Ukulele’s versatility and potential for musical innovation has been a well-kept secret on the isles. Anyone not aware of the uke’s multidimensional nature will be astounded upon walking into Bounty and seeing the colorful plethora of these little stringed instruments hanging from the shop’s walls and doorways. They come in all shapes and sizes, and the staff is well versed enough to get you the perfect instrument to suit your needs. 111 Hana Hwy. #105, Kahului, 808-871-1141. KB

Bounty Music takes pride in the quality of their ukuleles, and for good reason. On Maui, a guy carrying around a ukulele is as ubiquitous as eating poke at pau hana. Everybody loves that guy. The one that shakes hands with everybody, whose loud laugh gives him away in a crowd, the one that gets called “Unko” even by people the same age. But would we be as convivial if he was carrying around a violin or tuba? No. The ukulele is cherished because it symbolizes good times and good friends. Bounty Music strives to provide Unkos (and Aunties) with an instrument that is worthy of those treasured memories. 111 Hana Hwy, Kahului; 808-871-1141
