Ukulele That Shines in the Dark - Where did it come from?

The Waterman Ukulele pays tribute, in part, to the legendary ukulele designer Mario Maccaferri.

Mario Maccaferri:

Mario Maccaferri (1900 – 1993) was a laudero Italian, classical guitarist, businessman and inventor. He is famous for designing the guitar preferred by the jazz musician Django Reinhardt , and for inventing the plastic clip, the plastic bathroom and the kitchen tiles and the islander ukulele plastic that sold millions of copies in the mid-twentieth century. From 1939 he lived and worked in the United States. As of 2016, her daughter Elaine still runs the family business French American Reeds Inc.

Inspired by the 1939 World Fair,

"I saw plastic as the material of the future."

Mario finally combined his skills as a laudero and his injection molding business and invented the Maccaferri Ukulele. After being approved by the artist Arthur Godfrey, in its television program, 9.000.000 of the Maccaferri ukes were sold between 1949 and 1969.

KALA He has taken the Maccaferri concept and took it to another level. The innovative Waterman is of high quality; accessible that sounds great and stays in tune. It is portable, to take anywhere! It's the ultimate in ukuleles for the outdoors. Take it to the beach, the river, the lake, the mountains.
