My Dear Instruments, pt. 4
Part 4: Pampas Cat

This is a mandolin made at the Landola factory in Jakobstad (Pietarsaari). I've written about it before, but since then, I actually had it repaired. As already mentioned, it has room for twelve strings unlike most mandolins, which have eight strings.

And, as already mentioned, this mandolin is a prime example of crude Ostrobothnian handicraft. Notice the way it isn't round where it should be. Moreover, it's very difficult to play. But with new strings, it sounds like a dream. Like a dream of a catastrophic 40's wedding band from Nykaabi.
