So why is this bag relatively expensive? One reason is the quality of craftsmanship and the attention to detail from the design to completion. But beyond that is the quality of the leather and how it's processed. Turns out there are many levels of "genuine leather". This is "Nappa leather" which is first and second layer, there are three layers below that that are loose and fibrous and then held together with chemicals to make "genuine leather". Beyond that is how it's processed.

This bag was made with the finest raw hide and has that natural beauty. But that's partly because of how it was tanned. Tanning is the process that changes the animal hides into long-lasting stable leather. There are two main processes that tanners use: vegetable tanning and chrome tanning. This leather was vegetable-tanned.

Chrome tanning uses synthetic chemicals (mainly chromium) to tan the leather in only one day. Most of the world’s leather is made using this method, which was invented in the 19th Century to allow for the mass production of leather goods.

Vegetable tanning is a traditional method that was refined by the Italians, Spanish and French during the Renaissance. Only 10% of leather is made using this natural process, as it is more time-consuming to produce and relies on experienced craftsmen to create the vegetable-tanned leather.

Raw hides are placed in pits or barrels with natural tannins from tree barks, roots and flower pods and are left for around 40 days to tan. Only a few tanneries have the capacity, skill and patience to produce vegetable tanned leather but the end result is environmentally friendly and each piece of leather is unique. Vegetable tanned leather changes continuously over time as it develops a patina, much like wood darkens over time.

Rebel didn't just decide to make another ukulele gig bag. They decided to make one on par with the highest quality bags and wallets that the high fashion market prices many times higher than these. This is not inexpensive because it's not cheaply made. It's high in quality and super attractive. You're gonna look great with it!

Setup Options

 

Current Turnaround Time: Amount of time before shipping-
Full Setup: 7-11 Days
Full Setup RUSH: 2-4 days
Basic QC Only: 2-4 days

Basic Quality Control - $0.00 (Always Free)

BASIC QUALITY CONTROL covers inspecting the instrument for any major defects that would have been missed by the factory and any faults in construction that could potentially damage or limit the functionality of the instrument over time. Any defective instruments are rejected and replaced.  We make sure that each Ukulele meets the basic standard for a brand new instrument and will be ready to play once you receive it. A final cleanup is also included after inspection before packing and shipment.

Full Setup - $40.00 for Ukuleles Under $399 / Free for Ukuleles $399+ 


Includes:


-Overall QC evaluation: To find defects in construction as well as to get an overall view of the instrument and note the areas that need extra attention and adjustment during the setup.

-Saddle Adjustment: The height of the saddle is lowered to reduce the distance between the strings and the fretboard, making it easier to play than the factory setup, especially higher up the fretboard.

-Nut Slot Adjustment: The depth, width, and angle of the nut slots are adjusted to create a more comfortable playing experience especially on the lower frets.

-Fret Dressing: After adjusting the nut and saddle heights, high spots in the fretboard or uneven frets will potentially cause fret buzz, dead spots, or other unwanted problems. The frets are filed to create a more consistent level across the fretboard. We then crown the frets to return their rounded curvature back to the top of each fret creating a clear contact point for each string. We then smooth and polish the frets and condition the fingerboard to bring them back to new condition.

-Final Cleanup: We always do a final overall cleanup of the instrument to make sure it is in new condition and ready to play before it is prepared for shipment.

Rush Setup & Delivery - Additional $50.00
The RUSH SETUP AND DELIVERY service is for customers who would still like to receive everything included in the full setup but on a shorter time frame. One of our setup technicians will work overtime outside of normal business hours to complete the setup within 2-3 days of the order being placed and immediately hand it over to the shipping department for packing and shipment. The $50.00 rush charge is in addition to the cost of the full setup. 

Additional services (see individual product listings to add these services to your order)
Re-stringing: We will replace the factory installed stock string set with a new set of your choosing. Select the “replace stock strings” option when adding your desired string set to the shopping cart.

Strap Button Installation: 1-2 buttons are installed to allow the use of a strap. Color options available. 

Pickup installation: for players who would like the option to play or record with amplification.

Friction Tuner Upgrade (friction tuners only): We offer upgrade options for select instruments with friction tuners to be retrofitted with new geared tuners for better precision and comfort when tuning.

Left-handed Setup: Left-handed setups are also available upon request. Occasionally an additional charge may be added for compensated saddles on select models.
