At Folkmusician, we LOVE mandolins! All our mandolins are kept in a climate controlled environment. Temperature and humidity levels are maintained at an optimum level for wooden instruments. We have all seen what happens to an instrument that was left in a garage, barn, etc. A warehouse or shop without climate control is no different. Customers often ask us "which mandolin has the best action?". At Folkmusician, every mandolin plays great regardless of the price. Why? We do extensive work on the mandolins that we sell. This goes above and beyond a simple setup.
