closing in on a year with my Kinnard baritone.
While it sounded great when I first got it, it has opened up even more now and nothing I've ever played can touch it.
even thru the pandemic, it gets played daily...outside when weather allowed, under an open sided patio with heaters during the cold months.
The volume and full, clear voice are fantastic.

The neck shape is the most comfortable I've played. The side port gives the player the full effect of the sound coming out of 2 holes...and it's a good place to put the strap when in the case.

It looks like a miniature D-28...impecable finished rosewood and spruce and a beautiful 2 piece neck just add to the pleasure of owning

Congratulations John. That is a wonderful instrument. I agree with that no other baritone quite reaches the sound and playability of a Kinnard baritone.

A stunning beauty. If it's anything like my Series 2 tenor, it's voice has to be amazing.
