In Japanese, Ukiyo translates to floating world, and it is here in his floating world that Marc Schoenberger endeavors to translate wood into something as perfect as a sunset and ethereal as a full moon. His goal has always been to build a professional grade instrument. That means an instrument that is commanding in volume, tone, and sustain. An instrument that has no dead notes or loss of volume and articulation in the upper registers. An instrument of simple but perfect appointments with the playability and craftsmanship that a ukulele of this stature demands. Marc Schoenberger believes excellence is achieved when knowledge is combined with the patience to apply it. Building hundreds of instruments over the last several decades has also lead him to put a part of himself into each creation.
Fine aged woods, experience, and attention to detail make Ukiyo one of the finest ukuleles available at any price.
