The Mandolin is a gift that I haven't given yet but it looks beautiful and the price was great! Thx
Product was perfect. Eastar had great stuff.
Just learning how to play . A shade different than a guitar, but I love to learn new instruments .
I haven't played it much yet, but it seems to be good quality and craftsmanship. Stays in tune quite well.
We have a few Eastar instruments, and they all are amazing quality for their price range. Nice sound (no, not the same as a $1000 instrument, but definitely not bad). Nice fit and finish.
The instrument is great for a beginner looking to play the mandolin. Everything included in the package is all you'll need to get to plucking and strumming away immediately.
I bought this Donner mandolin A couple of months ago and out of the box it sounded wonderful. It was packaged perfectly and Had everything you needed to get started from an extra set of strings to an awesome tuner that I now use for all my instruments. After two months it still sounds wonderful I love picking it up to get that different sound.
Shipping was very fast, and good quality.
Bout for my GF and she loves it she is a small girl and she can easily play it. Nice sound definitely a beginner piece but that's what I was expecting.
This is a great beginners Mandoline, it sounds good, pretty well made, great value for the money, I just need to learn how to play it, I'm getting better but I still to far from it
Excellent product! I’m just learning how to play the mandolin and this was a great purchase! Comes with a lot for the price: carry bag, tuner, spare strings.. sound was really good. It sounds as good as any other mandolin I have heard. Glad I found this purchase to learn on!
Great purchase. I bought it for my husband for our anniversary. He has wanted to learn how to okay for several years. Really good for beginners.
The mandolin is perfect for beginners for the price, I expected it would need constant retuning but that is not the case tuning holds up well. The shell feels thin but If you take care of it shouldn't be a problem .
Have a lot to learn on this amazing & fine-crafted Mandolin ... couldn't ask for anything better ... excellent mellow tones ... fast service, good value and WOW instrument ... what more could you ask for?
I am a beginner in the mandolin, but my expertise in other instruments will indeed help me learn this instrument rather quickly. This particular mandolin has a wee bit of trouble staying in tune, and it could be because of the strings that came with the instrument. Other than that, it is a good instrument for beginners! It looks great, feels great and sounds ethereal (when it's in tune).
Our family owns and plays a lot of instruments. Yet, I only know 6 chords on the ukulele :/ My son wanted a mandolin for his 14th birthday. He already plays the viola, violin and piano, but wanted a strumming instrument beyond guitar or ukulele. This mandolin sounds great, holds tune well, and he loves the looks of it. :)
Bought this as a gift for my brother. He is visually impaired and plays instruments by ear. I've been wanted to buy him a mandolin and when I came across this one it was perfect . Beautiful instrument !
I have thoroughly enjoyed this mando for almost a year now. I wasn't sure if I'd like playing mandolin so this was an inexpensive way to try it out. I do enjoy it, but will hold off buying a more expensive instrument since this works well. Once you recieve it, take it to a local guitar shop so that they can set it up properly. It will be the best $40 bucks you ever spent and will vastly improve the intonation. This goes for all stringed instruments, not just this Donner. Next, sign up for some lessons, especially if you are new to strings, so that you can really start to enjoy yourself. The case has held up well and the tuner's not too bad. Have fun!
This mandolin is great. It is not a 400.00 dollar instrument so don't expect that. It is a great instrument for the price. The company is also amazing. I had an issue with one of the strings and they helped me out with no problems. If you are looking for a beginner instrument get this package!
I ordered this mandolin as a "test drive" to see if I'd like the mandolin. For the price point, I wasn't expecting much more than functional, but the instrument had a surprisingly good tone out of the box. It also keeps is tuning extremely well.
This is a great beginner mandolin. Not very expensive.. affordable.. Plays mostly in tune... looks great.. built well for the price point.
The string height is adjustable.
Great item and fast delivery! A+++ seller
Always wanted to learn mandolin, so was pleasantly surprised I could buy one for so cheap, and with all the accessories. It arrived in a timely manner, and to my eyes and ears, looks and sounds good! I'm enjoying it as is. So glad I bought it!
I've been a guitarist since I was 12 and my family got me this mandolin for my 53rd birthday. Loving the journey.
This mandolin is great. It is a great instrument for the price. The company is also amazing. I had an issue with one of the strings and they helped me out with no problems. If you are looking for a beginner instrument get this package!
Product was received well packaged and without any damage. The gig bag is well padded and seems to be well made. The Mandolin was Easy to tune and for a novice, with in an hour learned my first song! I'm looking forward to practicing and learning about my Mandolin. Awesome instrument, well made and and sounds as good as higher priced Mandolins. HIghly recommended for All whom wish to play a Mandolin.
Very good Mandolin for the money! Please keep in mind for the money. This is not a solid wood Kentucky Mandolin. The fit and finish are very nice. Tuned it up and played for one hour. Decent action and good overall sound. Very good Mandolin for a beginner or someone who is more of an advanced beginner to intermediate player. The case fits the product very well - it is not to big or to small - just right and snug. The tuner is a nice addition as well.
yes for the money this is totally worth it. It really does sound quite nice when it's tuned up and it comes with a nice variety of accessories. If you have never played mandolin before this will do just fine until you feel prepared to jump to the next level. It was my first mandolin after playing guitar for 10 years and I think it sounds just fine.
I play the violin and I wanted to learn to play the mandolin without spending a lot of money. This combo was just the thing I needed. It does the job just fine.
This is a nice Mandolin for beginners like me. Excited to learn how to play it.

I looked at a lot of Mandolins for a beginner. This was a perfect choice for me. I have a guitar, bass and banjo that I haven't played for awhile. Decided to start playing again to try and help my peripheral neuropathy. The small neck on the Mandolin helps me more easily get my fingers in playing shape which helps make it easier for me to play my other instruments. I really like this package which included a nice bag, picks, tuner, extra strings and a polishing cloth. Glad for the extra strings as I broke one while tuning the Mandolin. I'm a beginner, but I like the way this Mandolin plays and sounds. Seems to be built well. Nice looking. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to learn to play the Mandolin. It's a small investment to find out if you will like playing the Mandolin. The playability and sound won't discourage a beginner. I am thoroughly enjoying this instrument. Playing music again is so much fun and I believe playing is helping my peripheral neuropathy.

I have always wanted a Mandolin but was always put off by how expensive they were. When I saw that this was available for only 120USD, I thought I couldn't really pass it up. I was kinda expecting it to be poor quality but I really am blown away by the craftsmanship and the sound. Everything on it is just as it should be and finished to a very high standard. A friend visited me and had a play with my Mandolin. He said it much better than his which coast more than double what I paid. I can only play 'losing my religion' at the moment so Im kinda driving my girlfriend a bit crazy, but I absolutely love it.

Awesome Mandolin, but there are minor scratches. Appreciate for extra wires, picks, tuner and carry bag. The bag has smooth zips.
Perfect shine of the product. Price is perfect. Sounds very good.
My boyfriend loves it! Sound is great and fast delivery!
