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!

    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.

      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.
