I bought my mandolin here and have had some work done on my instruments. The luthier is OK and the work was good. The prices are what the instruments are worth so you may not find any "deals" here because the staff is extremely knowledgeable on vintage instruments and their history.

I took my 30 year old Martin D-35L guitar to this shop based on their reputation. I was stunned when I got it back after a simple setup job. I found not only 1, but 2 scratches that obviously were the result of careless, sloppy workmanship. One was parallel to the bridge saddle (indicating a slip of a sharp tool while working on the unprotected surface). The other was a long scratch on the headstock (again due to sloppy work while working on the nut). An attempt was made to try and buff this one out, only to make matters worse by creating a sheen on the otherwise mat finish. The owner tried to snow me with some song and dance about every transaction being an exchange, where I leave something of me, and they of them, like shaking hands. What a crock! Then he tried to get me to sign a non-disclosure agreement (to prevent a posting like this one) to get a refund. His lawyer just so happened to be there at the time. I refused to sign and walked out empty handed. He called me later that evening and agreed to send the refund, which he did. Never again would I entrust them with my treasured instruments.

mandolin brothers not only made sure my experience at their business wasnt forgetable they even kept me informed 3 out of the 4 days my instruments were in transit to their location and when i went there to pick them up everything was accounted for and myself and my family could not have been happier. the selection of instruments are in a wide variety so you will probably find what you are looking for.

When I wanted to learn guitar I went to this shop located on the Island and known in music circles as a place where youre going to get a great instrument and a decent price. Whats best is they take their time to let you make a decision based on your needs and not their profits. Also a bonus is at any given time youll bump into musicians known the world over looking for a new instrument themselves.

Mandolin Bros. is THE premier source of stringed instruments for serious musicians. They have a huge selection of guitars, basses, mandolins, banjos...enough to make musicians salivate! They feature rare instruments and have a huge clientele, including many celebrity patrons. The staff and Mandolin Bros. have vast knowledge of musical instruments, and the repairs that are done on premesis are second to none.
