    Pollman mandolin banjo

    Here's an interesting one that I haven't seen before, a mandolin banjo played by David Eugene Edwards that I would have taken for a mandola -- is there a difference? Edwards describes it at about...
  4. Re: First Video of The Mandolin Store new location

    Not a video for those prone to motion sickness, but fortunately it's short.

    Thanks. I really enjoyed that. Here's "Rider," clearly a blues song with a bluegrass accent, with some mighty mandolin playing.

    For anyone curious, that's a Godin A8, from Quebec, which has a fine and powerful sound un-amped as well. In fact, it's an acoustic instrument with a built in pre-amp. The only drawback to me is that...
