    Default Rukavina electric mandola

    I just got my custom 16" scale electric mandola from Ryan Rukavina. He does beautiful work, and this thing is a little wooden jewel! Ryan hand makes his own pickups, and it sounds great through a small tube amp. Check out the bridge! Video/audio later.

    A little Autumn Leaves, recorded through a Peavey Classic 30 with some reverb:

    The Ruk sounds great. Nice playing too. Is the Peavey classic 30 a tube amp?

    It is a tube amp. It was turned down, so it sounds pretty clean. The mandola sounds a little grittier through my old harmony 5 watt tube amp.
