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…
Sounds Cool Gunnar.
Skip to 3.33 and check this amazing sounding instrument
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
Here’s another video, it’s a portion of a tune I wrote, which you’ll hear in full shortly
One more, on a beautiful arch top guitar
So how much does one of them fancy instruments cost?
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
This one was really cool!
