    I own an Edwina and tried it on mandolin, where I most of the time use a Neumann KM84.
    I really liked the sound the Edwina supplies, also on guitar and vocals - great mic.

    Here are two shoot-outs I once did with different mics on mandolin:



    Ellis A5 Special Deluxe
    Collings MF 5 (for sale)
    Gibson F 2 (1917)
    Lawrence Smart H 5 Mandola
    Gibson K 4 Mandocello
    Stefan Sobell 10-string Cittern
    Michael Sanden 8-string Bouzouki (for sale)
    Thijs van der Harst Octave Mandolin

    guitars, banjo, dobro, weissenborn, fretless bass, upright bass

    A Shure SM7B with a CloudLifter will sound fantastic on mandolin, vocals, guitar, along with several other uses. Very transparent sounding microphone. It's more well-known as a vocal/podcasting mic but sounds excellent on guitar and mando as well. Super versatile. If you shop around you can probably find an SM7B for around $350 and a CloudLifter for $150.

    Agreed.
    I'm using a FetHead in place of the CloudLifter and works beautifully at $85.
    Also an SM57 clone sounds pretty great also.
