Today's edition of the St. Petersburg Times features a front page article on Clearwater based ukulele builders Augustino and Donna LoPrinzi. The Tampa Bay Ukulele Society is referenced in the article too. :D

Here's an online version here (http://www.tampabay.com/news/humaninterest/shop-in-clearwater-is-source-for-ukuleles-sought-worldwide/1151287)

Thanks for sharing the article! I love my LoPrinzi Model A. I picked it up at Spruce Tree Music in Madison, WI this past November.

I've had my eye on this for a while. Remind me--who here has the Model A besides gnordenstam?

Great article & since my daughter introduced me to the uke, its great to see a father-daughter business around musical instruments. Have to own a LoPrinzi someday.

Great music you and your daughter are creating. She has very nice voice and the Apology Song is a thrill. Thanks for the links.
