It would be hard for two mandolinists to simulate the aural drama of the cello's tenor and bass register cababilities, unless of course one of them was mandocellist master Mike Marshall. It's also interesting to see the Luis and Clark carbon fibre cellos in action, of the same company that manufactures the popular New-MAD mandolins.
