Hamano are Chinese made ukuleles but that doesn’t mean, as it can do, that they are low quality ukuleles. Hamano make solid wood ukuleles to a high spec. When they first started doing this, they were the only Chinese made solid wood uke around which made them an excellent choice for someone wanting a high quality ukulele at a reasonable price. However, there are quite a few other companies like Kala and Ohana doing the same thing now. So there’s a much wider choice if that’s what you’re looking for.
