Irish Bouzouki brands stocked include:
APC -  made  by Antonio Carvalho in northern Portugal,where there is a rich tradition of folk stringed instrument playing and making.They provide a very good alternative  to similar priced bouzoukis on the market,with an authentic feel,sound and larger body design.Great value instruments.Please note that on the models with inlaid rosette,the inlay designs will vary.
 
ASHBURY The Ashbury range has been designed in consultation with UK Luthier Phil Davidson,they are a refreshing change from the usual generic production line Bouzoukis.
 
Lofthouse
Brian Lofthouse,based near Castlebar Co. Mayo has been making instrument since the 1980's producing beautiful and exceptional value,hand carved archtop mandolins,octaves and bouzoukis.We currently stock his short scale bouzouki with hand carved top which is based on a model that was custom ordered for well known Irish folk musician Johnny Moynihan.Usually with European spruce top,the back and sides have so far been made with either walnut,maple or rosewood.
 
Ó Ráinne   20km west of here in the Irish speaking Connemara Gealtacht, Luthier Donal Ó Rainne is making each  Bouzouki by hand to a very high standard.He often uses native Irish tonewood such as walnut.
