Thread: Kimble two point reviews?

    Default Re: Kimble two point reviews?

    I bought a new Kimble two point in late 2019. First new higher end instrument I have ever owned. Great build quality, incredible playability, and all the tone I could hope for. Will was also very responsive and kind when I contacted him with a few questions. Couldnít be happier with my purchase!

    My Kimble 2-Point, built in 2010, elicits joy every time I pick it up. Iíve owned it for a little over a year. There is something about it that feels just right. I canít imagine ever parting with it.

    Yes he did, and I played it. It's a monster.

    I have played four or five of these, and not one is a disappointment. I have NBs on mine now and it's lethal.
    There's nothing better than first-hand experience.

    Excellent mandolins. Top notch artistry. Consistent and bell like up and down the neck. Great value. As someone who has owned seven Kimbles, I canít extol them enoug

    Intrigued as to why somebody would have owned seven Kimbles? I assume you don’t still own seven of them (I only have two) but what was wrong with the ones you no longer own?

    I’ve owned 6.....an oval A, two A5s, an A-style mandola, an earlier Englemann topped F5, and my keeper F5 #153. Had it for about 5 years now. Some of them I bought. A few I took in trade on other instruments I was selling. Catch and release has enabled me to experience a lot of really fine instruments. Should have kept that oval though.....

    I'm with Shaun. Once I became a fan of Will's work it has always been about playing as many of his instruments as possible to see if there's one I liked better than the one I had. A bit obsessive sure, but guess what? The three Kimbles I own now (2-point mandolin, F5 mandolin and a two-point mandola) are the best I've ever owned. There's always gonna be something out there you might like better, but all my experience with Kimble instruments has brought me to where I am right now... and it is a blissful place.

    I only know of one oval two pointer. Made to resemble Jethroís two point. Itís a great mandolin. There could be others. He made 2-3 F4s and a larger number of oval A models. Will quit making ovals 7-8+ years ago.
