Introducing the Recording King RAM-3-TS Dirty 30’s A-Style Mandolin, an elegantly crafted instrument that evokes the classic style and sound of mandolins from the 1930s. This gorgeous mandolin features a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides for a beautifully balanced, warm and projecting tone. The vintage-inspired appointments like the RK Jubilee headstock, wooden/white bound body, and multi-ply pickguard pay homage to mandolins of the past while the satin finish and premium build quality make this a modern instrument built to last.

As soon as you pick up the RAM-3-TS, you’ll be impressed by its comfortable feel thanks to its slim maple neck and radiused ebony fingerboard. The smooth neck profile and low action allows fast riffs and intricate solos to sing with ease. Whether you’re into old-time, folk, country, bluegrass or Irish traditions, this F-style mandolin is equally at home. It projects beautifully for jam sessions but has a refined, nuanced voicing for more intimate musical moments.

Sonically, the RAM-3-TS does not disappoint. The solid Engelmann spruce top responds quickly and sings with sweet, balances tones across the tonal spectrum. Hand-carved from quality tone woods and graduated in thickness, the mahogany back and sides have excellent resonance and articulation. As you play, you’ll notice strong midrange punch and a bass end that holds its own even when chopping hard. The sustain is excellent. Notes bloom and then taper off naturally. From delicate tremolo to bold melodies, this mandolin always delivers.

Recording King is known for paying close attention to construction and build quality, and it shows throughout this mandolin. Some of the finer details include a dovetail neck joint, hand-fitted ebony bridge, and real bone nut and saddle. The frets are perfectly leveled for silky smooth playability. Inside the instrument, carefully scalloped tone bars help the top vibrate freely. Little touches like the cream binding and rosette show the care put into this mandolin.

The Recording King RAM-3-TS Dirty 30’s A-Style Mandolin looks, sounds and feels like an antique instrument but with upgraded hardware and electronics. It comes equipped with a professional setup right out of the box.
