I recently bought this kit. Everything is good quality stuff, but I can't recommend the DVD to a novice. This particular DVD may be okay for someone who already knows the tunes that are on it, but if you don't know the tunes this DVD is very difficult to follow. Throughout the DVD you can watch the host play, but you can't hear what he's playing (although the backup track is there, and that will be good after I've learned the tunes well enough and am ready to practice full speed). The only time you hear the mandolin being played is during the section where he's showing how to play each tune... and you still don't get to hear the tune at normal speed because it's broken down into sections. Today I'm going to town to buy however many CD's I'll have to buy so I can listen to all the tunes that are on this DVD at normal speed. So if you're looking for a "how to play" video and aren't familiar with the tunes on this particular DVD, I do not recommend it.
Chord, tablature, tones.....good for learning and getting started.
