Pricier mandolins and tone
Was talking with the girlfriend hte other day about cars. She said since I wouldn’t need to drive, that she could splurge on a car when we live together. I countered with wanting to get a pricy mandolin.
I was thinking and looking up some pricier mandolins and considering the tonal qualities of some of the ones I’ve heard on mandolin recordings.
Marla Fibish’s mandolin really has a kind of mellow round tone, not sure what she plays.
Mick Moloney’s mandolin to me sounds very bright and a lot sharper than Marla’s mandolin. Not sure what type he plays.
I heard that Stephan Sobel’s mandolins are good, but not sure what any of them sound like or what they look like.
Anybody willing to give some information on some of the more pricier mandolins and descriptions or info on what type of bracing-holes some well-known mandolinists have?
