    As promised. Two recordings made in a quick one hour session on a portable digital recorder. Ignore the mistakes in interpretation please, the musician had just few minutes to try to adopt to a narrow Fabricatore neck and nut in comparation with modern Knorr mandolin that she usually plays. Newer played early Neapolitan mandolin before.
    Recording is a streight download from a recorder, untempered in any way. Little dry.

    In live, the sound is impresively large for a small body and can easily be copared with Knorr. Slightly on a bright side, but it is unplayed instrument with a new set of Lenzner - Fisoma "Bronze" low tension strings. Balance seems to be good, playability on the easy side. I was told that the set up is well executed. Instrument is fully playable.

    Mozart Kanzonette No. 16, and Pietro Denis "Capriccio No.1

    I hope that this MP3 links will work, if not I will upload it on youtube.
