History

A. Favilla & Sons were one of the major New York Ukulele makers. Brothers John (Giovanni) and Joseph opened their first music shop in the US in 1890. The family had been making instruments in Italy prior to that, and in 1884 they started the musical instrument making company, initially as Favilla Bros. The company made all sorts of chordophone including some violins. They moved around New York, tinkered with the name, (in the end it was Favilla Guitars inc.) and finally ceased production in 1973. Though famous now as a Ukulele maker only about 10% of their output was Ukuleles.
