Thank you for dropping in on our website. MandoMutt, Delilah (aka L’il Pup) and I are so glad you’re here and we hope you’ll enjoy your visit. Whether you’re here looking at one of our acoustic stringed instruments to purchase, trade or just “window shopping”, we hope you like what you see and that you’ll add us to your web favorites and continue to check back with us periodically to check our inventory. We have several new additions to our inventory this week including;
Skip Kelley Mandolins MandoMutt has been a huge fan of Kelley mandolins since we were first introduced in early 2009. I’m sure folks get tired of hearing me talk about how amazing they sound. I love Skip Kelley mandolins so much that I bought a Redwood topped model a couple years back and I tell folks about my mandolin all the time and yet, Kelley mandolins are still relatively unknown in the mandolin world. That may soon change, as Adam Steffey has recently taken possession of a 2015 Skip Kelley F-5. Mr. Steffey is very impressed and commented quite favorably about his new mandolin’s power, responsiveness (we’ve been talking about that for years!) and playability. Keep your eyes and ears open for some upcoming Steffey videos and projects with his Kelley F-5. Here’s a link to Adam playing his new Kelley mandolin at IBMA; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkTISFhUrdk
A word about the MandoMutt Beyond Beast Award. As many of our frequent visitors know, our very best instruments may be awarded as a Beyond Beast. You may wonder, just how do we determine a Beyond Beast. We actually have a 30 point number system and six categories, with five being the highest and one being the lowest score in each category. An instrument must score a 28 out 30, or better to be recognized as a Beyond Beast. The six categories are: 1) Tone 2) Volume 3) Fit and Finish 4) Set up and Playability 5) Appointments (bling?) 6) Cosmetic Condition (wear and tear)
Today’s Bible Verse;
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven, and forgive their sin, and heal their land.
Quote for the day; “If a republican government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the divine commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the laws.” Noah Webster
Question of the day; Can we please have an Independent candidate?
Thought for the day: Every time I visit the Walmart, they will be out of at least one item on my list. Usually the most important item. Crazy, because they’re open 24/7, but they can’t keep the shelves stocked? I’ve decided that’s what the Always actually stands for. Not Always Low Prices, but rather Aways Out of the Stuff You Need!
