Kuun instruments videos (me playing)

Here’s blackberry blossom on a Murray Kuun mandolin, it’s got a port Orford Cedar top and Walnut back and sides. It was strung up the same day as I played it, so needed a little breaking in, which I gave it…

Other than the first set of strings being out of tune, it sounds great! Are you in a city playing this, or is Mr. Kuun our in the boonies?

Thanks Mark! This one had very fresh strings on it, and I couldn’t keep it in tune.
He’s in Johannesburg, and I was traveling through, so I stopped in to demo some instruments for videos

More than I have…
He sells new fiddles for around $4500, mandolins for a similar price, I don’t know about the guitars.

He did have a new old stock fiddle that I played that he said he’d sell for about $450, which made me rather sad that I hadn’t the money, cuz that was an awesome fiddle
