom ukulele, I upload frequent pictures of its progress to your personal UkeTracker page. You can view pictures & specs for every instrument Mya-Moe has built in the gallery.


And, I have this super-cool online tool for configuring your own custom Mya-Moe ukulele!


Just choose your model and options, and you'll see an instantly updated "sticker price". Where ever you see this image, clicking on it will take you right to the "build" page.
