YouTube: Rob Collins
Rob Collins is one of a tiny handful of full-time ukulele luthiers in the UK. He started as a builder of biscuit tin banjos, ukuleles, mandolins and guitars, hence the name 'tinguitar'. Over the past twenty years he has progressed to building traditional wooden instruments and providing an alternative to the standard "factory" designs.
From his workshop in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, Rob specialises in hand-made standard and bespoke ukuleles, mandolins and other instruments using a variety of woods from sustainable sources.
