    Beautiful! Interesting to me how the color of the tuner keys changes the feeling of the instrument. The white keys are more striking but the black keys make a "richer" looking instrument -- at least to my eyes. Thanks for showing them. Now you need a Kimble octave mandolin!

    Quite the pile of Kimbles. I can only think of one more that would really round out the collection (kidding of course, hah hah). Great instruments.

    Cheers,

    I have a Kimble A5 which I’ve had just over a year. The previous owner left it idle for years which is why he sold it. It had an amazing presence from day one but just recently, wow! It is an absolute monster! I am absolutely delighted with it.

    There is a certain "something" that Will's instruments have that's kind of hard to explain, but the words "quality and craftsmanship" come to mind. When you look at, hold in your hands and then play a Kimble instrument it becomes very apparent that this guy has really developed his sound and visual aesthetic to a very high degree. They are very hard to put down once you start playing! For me that's the mark of a truly great mandolin.
