I understand the difficulty in quantifying value, but it costs nothing to subscribe to a channel compared to purchasing an album. In his video on Charvel's site, he calls himself one of the original YouTube guitarists having launched a page in 2005. It just seems like a small pool of subscribers based upon the amount of time he has been around. Again, I think he is a great - no, make that an amazing - player, but I literally learned about him today in this thread. Its awesome that Charvel is making an instrument for him, but surprising at the same time because he is not terribly well known.
