The FUNDOLIN Story --

For quite some time, I have wanted to design a new entry-level mandolin has all the traits of the really great instruments that compel players to want to keep playing -- a super comfortable set-up, balanced tone, excellent responsiveness, and a classic yet modern look and feel.  Now, after about 3 years of experimentation and prototyping, I am confident that the Fundolin meets these goals and is ready to play!


-- Steve Sorensen

The Fundolin takes all the best things about playing the mandolin, violin, and ukulele and brings them together in one really FUN instrument --

  *  Tuned like a Violin and Mandolin so all sheet music, beginner books, and tablature is instantly playable!

  *  Short 13" Scale length (like violins and early mandolins) -- needs only a light touch and is easy on your fingers.

  *  Arched, carved solid spruce top and mahogany back like the best mandolins and violins for fantastic TONE.

  *  Built-in Piezo electric pick-ups let you to plug in to any amp and go FULL ELECTRIC POWER!

  *  The slim and comfortable neck helps give easy fingering of notes.

  *  Adjustable height bridge, geared tuners, truss rod, and solid metal tailpiece -- just like on expensive mandolins.

  *  A beautiful clear natural finish that protects the wood, but lets the Fundolin sing sweetly.

  *  Easy to take with you everywhere in the included lightweight backpack gig bag.

  *  Sweet, lovely tone that is pleasant and delightful . . . even during quiet times or in the car.

  *  The Fundolin is handmade in the USA and is set-up for perfect, comfortable play right away!


Playing the Fundolin is FUN!
