    It is great news that Pava has turned her hand to oval hole mandolins. This is an incredible A4 with the depth and warmth you would expect from Tom Ellis' stable. It also has great volume with fantastic clarity and projection so you get the resonance of an A4 with the power of an A5. It responds equally well to a gentle caress and a 3mm pick with a heavy hand, deep, rich and resonant tones with some oooomph if you need it. Awesome!

    Gibson A4 Snakehead 1924 (used)

    Out of stock
    Gibson A-4 snakehead 1924, sunburst finish, two-piece back of gorgeous American maple with beautiful figure, adjustable truss-rod, adjustable bridge, Virzi Tone Producer, completely original, overall excellent condition but for one repaired hairline top crack from bridge to binding, original hard case.

    This beauty is one of the best snakes I've heard, as loud as an F5 and with the oval hole sound but pumped up with fantastic clarity and separation. The A2Z snakehead is widely regarded as best of the snakeheads for tone but the A4 snakehead has all the pop of an A2Z but with more depth and resonance.

  10. Weber Yellowstone A4 Mandocello - A Style - Oval Hole

    Weber Yellowstone A4 Mandocello - A Style - Oval Hole

    Out of stock
    Awesome! This is one of finest mandocellos I have played. The late and much lamented Stan Jay famously described the mandocello sound as being like a deep growl from the jungle. This one is coming from somewhere much deeper, the very bowels of the earth. But unlike some cellos it doesn’t lack clarity and definition, it has it all, and it looks incredible. A mandocello for the connoisseur.

    It features a hand graduated and tuned solid spruce top, flamed maple back and sides, ivoroid bound ebony with black/ivoroid side accent lines headstock veneer, ‘The Weber’ script and MoP white and gold headstock inlay, ebony fretboard and traditional Brekke bridge. It has a 24 3/4” scale length and 1 5/8”nut width, dual action adjustable truss rod, cast Weber tailpiece, Grover tuners and a deluxe hard case.

    Weber Gallatin A4 - A Style - Oval Hole

    Out of stock
    With no bindings this Gallatin A looks great. It is an example of a mandolin where every penny has gone into the sound. With a solid hand carved spruce top, solid hand carved maple back and sides, solid cast tailpiece and Brekke bridge it's the least expensive US of A made A style mandolin around. The basic spec of course does not affect the sound, it has a classic A4 tone, solid, well defined bass with warm and rich mids and crisp ringing trebles. With hard case.

    The one and only Dave Swarbrick (Swarb) of Fairport Convention had one of these.

    Photos to follow.

    This one has been around the block a few times but its all sound and plays well with low action and no issues. The back seem has an old cleated repair and there is a repaired crack.

    It has the much sought after and gorgeous Handel inlaid tuners, original pineapple tailpiece, some top flattening and an adjustable bridge. The case is also original but has seen better times (see photo).

    The sound is on the brighter side for an A4, it has some of the clarity of the snakehead sound. A great player, at this price it won't be around long.
