I take PayPal.  Simply send the amount to sweetmusic@protonmail.com make sure your SHIPPING address is included (not your billing address) so I send it to the right place.  I ship via FedEx Ground.  You can also pick one up at my studio in Granby, MA.  Use the Contact form on the sidebar to let me know what you'd like to do.

The Pup has a big, brassy sound for a puppy-sized instrument.  Slightly smaller body makes this infinitely portable, standard-length neck and fretboard with wide and extra-wide widths mean the Pup is infinitely playable by any size hand (from children up to adults with big hands).  

Adam plays one in Mandolin New England.  Check the events schedule to see when he's playing next so you can try it out!
