The Tampa Bay Ukulele Society would like to to thank and recognize the generous contributions of our sponsors for their support of our TBUG Festival and community projects.
LoPrinzi has been the flagship sponsor of our annual TBUG Festival since the beginning in 2010. We want to thank them for their generous annual support. Those who are lucky enough to own a LoPrinzi know–it’s that almost indescribable element found in only the finest instruments. Perhaps it’s the luthier’s skill in releasing the heart-sound of the tonewood. It may be the result of decades of old-world skills, honed to the highest level of craftsmanship combined with art. It could be the care and full attention given to each instrument being created. LoPrinzi instrument building is a blending of luthier skills, knowledge and art. That’s when you’ll realize that a LoPrinzi is not only among the finest in handmade instruments, but a modern instrument with a legacy as rich as its sound.
