Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

October 23, 2010 | Classifieds find: Old Wave Mandola w/Cedar Creek Case

We're a little dola fixated right now. There's nothing like the range of the mandola to produce rich fundamentals for jazz and accompany voice. It's a very satisfying range to listen to, and have vibrate in your lap.

We did a review on a lovely Old Wave A-body vintage sunburst mandola a few years ago, and this lovely instrument recently showed up on our radar in a seductive blonde incarnation. Seller appears motivated, as the $2100 is an extremely reasonable price.

Actually, it's kind of a steal:
