Comments about Fender FM-100 Mandolin Pack:
I play acoustic guitar and have always enjoyed, and wanted to learn, mandolin too. I think this package is an excellent value for a starter mandolin; fun to play, comfortable to hold, easy to learn on, and reasonably durable.
Among the other positives are the extras that come with this package - soft gig bag, nice tuner, pre-strung (I bought in a retail Sam Ash store), mandolin pick, strap (only okay but I really don't use it), and superb instructional book.
Negatives - buzzing on G and sometimes D strings (although one benefit from the buzzing that I as a novice mandolin player get is having to finger correctly, which usually solves the problem).
Another negative - only one mandolin pick is included. I think the included pick is perfect, but comparable replacement mandolin picks do not seem to be sold at any of the Sam Ash stores that I've gone to (and I've tried several).
Final negative - this is a low end mandolin, so this model does not have the rich mandolin sound that more expensive models will have. So if you are serious about the mandolin, you may be happier over time with a higher-end model.
Overall - I think this mandolin package is an excellent value for the money and ideal for a novice mandolin player; I would recommend to anyone who wants to learn the instrument without breaking the bank. I've enjoyed it so much that I will be investing in a better model, but my young kids also enjoy playing this one so I'm happy to keep it for them or for when we go on trips.
