"Kevin, last December I bought a Kentucky KM-505 from the Mandolin Store. I am extremely happy and having fun learning to play it. It cost a little more that your price range, but worthy of looking at it. Good luck!"

Doug plays his accordian and picks up our Hohner for a few tunes. My mom played accordian and piano so I can tinker on them. I started on mando when I was a kid. We have Bob, an old friend, who picked up a mando for the first time when the jams started. He is the real guy you would be emulating. From beginner to one of our best musicians. He comes up from Sonoma every month. He just played for a rock and roll choir he is a member of this last weekend and David Grisham was on the same bill!
All of us are amateurs so don't be bashful.
Tony-We have a little jam here in Antelope. First Saturday of the month. Next one is this Saturday! Call me and say guitar Tony and I'll know who. 916-204-1852.
We have been jammin' since around 2005. We are all recreational players and use picks so come on over-music starts at 7pm but come early so we can get to know each other. My wife Peggy and I welcome you to our 100 year old house that was the original homestead of Antelope!
