I am an amateur mandolin player inspired by the late Andy M. Stewart and Stan Rogers. Only recently did I realize neither of them really played the mandolin a whole lot. More recently I've been busy learning guitar and bouzouki since I've discovered I like the deeper tones and notes of those instruments over the mandolin.
If you're curious about my Mandolin(s) and other instruments:
M1090 Hora Irish Concert Bouzouki
x4 Irish Tinwhistles,
A trumpet I used to play in middleschool,
and a very rusty hunting horn in D.
I'd go out and get something better than the RM-100A, but I'm attached to it because it's my first mandolin, and more importantly I put a really nice sticker on it.
I hope to replace it with a 4 string Domra one day
