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 typically isn't necessary. Not recommended for instruments with varnish finish because it can wear it over time, but if you’re like me you probably don’t worry too much about those kinds of things.
OM-Gard for mandolin shaped octave mandolins such as Weber or Eastman MDO-305.
