Thanks for this. Greg's review is good, and your additional comments comparing the two are additionally helpful--especially to one who may be deciding between the Sindt and the Killarney (and there's a world of difference in price right now).


You're welcome! What I may not have made clear is that the Sindt is superbly well-voiced, even and butter-smooth, with a sophisticated dark tone.

The Killarney is a bit more bright and open, with that slight metallic hiss or edge people have remarked on.

If it was just about tone I would go with the Sindt. But for me tone is secondary, and the Killarney gave me a slight edge in tuning and nimbleness.
