or you could accessorize it with a multi-colored satin cape like the cat in Acid Mothers Temple.

Here's my (Romanian-made) Irish Bouzouki. Very nice and shockingly inexpensive. Haven't tried the EQ yet ...


i've been looking at Portuguese-style mandolins--the ones with the same kind of teardrop shape and flat top/back--and should have realized that the Romanians that make the hella-cheap ones would make bouzoukis too. that would be perfect to take on my road trip. hmmmmmm....can you play shoegaze on it?


I don’t see why not but its pickup is a piezo so you may be limited with distortions. Everything else should sound fine. It’s a Hora btw. And I like the deeper/bassist sound of the IB vs mandolin or octave mandolin.

i was sort of joking about the shoegaze thing, though i suppose that with the right tuning it'd work. the longer string length makes it thwaaaaaaaaaaaaang more than a mandolin.
