    Comments about Musician's Friend Black Mandolin Starter Kit:

    I'm self taught with a musical ear, played acoustic guitar in college eons ago. I got the bug again and decided to try my hand at double 4 string rather than 6. I purposely bought new strings as I expected cheapos to come on the mandolin, I broke one adjusting the bridge and tuning.
    The RM-100A is awesome with a fresh set of strings. Incredible value for anyone learning your chops or even a novice wanting to expand your repertoire.

          Comments about Musician's Friend Black Mandolin Starter Kit:

          I want to put to rest the negative reviews. I have been playing music for years and this mandolin is a great starter. Anyone who plays knows that string instruments can come out of tune relatively easy especially when the strings are new and stretch a lot after a few days the mandolin stayed in tune just fine. As for the sound even expensive instruments need set up to obtain optimal sounds. Also I think people blame the tone for lack of skill if you give zakk wylde kirk hammett or Eric Johnson a cheap guitar they will still be crazy good. This is a great instruments for anyone to play until you find one that just feels right.

          Better than what other reveiws make it out to be.

          Comments about Musician's Friend Black Mandolin Starter Kit:

          Many reviews I read mentioned that the madolin is lacking in the quality department. Specificly the f hole cut outs, sustain, sound, ect. Upon receipt I examined the cut outs and found them to be clean and well cut. No fibers still hanging on from the manufacturer. I found the sound and sustain of the instrument to be more than satisfactory. The action needs to be adjusted first thing, but that is a given on instruments with adjustable bridges during shipping. The tuners have some slop in them but they hold once you get it set. I was a little concerned after reading other reviews of this instrument but I found others horror stories to be untrue. You're getting a great value for the price.
          The kit comes with quite a bit considering the price!
