I picked up the hurdy gurdy a couple of days ago, and it is marvelous. I'm having a tremendously good time watching your videos (you and Anwyn are SO SWEET) and cranking the handle to the Joy Machine.
Thanks for all your hard work!

, Hi George and Anwyn!
Instrument arrived safe and I cannot thank you enough how beautiful it is in both looks and sound. You guys really went all out on it! Been playing around with for the last 3 weeks; the lesson book has been very helpful. Almost on cue by the time the strings started getting scratchy I came across the cotton replacement bit and it sounds back in business. Hoping to get a little better before I start showing it off but I just wanted to thank you guys so much for staying in touch and providing such an awesome instrument.
All the best and happy holidays,

In Japan, we are in the full of spring. Tokyo where I live is being the full of cherry blossoms. It is so beautiful! My la priel, I have used it 3 times for my LIVE. I am very satisfied with it and its sound. Of course, It is so happy to play it! And it has so good looking, there is no people who does not say "Oh, what a beautiful instrument!".
I continue to introduce my LIVE report using it. Today I send you the photos of la priel with Japanese SAKURA cherry blossoms. It is so beautiful!

"I am so happy that my hurdy gurdy has arrived! After all these months of waiting it was definitely worth it. It looks absolutely beautiful, the craftsmanship is astonishing. After a while of tuning and poking around I got it to make a sound and boy does it sound good. I played for
hours until my arm got tired. I own over thirty instruments but this one is now by far the most beautiful, both sound and speculation. I am also very pleased with how friendly good people Anwyn and George are. They answered all my questions and have a great customer service.

I picked up the hurdy gurdy from the Customs today. I was expecting a good instrument, as I had been looking around before buying from George and yourself....I didn't quite know what it look like in the flesh, until I opened the parcel. Well, I was stunned by the instrument. It far exceeded my imagination, and not a mark from the journey. I have a fair bit of experience in custom laquer work, from customising bike and car paintwork, and the finish on the hurdy gurdy far surpassed expectations, as did the wood-crafting. I can but compliment you both on producing a fine instrument with attention to detail. Lets hope I can start to do it justice
Many thanks indeed, and I look forward to ordering again when I know a bit more of what I want!
