Winners of the Acoustic Challenge 2012 Are…


February 20, 2012 by Tim

Without further a do…the Grand Prize Winner is……
Dana of Malibu CA!!! for her video of Teen Spirit

There were so many great entries, and sorting through 163 was crazy. I could not be happier with the turn out of this contest. You all made it a hard choice, but out of all of them Dana( also known a ukuleleginge on UU) stuck out. It was innovative, fun, and very well done. So everyone congratulate her.
HERE is a link to all the videos that were submitted to YouTube.

What about the rest of you?

Good question. I wanted to send everyone something, but when it came down to it I had to limit it to 15 people, very sorry. To Send out 71 Kazoos would have been really expensive. I am not going to name all of them, since some have not been contacted, but I do know the winner of the other Eleuke!
Michael (Known as ReaderMO on UU) from Omaha NE was the lucky winner!! I think he made 12 videos? so he had 12 entries to win at random.
Some of the other prizes are a bunch of cool stuff I was able to get at NAMM, one being a press bag with a ton of stuff like stickers and other fun things.
I will be contacting 13 others to tell you if you have won at least a few stickers and a branded Kazoo.

The Kazzoos

All the winners are going to get a gold Kazzoos. I have pulled all the gold ones for this contest, so if you see one you will know that that person is a real winner, or at least at this contest they are.

Thank you all for entering, it was so awesome!!

    Thanks be to God for random drawings! And thanks be to Ukeeku for this contest!

    I just started gigging again for the first time in over 10 years, and i had forgotten how annoying it is to mic an acoustic instrument (especially if you have a rather robust voice!) i can’t wait to plug this bad boy in and go to town!

  4. Such a fun contest for our very first! 🙂 Thank you, Ukeeku! HUGE congrats to UkuleleGinge. Her entry was my favorite by far. ADORABLE!!!

    What an amazing rendition of Smells Like Teen Spirit. A worthy winner. How fitting that this song win and also be announced on the 20th of Feb, the day that would have been Kurt Cobain’s 45th birthday.

    I’ve really enjoyed watching and entering this contest! Thanks!
