    Re: Kerman Mandolin status as of 2019

    The current quote is $6850. I don’t know if it is subject to change. The waiting period gives you just enough time to 1) save enough pennies to put a dent in the cost or 2) come to your senses LOL

    Re: Kerman Mandolin status as of 2019

    Well, I’m at the total opposite end of the musical ability spectrum and I never received the slightest indication that they would not be more than happy to have me order one. Hope that helps!

    Round picks

    I would like to know why, by all appearances, classical mandolin players never use round picks. Perhaps many do and I have just not observed it. Thank you in advance for your observations.
