    To say we are excited is an understatement. The Pava A5 pro will ship out to you today Greg. I hope you make many enjoyable memories playing this beautiful Pava Mandolin. Congratulations from Tom, Pava, Mary, Christian and myself!

    I never even won a Halloween contest as a child--let alone won while dressed up as a mermaid in a wagon...

    Congrats!!!

    Hi Cathy, thank you and please give my thanks to the whole crew at Precision Pearl, Ellis Mandolins, and Pava Mandolins. To say that I’m excited being the winner of this generous giveaway just doesn’t say enough. Your continued affiliation and support of the Mandolin Cafe is greatly appreciated by all I’m sure. I will look for that delivery this week and notify you when it arrives. You and the Cafe have made this ol’ Pennsylvania boy a very happy man. Thanks again and again.
    Greg

    Congratulations Greg - I'm just across the border from you (about 2 hours away) in Alliance, OH. I have a Pava, if you ever get over this way maybe we can play Pavas together!

    How great that it went to someone who needs and wants it and will play the heck out of it! Good for you Greg, and again we all have to thank the Cafe and this great sponsor for the fun we have had watching this drawing unfold.

    Well, since I didn’t win the Pava, I will just have to be satisfied with winning the “Seriously plugged kitchen drain award”!
    Two hours working on it last night and I threw out the towels! At least it wasn’t the toilet!
    Congratulations Greg!

    Hello to the MandolinCafe. Pava #271, an A5 Pro with the Autumn Burst, that I was lucky enough to win arrived in good shape this past Friday. It was a long week waiting for that delivery. What a piece of art! What an instrument! As I’ve seen written in the forum “this is more instrument than I’ll ever need” but I’m sure enjoying playing it. You’ve read the reviews (https://www.mandolincafe.com/forum/s...e-say-they-are) and seen the photos so I’ll keep this brief as promised. Again I’d like to thank Pava Mandolins and the Mandolin Cafe for sponsoring this wonderful giveaway. Here are a few pics of Pava #271.

    My two favorite pastimes are drinking wine and playing the mandolin but most of my friends would rather hear me drink wine! Adapted from quote by Mark Twain------supposedly !

    You look so darn happy in the pictures that you're making it hard for me to begrudge you for winning.

    Seriously, congratulations. I hope you enjoy the heck out of it.
    Dear sir, I am terribly sorry, but I fear I must inform you that what you are playing is most certainly not any part of anything.

    What a beauty! Congratulations on the new instrument. The Ellis/Pava team are showing off some mighty fine finish work with these instruments, that burst is stunning.
