The Recording King RAM-3-TS A Mandolin, Solid Top, Tobacco Sunburst

The Dirty 30s Mandolin is the perfect instrument for troubadours, songwriters or multi-instrumentalists who want a mandolin that delivers classic old-time sound without the price tag of a vintage instrument.

The Dirty 30s Mandolin is a traditional A-style with vintage appointments. Despite the price, it’s more than an entry-level instrument. We’ve focused on details that other builders in this price range overlook: the f-holes have been specifically shaped for sound aperture and the 1-¾” body depth was chosen specifically to accentuate its tonal capabilities.

The solid spruce top gives the Dirty Thirties mandolin classic chop and projection, while the maple back and sides balance brightness and warmth for traditional old-time playing.

For vintage mojo, it’s stained tobacco sunburst, covered by a thin satin finish. The classic A-style body connects to a comfortable C-shaped neck with an authentic mini-Recording King Jubilee headstock. Ivory tuners and classy MOP fretboard dots give it a rustic but refined look.
