Addictive sound

This instrument is so addictive and easy to play that you'll have a hard time putting it apart. For the price you get very good construction with an unique sound to fall in love. Of course, being in D limits it possibilities but you will like it just for fun. The Sweetwater experience is always top notch, fast shipping and follow up. I'm happy with it. Get one and have fun.

Great, Unique Instrument

Genuine folk sound, easy to play and develop new sounds. Top quality craftsmanship. While it may seem limited, the Merlin provides a great change of pace and fits well as a simple tool with a pure sound. Get the case with it!


First of all the customer service from sweet water was awesome, I got a call letting me know that it had shipped. Second, it came in a day early! This instrument sounds just amazingly beautiful visually and don’t get me started on the sound. its the combination between a mandolin and a banjo and has a celtic sound that i just love and am going to add to my the music that I make. I let my dad (who doesn’t play any instruments) try it out and even he loved and could create a melody on the spot. Everyone should get one, you won’t be able to put it down!Any amateur singer/songwriter like myself or advanced musicians alike will love this little thing

When it arrived I was surprised by how small the box was - than when I openned it and found an even smaller box inside i was a bit worried. To my surprise it was perfectly tuned right out of the box and sounded great. I own a Bass Guitar and an electric Guitar as well as a strum stick, and I can tell you this Merlin does not sound anything like a strum stick - which is good because I love how it does sound.So how small is small, it measures 31 inches from end to end, that's much smaller than my strum stick, but the fretboard on the Merlin is a bit wider than my strum stick, which I like.The Merlin has four strings and seven frets. It also plays louder than a strum stick, which I also like. For the price, you will not find a better sounding or easier to play instrument, period.
