I am VERY pleased with my purchase of my kantele! The caftsmanship is supurb and the sound is so so beautiful. Actually when I play it people tell me its "enchating". Its an easy instrument to learn and worth every penny I spent on it. I just wish I had found your company years ago when I first got into playing music. Also, your staff I found very friendly and knowlegable over the phone in helping me in choising the right instrument for me. I just love my kantele, and I can't keep from playing it! Thank you so much for everything!

I received one of your beautiful 10-string kanteles back in December 2011 and I am absolutely loving it! I am giving a presentation tomorrow and performing for the first time on my kantele. I will definitely mention Musicmaker's Kits. I also ordered sheet music, extra strings, and a case from your company which I received quickly and in perfect condition. I love folk music from all over the world and it's incredible that you make and sell so many great instruments from different cultures. I will keep recommending your beautiful, affordable instruments to my friends who also enjoy playing. I'll keep in touch!

The new Kantele is lovely. Just what I'd hoped it would be - beautiful piece of mahogany and very pretty tone. Tried it in a little recording with 12 string (slide) and some synth (a string quartet!). Rather a doleful piece but I like the timbre of the kantele with the 12 string.

Hi, Matt!

I've watched your Kantele video so often, I feel I almost know you personally. Anyway, I received my Kantele last week, May 4, and it arrived in perfect condition. In unpacking it, I was at once impressed by the visual beauty of the instrument. With its' long, graceful line and gentle angle, it looks like a piece of modern sculpture, but still has an air of centuries about it. The mahogany and walnut woods are beautiful, and the snowflake rosette is just the perfect touch. All in all, my Kantele speaks quality and expert craftsmanship, and I am completely pleased and satisfied.

So, Matt, I would like to thank you and all the guys at MM for your kindness and good service.
