Thank you for dropping in on our website. MandoMutt II, 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 be changing, as Adam Steffey is playing Kelley mandolins these days. Adam took possession of a Skip Kelley F-5 in 2015, but recently exchanged it for a new Redwood topped Kelley mandolin. Here’s a link to Adam playing his 2015 Kelley F-5 at last years 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 receive the much coveted Beyond Beast Award. 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;
Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Quote for the day; “They whot would give up an essential liberty for temporary security deserve neither liberty or security. Benjamin Franklin
Question of the day; Why do news people and other assorted television talking heads always tell us who they are repeatedly during a single news program? Is it really necessary to announce your name a dozen times in 30 minutes?
Thought for the day: If you want to protest and march against our new President, that’s good and fine. Blow off steam, cry, whine, do what you feel you need to (Lord knows I did my share for the past eight years!), unless of course you didn’t vote. If you didn’t vote, sit down and shut up!
