Apologies if this has been discussed before; it's a long while since I checked out youtube for Radim Zenkl vids, but I just found a new one (to me anyway):
Radim Zenkl - Pegaus' Descent
I've been hoping for news of the Breedlove 4-string for a while. Nice to see the pic on Mandohack's NAMM 2008 thread. Not too keen on the block inlays, and would have preferred some kind of stop tailpiece, but that's a subjective opinion and Breedlove would probably offer custom options anyway - a blonde/natural one would suit me
I do love the sound of this instrument; the dola tuning and 15.813inch scale length helps give the mandola a rich voice. Anyone know if these are just specials, or does Breedlove intend to go for a production run?
Nice playing by Radim on the vid BTW
