Mele Ukulele – Where Hawaii’s Musicians Come To Shop!
Located where Wailuku town meets the city of Kahului, the original Mele Ukulele retail store has been a favorite stop for Maui’s top musicians for almost 20 years!
We carry a wide variety of ukuleles, from the classic soprano size to the “guitarlele”, and we’re located just downhill from the Iao Valley State Park, on Kaahumanu Avenue just before the historic Waiale Bridge.
We are open Mon. thru Sat. from 10 AM to 5 PM. Our new store at the Shops at Wailea (see below) is open 7 DAYS A WEEK from 9:30 AM to 9 PM.
Everything for the Ukulele Musician
Whatever you need, if it’s ukulele related, we have it!
We have ukuleles, ukulele cases, ukulele books, ukulele tuners, ukulele amplifiers, ukulele music, even a resident ukulele artist! Frequently, you will find many of Maui’s top musicians engaged in “kanikapila” (jamming Hawaiian style) at the store.
Kealii Reichel, Uluwahi Guerrero, Arlie-Avery Asiu , The Hula Honeys, Kamaka Fernandez, Ikaika Brown and other Maui musicians who come by and pick, strum, sing, etc.
Not to mention visiting Hawaii and Mainland musicians such as Jesse Colin Young, John Fogerty, Mike Myers, Jack Johnson, Raiatea Helm, the Brown Ohana (Ikaika and Uncle Kevin), and Eric and Amy Gilliom, as well as Bonnie Raitt, Jimmy Buffet and most of their backup band members, when they are in the Islands.

OUR NEW STORE at the SHOPS at WAILEA is a bit smaller than our original store, but packed with the finest in ukuleles and accessories.
In addition to Mele and all the other fine brands we carry at the Wailuku store, we have some all-koa ukuleles entirely manufactured on Oahu, such as Kanilea and Koaloha, some vintage ukes by Kamaka, Martin and other world-famous makers, a few totally unique instruments from local luthiers!
