"I was at a festival, and there was a display of Ohana Limited Edition Series Ukuleles. I picked up one model and just kept picking it back up all day long. It became very clear that I was supposed to play that instrument. The spruce and maple give me a crisp, bright sound with plenty of sustain and a ton of volume. And the bonus is that everyone involved with the company takes great care to provide quality instruments."
