1985_F5.mp3
Simon Mayor plays two of his Vanden mandolins, a 1983 f hole, and a 1985 F5.
An interesting comparison within the limitations of the MP3 file format.
Recorded in stereo with a coincident pair of Calrec CM2051 mics at a distance of approx 8 inches with no processing at all.

New Archtop Guitar
The Art of Mandolin. Simon Mayor's new CD. Superb.
