About us

Tyde Music is located on the North Shore of beautiful Lake Tahoe, and was founded by luthiers Tyler Joersz and Devin Price in 2010. Both apprenticed under Cline, master woodworker and founder of Roundwood Furniture and are self taught luthiers.

A trip to Hawaii and the love of music inspired friends Tyler and Devin to take the furniture cutoffs from Roundwood Furniture to build their first ukuleles. The company currently makes ukuleles, guileles, cajon drums, didgeridoos, stomp boxes and other music accessories. Innovation, creativity and a non-traditional approach allow them to build great sounding, gorgeous, and comfortable instruments that are easy to travel with.

Tyde Music loves wood, and understand it is a valuable resource to our planet. While they do use some exotic woods, they prefer to use local, reclaimed, and sustainable woods in their instruments. Salvaged furniture scraps, materials they have actually reclaimed themselves from local piers, landfills and materials from contractors looking to reduce waste from remodels have all been used.

Music makes the world a better place. It has become a great passion of theirs to build musical instruments, and share their talent with the world. To build a beautiful and great sounding instrument is what it means to live within art and music.
