A-Style Dean Mandolins
To get your feet wet in the lineup, there's no better place to start than with the Dean Tennessee AE "A" Style Acoustic-Electric Mandolin. All dressed up in a vintage sunburst finish, this model is affordable on any budget and makes a great starter instrument or "daily driver" to keep at your side everywhere you go. It uses a single-coil pickup to produce its plugged-in tones, complete with onboard volume and tone controls so you can fine-tune the output. Though maybe you'd prefer a piezo pickup instead? If that's the case, check out the Dean Tennessee Acoustic-Electric Mandolin in classic black. A Dean TC30 pickup is at your service here with an onboard preamp, and at the other end, this instrument sports some vintage-style Mando tuners for a traditional look and feel.
Every luthier has their specialty, and if there's one thing that these Dean A-style mandolins prove, it's that Dean's specialty is delivering incredible instruments at surprising price tags. It wouldn't be a stretch to say that every musician has the means to own one of these mandolins - and isn't that how it should be? Music shouldn't be about who has the deepest pockets; it should be about free expression. And with what Dean has to offer, expressing yourself is an accessible thing to do!
