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."

June 4, 2013 | Girouard Mandola on the Cafe Classifieds

Happy to see our friends Max and Lauri with a new addition to their line of Girouard mandolin family instruments. The latest, a dazzling 15.9" scale autumn-burst mandola, posted for sale in the Mandolin Cafe Classifieds. Lauri tells us "It has a 15.9 scale that keeps it easy to play and mando stuff is easily transferred over. The slightly longer scale with thinner gauge strings and top graduations give an even tone and volume and not a floppy C string."

Price posted is a reasonable $1925 and if it's anything like the A-body mandolin we reviewed (and purchased!) last fall, it should make someone very happy. The Girouard mandolins have grown quite popular lately, with sale to both national and international markets.
