    Yes, that's why I brought up the point about Apollon and Ostrousko - neither one of them slouches when it comes to tremolo. I wonder whether domra playing has anything to do with that, or if it's just a coincidence.

    Cremonese / Brescian mandolin might be an option?

    I find it rather strange that there would be two thread bumps concerning four string acoustic mandolins, one from 2009 and one from 2010, on the same day.

    Ooops, I hadn't even noticed until you said that that both are more than 10 years old and bumped by the same person!
