Folkmusician is the top Michael Kelly mandolin dealer in the world. By both volume and service. Number two and three are large chain stores (not the kind of place you want to buy your next mandolin). Our extensive setup process ensures that the mandolins we sell are better than new. Do those other guys even open the box? Maybe they're satisfied if no one runs it over with the forklift before it ships out. Help us countinue to beat the corporate giants. In return, we promise to get you a much better instrument.
