Pickin' and Grinnin'
Budding musicians will find this unique, four-stringed mandolin is an easier way to begin learning the classic folk instrument. Using the included pick and songbook, you can start learning to strum your favorite tunes.
A traditional mandolin has eight strings tuned in pairs to the same pitches as a violin. Those doubled strings give the mandolin its unique, twangy sound, but they are also difficult to tune and require extra hand strength to play. This four-string version is tuned the same, but is considerably easier to use. Instead of traditional pegs, the strings are adjusted using zither pins and the included tuning wrench. Solidly built with swirling contours from maple and birch, it will continue to be a go-to instrument for traveling or campouts, even when the player graduates to the full-fledged instrument. Handmade in Rochester, NY.
