    Re: Price increases coming soon or already here

    I wouldnít hedge a bet on that happening. With the minuscule output of mandolins being produced the last two years it would take at least five years for supply to eclipse demand creating a glut. ...

    Re: Price increases coming soon or already here

    Guitars are actually more readily available than mandolins or banjos. But yes, lots more people are interested in learning to play. The projection for scarce inventory is through 2023.

    Price increases are going to be across the board, and I doubt there are other domestic companies who are going to be able to increase production anytime soon. Expect to pay more and wait longer. ...

    When you talk banjos things get murky over switched necks, tone rings, etc. And there are like five people (most of them dealers) who are considered “players” in that game. You really have to know...
