Australian Made Ukuleles
Doug Pudney (at Hindmarsh valley ukuleles) is a local artist, musical instrument craftsman, and luthier with 45 years of experience making instruments. Doug started making classical guitars in 1974 as a hobbyist and has since ventured into making custom ukuleles. Each of his ukuleles has beautiful artistry and a magnificent sound due to his unique carbon fiber radial bracing system. The lightweight nature and strength of carbon fiber bracing systems inhibit the soundboard from resonating. As a result, his ukuleles are astonishingly loud.
