Crafter M70E Mandolin and
Blue Moon Appalachian Dulcimer


A few years ago, I was keen to replace my rather tatty and damaged mandolin I came across this Crafter in a Cambridge music shop and was really impressed with the quality and sound. I was even more impressed when I saw what the price was.

It has a plastic back and is slightly bigger than most mandolins. The sound is great and it seems to cut through when playing in sessions.


I used to play the dulcimer in folk clubs and in the very early days of Shave the Monkey. However, a hot sunny day and direct sunlight son put a stop to that. It was only recently while shopping with my daughter for an acoustic bass guitar I came across this dulcimer and after a bit of impulse buying, I became the owner of this dulcimer.
