    • Hello,

      I have just received the new barbat and I must say this is one of the amazing instrument I've ever seen and I saw a few.
      The sound is deep and powerfull... everything is so build accurated. It seems like this instrument was born as a one piece :-)
      Surely this is a masters piece!!!

      Thanks very much Brothers...
      Piece to all...
