Nice playing. It shows that you can play bluegrass music on other instruments than an F-5.

that is true, this mandolin got a good tone, maybe becouse it is constructed with some quality woods. It got a solid brazilian rosewood back and sides, german spruce top, cedar neck and "pau ferro" fretboard (kind of brazilian ebony). Talking about tone this one is realy good but in my humble opinion nothing could be compared with the awesome look of the F models. Maybe I could get a quality F model when my sister visit the States in july. Here is almost impossible to find one. Anyway Im very satisfied with this one and I will keep it, it can do the job well.

Very nice playing, and I like how you were able to coordinate the video with the audio, which takes away the opportunity to mask any mistakes. Who made the mandolin? Sounds fine... even for bluegrass. :)

Thanks for your kindness, and for your comment.
This mandolin is a "Do Souto". Its a brazilian mandolin made by a traditional luthier that worked for Jacob do Bandolim and other famous "Choro" musicians (Choro is a traditional music in Brasil originaly played in Rio de Janeiro in the begining of the XX century). The brazilian mandolins use the same design and way of construction that are used in Italy. My model got a solid brazilian rosewood back and sides with german spruce top. The scale is made with Pau Ferro a kind of Brazilian ebony.
