So far so good - it was recommended by experienced spinners and I do like it a lot. But for someone who has never owned a wheel, I found the instructions inadequate - definitely not step by step but just a schema with the final put-together look. I had to use several You Tube videos from other places to figure it out. Other than that, first rate product.
I bought the unfinished Kromski Sonata and I love it. I stained it a turquoise blue to match our southwestern New Mexico home and she is just lovely. I’ve been spinning on a e-spinner for quite a few years and was worried my knees would be bothersome, but this wheel is so smooth that I don’t even notice my knees. It’s easy to take anywhere with me and I love it. It was a great purchase
I've had my Kromski Sonata wheel for a few weeks, I absolutely love it. The craftsmanship of this wheel is so nice. It treadles so smoothly, making it such a joy to spin on.
First, this is my fourth wheel and the Sonnata is the best. The construction and the mechanics are of superior quality. The Kromski’s have thought of everything you need. All the parts were included, and it took only ten minutes to set up and the wheel is quiet. I love the beauty of the wood and wooden bobbins. I have already spun and I am happy with the service and how quickly the wheel arrived. The wheel is by far the best wheel I have owned.
