    Default Octave mandolin by Thijs van der Harst

    Hi fellows,
    here is a short clip of a beautiful octave mandolin by luthier Thijs van der Harst. I bought it in September this year and really love it.

    This is a wonderful sounding instrument. I'm going to talk about your video over on the CBOM group.

    Hey, thanks for commenting. Right now I don't have a video showing off the smart mandolin, but I will work on it in the next few days. It's always fun to share the love for great instruments.

    Cheers,
