Each instrument is individually hand-built, from the selection of the wood to the fitting of the strings. My aim is to build ukuleles that sound great, look beautiful and are fun and easy to play. It's important to me to let the materials speak for themselves and my design preference is one of simplicity and elegance.


Each Fidra ukulele is a unique instrument made with care by one person for another to play and treasure.




I am not able to take on any commissions at present. I have decided to take on a regular full-time job; at the moment I don’t have a workshop to build instruments. That might change in the near future. But for now, I have temporarily stopped building. I am going to keep my website active though - until I can start to build again.


In the meantime, here is a link to a timely and poignant video with the fantastic Rob MacKillop Playing Tenor #49.
