Q. How much should I expect to invest for a good mandolin?

A: There is information about the different types of mandolin on the Mandolin Family Explained pages on this website.

Basically there are four categories price-wise:

Budget - we no longer sell budget mandolins up to £500.

Mid range - hand made or made in a smaller factory, with more attention to detail, sound and better woods - £500 to £1,200.

Hand made - professional quality, made by one luthier or in a small workshop - from £1,200.

Hand made by a famous luthier - we keep stock of mandolins made by some of the world's finest and most famous mandolin luthiers - from around £3,000 for A-styles and £5,000 for F-styles.
