Crossword Genius

Instruments musician initially on island played (9)


I believe the answer is:

'instruments' is the definition.
(mandolin is a kind of instrument)

'musician initially on island played' is the wordplay.
'initially' says to take the initial letters.
'played' indicates an anagram.
The initial letter of 'musician' is 'm'.
'onisland' anagrammed gives 'andolins'.

(Another definition for mandolins that I've seen is "instruments".)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
