This quite a nice mandolin and hard case, excellent value for money. Played reasonably well straight out of the box, just needed a tune up and will fit the bridge to the top better. Am really pleased with this instrument

Great first mandolin

This is my first mandolin but I have had some experience with other string instruments. It sounds great, no sharp frets, stays in tune pretty well and comes with a great case. The only problem I've had with it is with the bridge, the saddle has too much on the bottom so I will have to take that off and sand it down for me to be able to lower the action which I am finding slightly too high at the moment.

Great mandolin

A great little mandolin with sturdy fleece lined hard case. Perfect for a beginner like myself.

Very nicely finished, easy to tune , holds tune well. Sweet sound and plenty of projection. I would have no doubt this is the best Mandolin you will find at this price and I very much doubt you would get a better Mandolin at twice the price. As Molly Meldrum says do yourself a favour!
