Finding a wonderful mandolin instrument is easy… and it doesn’t have to be expensive. If you’ve been playing mandolin for a while, you may want to pick up a nicer new or used one for optimal playability and sound. But, if you’re looking for your first mandolin, you may be excited to know you can pick up a beautiful brand new instrument for under $50. That’s a crazy good deal – Amazon.com has that one available for 33% of the normal price so you’re saving about $100 on that mandolin.
I was actually surprised to see how many mandolins Amazon carries. I still think of them as an online bookstore, but they are really so much more than that these days.
The nice thing about buying stuff on Amazon is that they have a TON of reviews from people who have bought and used the item, so you can really see what people think of the various instruments, and not just what the manufacturer says about them.
Another great place to look for Mandolins is eBay. eBay is sort of like the online classifieds. They often have auctions to see if they can sellers can get the highest and best price for their unique items, but most sellers there also have a “buy it now” price that you can pay if you “know” you want to get that item and don’t want to horse around with the auction bidding.
You can find both new and used merchandise at eBay and they have a lot of different mandolin instruments for sale there.

I would definitely recommend checking out both Amazon and eBay for the best prices and selection on new and used mandolins.
