The following Instruments are available for sale. I would never recommend buying an Instrument without playing it. If you would like to try out a mandolin, please contact me so that a time can be arranged. This may prove difficult in these Covid times but I would hope we could arrange something. Instruments are supplied with a gigbag. I do not do PayPal or have Credit card facilities so any payment would need to be by Cash or Cheque.
