Mandolin vs Octave Mandolin
Of those of you who own both a mandolin and an octave mandolin, which do you use more when playing melodies? Which one do you like more? If you forced to give up one, which one would it be?
My reason for asking is quite simple. I have and play a mandolin and I am considering buying a real OM as I have a small four string guitar tuned to GDAE on which I use to play fiddle tunes. However, the guitar doesn’t have right sound.
So before I make the plunge to buy a new OM, I would like to have
some experienced opinions as to the ease of playing and differences between the two instruments.
