The Music Trade Review was published out of New York from 1878 until at least 1956. It apparently suspended publication with the January 1933 issue. Publication was resumed under different management sometime between 1937 and 1940. Our online library contains issues from 1880 to 1933, and from 1940 to 1954. Additional years are available for review at a number of libraries. Search for more information about the holdings of other libraries, or ask your local librarian for assistance.

The cut herewith gives an excellent idea of the relative sizes of the mandolin, mandola and mandocello made by the Waldo Mfg. Co., of Saginaw, Mich. The mandola is a relative instrument to the viola, and is tuned one-fifth lower than the mandolin, while the mandocello is tuned an octave lower than the mandola. This gives the musical world a mandolin quartette the same as first and second violin, viola and 'cello.

The Waldo Mfg. Co. have received hearty congratulations from musical artists on the production of these instruments which make possible such a very beautiful combination as the mandolin quartette. It enables some of the most delightful music written for quartettes to be played on these instruments. They are sold at very reasonable prices considering their superior manufacture and musical qualities and are worthy the investigation of dealers.


Cheap Grades Hurt Trade


Cheap Mandolins Flood the Market—The Poorest Kind of Trash, but They Injure the Sales of Good Instruments—Complaints General.

Cheap mandolins are the bane of the business ; and this complaint is shared in common by the manufacturer and dealer, if credence may be placed in current talk. Even the jobber, who is often regarded as soulless when it comes to prices, is not enamored over the situation when these very low price instruments are mentioned. American manufacturers are conceded to lead the world in the production of mandolins, whether grade, finish or tonal qualities are considered. A few are imported, but only for the sake of some name which the purchaser may believe stands for superiority, when, as a matter of fact, the reverse is the case.



A greatly enlarged catalogue of his mandolins, mandolas and guitars is now being compiled by Angelo Manello, manufacturer, 676-680 Eagle avenue, New York. This new line will be illustrated and described in detail. A handsome and specially designed calendar is also under way, and both will be ready for distribution early in December.

The New York Mandolin and Guitar Correspondence School to transact business in Des Moines was incorporated with the Secretary of State of Iowa this week. Capital stock is $50,000. Incorporators: J. W. Meyers, H. T. Meyers and Samuel Siegel.




[Special to The Review.]

Boston, Mass., Oct. 27, 1903.

The Review found the Vega Co. very busy, as usual, to-day. They are paying marked attention to specialties of their manufacture, such as new styles of the "Vega" mandolins and guitars and the "Standard" cornet and trombone.

They are now pushing all these specialties as vigorously as possible, and many of the leading professionals are using them to advantage and consequently speak well of them.




The "twentieth century" mandolins manufactured by Angelo Mannello, 676-680 Eagle avenue, New York, are claimed to be instruments of the highest merit. Every one is minutely and critically tested, and prospective buyers are given every possible advantage and facility to judge for themselves of the actual worth of Mr. Mannello's very complete line of mandolins, mandolas and guitars, which hold the highest awards given in several international expositions. His factory is running its full capacity to fill orders.



The Waldo Manufacturing Co., Saginaw, Mich., are experiencing a splendid demand for the fine line of mandolins which they are now placing on the market. They are certainly handsome instruments, of unusually fine workmanship and possess a tone quality that has won the admiration of distinguished masters of this instrument. The Waldo products appeal to dealers who are desirous of handling a satisfaction giving and profitable line of small and musical instruments.
