I recently purchased one of a new line of mandolins from Clareen. Clareen is a small shop (4-6 people I think) in Galway, Ireland and is the top of the heap for newly made tenor banjos for Irish traditional music. They recently started making mandolins for the same market and I really like the one I got.
