Well, this was certainly unexpected.

Making Music magazine had a drawing for a new Ohana Vita Uke.... and I just got an email from them telling me I'm the winner.


AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They told me that they'd be mailing it to me tomorrow, unless I let them know otherwise, so I just dropped an email letting them know where I am, and they can send it to my secure mailing address, I'll get it in about 2 weeks.

Man! I can't wait - but I'm not leaving California early, just to get a ukulele! (g)





Well, if it was a National or a "K" brand, maybe...

Congratulations, Kurt! Now when you go to Ukulele Source, you'll be immune from UAS. I haven't had a chance to play one of those Vitas, but they look sweet.

Congratulations! But you will probably still find something at the Ukulele Source you want. I am still dreaming of that KoAloha Soprano that I left behind....

You are going to be stoked on the Vita Kurt- they are a ton of fun. Mine is nearly sawdust.

I've been remiss- never posted any samples of the Vita after receiving it, BUT....

Here's a ink that Fitncrafty posted, when I went to her house to jam the night before Irene came to visit. (That was Irene, the big blow-hard, August 28, 2011).

I'm playing my new Sceptre, and Carrie is playing my Ohana Vita.

For some reason, she offered to care for it while I'm away...

Congrats on winning the new uke. That's pretty cool to win something . . . anything, especially a uke. Stopped in at Ukulele Source and it looks like someone just bought three ukes out of a new shipment of Kanilea's he received last week as well as the pineapple Sunday. Must have been a good day for Smiley.
