Mandolins for sale

April 05, 2016

Mandolins for sale.  Now there is a sign you don’t commonly see! Mandolins are a rare instrument at the local level. Even the largest cities will rarely have more than a few dealers that stock mandolins. Of those, you will often see the same handful of brands and models represented.  So you eventually turn to the web and start searching. Now you find a much broader selection of mandolins for sale. Still, you have to wonder, is it safe to buy a mandolin online? You often hear that it is not a good idea to purchase an instrument without playing it first.  In most circumstances, this would be true.  There are so many pitfalls to shopping online for something like a mandolin that most people would prefer to buy locally. Unfortunately, this is not an option for 99% of the population.  For the majority, there are no mandolin stores within driving distance. This is where Folkmusician comes in. Located in the northern section of Nevada at the base of the Sierra Mountains, a shop likes our’s wouldn’t exist if not for our world-wide customer base.  We have become a goto source for mandolins. I guess this isn’t surprising. When you spend as much time as we do working on, listening to, looking at, and talking about mandolins, you tend to become what some might call an “expert”.  As mandolins experts, we can provide much better insight than a guitar shop or full range music store can.

Please browse through our selection of mandolins and let us know if you have any questions!
