Mandolin Cafe Khaki ball caps

Don't believe in reincarnation? You'd better. Short three blocks from Mandolin Cafe headquarters.

491 mandolins being played at once, all in tune with each other, of course. New Guinness Record appears to have been set. Watch.

A sad fact confirmed: there are indeed counterfeit strings being sold in the market.

In case you wondered: Wound closure more effective when surgeons listen to their preferred music.

Certainly true for this guitar: A cheap flight is not worth it if it wrecks your instrument.

Exceptionally bad photos but a great price on a Gibson A-9 (pssst, it's actually brown, not green).

New from Simon Mayor: Vol. I-II Great Tunes For Mandolin.

Start August 11-12: Matt Flinner's Summer Intensive Online Courses.
