Here's a Grant mandolin and mandola duet. CLICK to listen to a 470 kilobyte mp3 file - "Greek Dance" - with Rob Grant on mandola, Maria Pesavento on mandolin.
What clients say:"Today, after quite a break from playing I decided to grab a mando and pick a few Scottish and Irish tunes. Just because it was close, I picked the Martinez and I have to say I had fun. Then I decided later to grab the Rob Grant 1996 Mando and I have to say I was blown away. The tone was sweeter, the playing easier and it was just way more fun. I will never be anything more than a very basic player but I am so glad I have a quality instrument to noodle away on. I remember the day I bought it, and the concern I had if it would it handle a dry SA climate. It has come through like a champion. Please pass my thanks onto Rob."
