Thomann Portuguese Mandolin 1-P

Robert814, 12.10.2015
I was so disappointed when I took this out of the bag. I sent a returns request stating that it looked like B-stock. It looks like it has been played for a year. The finish on the headstock appeared scratched and greasy. (The enclosed certificate and date of manufacture shows 29 June 2015). I was requested to send some photographs, but could not get the scratches to show up. The greasy muck cleaned away with soap and water on a very soft cloth and appears to have been an incredible excess of lubricating oil on the tuners. Having cleaned this away, it tuned up fine and sounds rather good. I chose the P1 - version 1 - because the neck and fretboard is more accessible than the P2 version with a slightly larger body. The acoustic sound may well be a bit weaker and quieter, but I'm only really concerned with the output to an amplifier. This is more playable. There are still some diagonal marks, but only on the rear of the headstock and appear to be from a buffing wheel that's been whizzed over too quickly. The back of the body also appears greasy/oily. I like the piezo transducers in this series of instruments and the active electronics with 3 band eq. (I am well impressed with the Irish Bouzouki). At this price, the overall features and playability are outstanding. The only alternative mandolin that looks good is out of stock for another 6 weeks - and doesn't have a piezo transducer. I would gladly fit one myself, but the type I want is not stocked here (or anywhere else I could find). This looks like the best practical choice and is the lowest priced mandolin with a transducer already fitted.

I play some mandibles instead of guitar mandolin, because I always liked the sound, comes with the audience well.
I bought the model 2012. That was not so beautifully processed against the photos of today's model:
1. The fingerboard was painted black. The color goes naturally at the heavily stressed places. In today's model, the spar beam is visible.
2. In order to achieve a bundle purity, the bridge must be placed very obliquely, as another evaluator has already written. This looks uncomfortable with the long wooden base of the old model. With today's model the wooden underlay is shorter. The bridge sits at an angle. This is no longer unpleasant.
The sound unplugged is good and loud. At the amplifier, the sound is sharp and can be adjusted with the tone controls to every taste.
I have relatively soon elixir strings reared. They value the instrument very much and keep it forever.
I am often asked by Mandolin players for my mandolin on the stage and praised for their good sound. If I then call the price, great amazement arises.
I am very satisfied with that.
Only a certain resonance between the body and G strings disturbs, which can be corrected a bit by the reduction of the basses. But I have consciously decided for the broad body, so that I can put them on the thigh while sitting.
Last but not least, there is also a gigbag
