    Default The first mando of my son's and 2nd of J.Boviers

    Hi everybody, I am Thai people and also live in Thai. Here is hardly to find anybody who play mandolin and mandolin instrument. At the first time I buy mandolin in Thai is not aprreciated to me. As I always see many forum in Mandolin Cafe.com to find out which mandolin is suitable for me.

    Of course. As I'm a foreigner, I cannot play any instrument before make an order. So it is necessary for me to check out many dearlers who deserve for me. Many mandos in classified is more interesting but for me like a blind man. So I have to rely on whoever do the difficulty for me. The one who do for me is to select any mando which is fit for me in variaty of my wants

    I choose Mr. Kyle /Mandoshop who anxious to understand me as my weakly English. I sent some video clip to him and discuss together to what exactly I want. Fortunately Mr. Kyle understand my voice (video clip) and he serve me warmly and break through my wall and final to help me find the best at the time of mandolin.

    I bought J.Bovier A5S 2014 model as the 2nd one and found that J.Bovier is going to the next step of development and with the good set-up from Kyle. I don't need to do any thing only play and enjoy with. Mr. Kyle claim his set-up mandolin like cutting bread. I am not eating bread but I can say like eating water.

    I told Mr. Kyle this deal is not the last time. In the near future if my son is still playing mandolin, I have to buy the next upgrade and surely I do with Mr.Kyle.

    Hello - Welcome to the Cafe & very well done. It takes courage to cross the language barrier in the way that you did, & it ended by your son having a nice mandolin to play. If he wishes to play 'Bluegrass Music',then what he needs now is to listen to as much of it as he can,that way he will come to understand not just what the mandolin does,but what all the instruments do. That is very important because the mandolin is only a 'part of Bluegrass music'. I hope that other people will be able to say which mandolin tutor books will help your son - i have never used one so i can't tell you which one(s) to buy,

    Thank you to Ivan Kelsall, my son love to play bluegras, celtic, and classic songs. I like your words (what all the instruments do) may be it take a time to awareness.

    Ping, welcome to the Cafe, and welcome to the JBovier family! I also bought mine from Kyle, and found everything you say to be true. He's a great guy to work with, and he does an excellent job. Good luck to you and your son on your mandolin journey!

    Welcome to the Mandolin Cafe Ping! Great job choosing a fine mandolin and thanks to Kyle & the Mandoshop for all the assistance! The J. Bovier is one of the best values in the mandolin world.

    And Chang is off to a great start playing bluegrass!!

    Thank you to Grommet,Before I bought 2nd J.Bovier. My son plays only my J.Bovier. It 's truly that he start with the best one (1st J.Bovier) and of courses now he play only 2nd J.bovier. I accept that 2014model is quite better than 2013. At first I nearly to buy other brand so as to have more various experience but lastly I still choose the same and found mine 's correct.

    Hi Ron,

    Happy to know that you will come to BKK end of this year. Look forward to see you soon.
    Currently, I cannot play along with my son since my son like to play very fast speed.
