What We Say

This attractive looking mandolin comes from Ashbury's Vietnamese factory where they're coming up with some impressive designs. The Rathlin is a Portuguese style mandolin with a slightly domed top and floating bridge, so by modern standards it's in the Celtic family of mandolins. It's quite deep bodied and resonant and a lot darker sounding than the similarly price Army Navy model by the same company with a more refined tone, if possibly a little less punchy.
