I absolutely love the mandolin and enjoy every chance I get to play it. I first picked it up for a theatre gig but quickly found it to be a huge resource of inspiration and has the ability to add some spark and sparkle to a track in ways that a guitar cannot.
I currently play Eastman mandolins and use a CT55 plectrum made by Blue Chip.
Used on the following gigs:
The John Wilson Orchestra, Ramin Karimlou, Tom Hickox, Dan Clews, Pete Lawrie, Pride (film), Shrek The Musical, Legally Blonde, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (Broadway)
