This item is an absolute MUST for me. Since I got my first one years and years ago, I haven't owned a mandolin since that didn't have a Tone-Gard.
Keeps the back of the mandolin away from your body, resulting in a very noticeable boost in tone and volume. So much of the sound of the mandolin comes from the back! This contraption is especially helpful when standing or using a strap. It easily installs by slipping over the back of the mandolin and is slightly adjustable. Rubber and leather pads are in place to protect the instruments finish. Also fits inside most cases, so removal isn't necessary. Not recommended for instruments with varnish finish, unless you’re like me and don’t worry too much about those kinds of things.
This one is slightly oversized for mandolins with larger dimensions than usual.
