    I watched a couple of the videos and now I know it is going to someone who will do it justice. Congratulations Kyle and let her sing.

    EXCELLENT news . . . .
    I recently finished a new homemade 4-song EP of original solo acoustic songs; (sorry, no mandolin content this time). If you are interested in a FREE copy, feel free to send me your address via Private Message, and I will be glad to send you one. Trust me, it will be worth the price!

    Awesome that it is going to some one who could use it and probably could not afford it. Congrats and play the heck out of that thing.

    Congratulations Kyle! Looking forward to hearing it on your next album! Great that it is going to an up-and-coming artist, and not an old man like me.

    Here's what a happy winner of our Collings Giveaway looks like, below. Kyle is fierce on mandolin! There's a video somewhere of him sitting in with Yonder Mountain String Band and apparently he hangs out with them enough to get one of them to back him up. He's got chops!

    This from Kyle just now:

    The MT2 arrived safely on Friday. Luckily, my Dad kept it hidden for 24 hours so I wouldn’t go crazy waiting out the stabilization time. It is absolutely amazing. Love at first sight. I can never thank you guys enough- what a dream come true!

    We recorded a video of the unboxing and also got to play a quick fiddle tune with Ben Kaufmann from Yonder Mountain String Band. (Ben played along on his Collings guitar!) So we’ll be putting the final touches on that and I’ll post it to my YouTube page and send you guys a link.
