Absolutely Brilliant! (for the price)

26.01.2016
Harley Benton HBMA-50 Mandoline VS is amazing for the money. Bought as an impulse purchase and now proudly in my collection of instruments. Ideal for a beginner or someone looking for an A-shape mandolin for travelling/festivals. If you're looking to learn seriously I would recommend purchasing a mid range upmarket model. I was pleasantly surprised with this purchase and recommend.

Pros:
- Spruce top, basswood body, teak neck, rosewood fretboard are surprising high quality.
- Rosewood Saddle is great.
- Attractive instrument

Cons:
- Finishing patchy and not perfect at times.
- String only "okay", if possible change

It's undeniably budget - but fine to learn on

19.12.2016
If this is your first mandolin, you are not going to be disappointed. It's fairly well made for the price, though the finish, especially the edging does have several imperfections, and I've seen better tuners on home made cigar box guitars.

It will require a good setup to get the best from it, but the intonation and playability right from the start were surprisingly reasonable. The sustain is also pretty good.

This mandolin has a bright and well projected sound, and physically it looks pleasing enough.

My only real issue with it is the quality of the tuners. They seem to suffer from 'loose spots', which makes fine tuning awkward.

With that said, if it splintered into a thousand pieces tomorrow - I would still buy another one.

It arrived quickly and very well packaged in a huge box - Thomann never disappoints. (Though I had hoped maybe the orders were mixed and I'd been sent a cello when I saw the size of the box!)
