My brother bought me this for my 21st and I played it sporadically until The Wedding Present released Українські Виступи в Івана Піла aka Ukrainian John Peel Sessions. I really got into all that Ukrainian style music and followed the band The Ukrainians for a while. I played constantly and could bash out any number of Ukrainian style tunes.

Anyhow, I finally got round to restring this after 23 years!! The old strings were completely rusted, although I could still get a tune out of it!! Now, following a good clean and new strings, it sounds better than ever.

Now, where’s that Wedding Present album?

 

Mandolin
