Overview

This mandolin starter pack comes with everything you need to learn how to play the 8-string folk instrument. The kit includes a Washburn M1 mandolin, gig bag, mandolin strap, picks, pitch pipe, and an instructional booklet.

The Washburn mandolin sports a beautiful sunburst finish. Honoring Washburn's impeccable craftsmanship, this mandolin looks as good as it sounds.

        Great buy as I want an instrument to hammer on. Its got a great tone. It needs a pitch pipe or a tuner though. Nonetheless, great buy and overall quality.

        I am a newbie to the mandolin. Instructions to install the bridge would have helped. However, once set up, It appears to be a good starter instrument.

        Another happy beginner

        By Steven Swanson

        from Centennial, Colorado

        Comments about Washburn M1K A-Style Mandolin Package:

        A lot more quality than I expected at this price! I already play guitar and banjo at civil war reenactments and thought it might be fun to add another instrument. Now, if I can only learn to play the thing!!!

        Comments about Washburn M1K A-Style Mandolin Package:

        if you have never played mandolin, this is a a great instrument for you to start on. This is an all around mandolin, the tone is great and the price is even better. Washburn has provided a great mandolin for beginners.

        It's alright

        By William

        from stony cree, NY

        Comments about Washburn M1K A-Style Mandolin Package:

        I can't say it was what I expected, I mean its a cheaper mandolin, but I was hoping it would be better than it is, its relativley a strong build I wouldn't say you should be worried if you bang around your instruments, but I felt the strings were cheap that were on it, and as for the rest of the package, I never used a pitch pipe in my life, and the strap is also pretty cheap, but that doesnt bother me when I have tons of straps just alying around anyway. The book that comes with it is good and shows you the basics. I would buy it if you're a beginer or on a budget, but if you can afford something better, I would get it.
