Dennis has a brand-new really old mandolin.

Dennis says: “It’s a National Triolian resonator mandolin. Its serial number is 466, so it was probably built in 1929 or 1930, I’m guessing.”

What do you like about it, Dennis?

  • “It rings like a bell.”
  • “It has the same tonal color as my 1932 National Triolian guitar.”
  • “It can kill a banjo with its bare hands.”

Bonus video: You’ve been warned. Hear it (and see it) for yourself.
