Construction materials will also play an important role in your decision about which mandolin to purchase. Ask any mandolin enthusiast and they’ll all give you a different answer on which wood your mandolin should be made of. Generally, spruce wood is a pretty reliable option, though beginners may want to consider a laminated top as they can offer a better entry level point before you make the decision to upgrade.
Believe it or not, the finish on your mandolin can also have an effect on the sound quality of your instrument. A mandolin without a finish can pick up dirt and oils from playing, leaving your instrument with a less crisp, almost soggy sound. On the other hand, a thick finish can keep your instrument looking its best, but it can also take some of the quality out of the bass and thin out your treble range. Though it may not be something you initially think of, this is still definitely something to keep in mind while making your purchase.
From the pop-country style of Taylor Swift to the Irish Folk-Punk of the Pogues, the mandolin is a versatile instrument for musicians of all levels and interests. Adding one to your original songs will definitely add a level of character you, your band mates, and your audience are sure to love.
