However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Union Series

The Tanglewood TWM OS VSG really is the perfect mandolin for all players. If you've ever dreamed of playing the mandolin but were never sure where to start, this would be an outstanding instrument. Beginners can enjoy the benefits of a rich sounding and well made instrument without the worry of spending large amounts of money. Tanglewood's mandolins reflect a perfect blend between time-honoured design philosophies and modern manufacturing methodologies. Designed by some of Europe's most celebrated Luthiers, each mandolin is a manifestation of some of the finest tone woods available, produced with their factories' meticulous attention to detail.

Solid Spruce and Mahogany

The most striking feature about the Tanglewood TWM OS VSG Teardrop Mandolin is its elegant teardrop shape, that not only offers comfort, but also an authentic shape that many players instantly recognise.

Its construction also provides a powerful acoustic projection with its body depth and oval soundhole, delivering a full host of warm tones that players will love.
