"A big thanks to Paddy Cleere for making my new bouzouki. It's exactly what I was looking for and has lots of individual touches, from the choice of bindings and exotic woods to the narrow neck profile I asked for. It sounds great too." - Luke Deaton

" My name is Adrien Coquelet. Teacher of Irish fiddle music in Lille (north france). It's Andy Irvine himself (from planxty) who told me to try Paddy Cleere bouzoukis when i asked him where to fine a good instrument at the good price.
It's a real good piece of handcraft ! It look as beautiful as it sounds great. The sound is powerful and warm. It's a real fine instrument made with passion by paddy, a man who likes the well done job.
I really don't have any regrets " - Adrien Coquelet
