Ashbury AM-180 Mandolin
Ashbury AM-180 Mandolin
Price: £299.00

5.0 out of 5 stars A great mandolin for Folkies, 14 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Initially had reservations about ordering this instrument from Amazon, as unlike a specialist music retailer it would only come with the factory set up, however, I have been very pleasantly surprised, as is usual with instruments made in the far east (this one is manufactured in Vietnam) the strings needed replacing straight away, and the saddle placement required tweaking for correct intonation, otherwise the instrument is great, the action is reasonably low with no buzzing, great projection and a full tone, the figuring of the maple on the back and sides is very attractive, there is no strap pin on the base but this is easily fitted, I highly recommend this mandolin

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money, 24 Jan. 2014
Yes this is a strong braided cable unfortunately it is completely useless to charge and iphone or ipad, they are not apple approved and probably for good reason, after frustrating trying to make it connect properly, threw it in the bin and have bough the approved apple charger which is fine

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent mandolin course, 29 Dec. 2013

My favorite 'how to play the mandolin' book very good value for the amount of material that it covers, I also have the mandolin for dummies book which is not bad but this one is easier to follow and work through in my view

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent mandolin songbook, 29 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is enough material here to keep an aspiring mandolinist occupied for a long long time, a very good variety of songs, with basic to advanced arrangements of each song, probably better suited to an intermediate mandolin player than a beginner though

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing product, 29 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Surprised with this item, which was ordered after reading positive reviews for it on Amazon, the case is far to thick and cumbersome, the cover does not lay flat when closed, the cover and the back are not square, very poor quality, this was immediately returned to Amazon and an alternative ipad case ordered for one third of the price which has proved to be excellent

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay if you dont require the wifi function, 7 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have now owned this Brother printer for a few months and it is proving more reliable than Epson, however, setting up the printer for use with a mac is not straightforward and the the connection appears unreliable, however with a long usb extension lead it works well, the colour reproduction is quite washed out compared with Epson or Cannon printers we have used however for black and white printing it is fine

1.0 out of 5 stars The worst guitar strings ever !!!, 7 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
D'addario strings are generally excellent but not this coated variety, I have used Elixiir nanoweb and they are great, these strings feel sticky and as though the strings are coated with rubber, you cannot slide properly with these on and your fingers actually feel as though they are glued to the string, I will never waste money on these again

5.0 out of 5 stars The best guitar capo, 7 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent capo, the tension is completely adjustable and therefore, unlike the clamp style capo's does not make your instrument go out of tune, Shubb capo's are also well engineered unlike some cheap copies which are available
