    Re-voiced by Ervin over the summer of 2015, a letter from Ervin explaining his thinking is included (see photo). This is effectively a new Somogyi that would cost over £30 000 to order now.

    Its in excellent condition and has the classic Somogyi tone that Ervin is famous for. It is very rich and full, almost impossible to describe. I have used the expression before that Ervin's guitars sound like a choir of angels with a full orchestra. I still can't think of a better way to put it.

    Another guitar in my ‘small, very easy to play with a big sound’ project. It has a fourteen inch lower bout, short (24.9”) scale, armrest, 12 frets to the body and a cutaway. It just couldn’t be easier to play and the sound is classic Batson. Big and warm but with clarity and balance.. To use one of my favourite clichés a quart in a pint pot.

    Another outstanding guitar from David. It has a very full and rich tone with deep and resonant bass notes, warm and complex mids and clear, precise trebles. The balance and individual note definition and projection is truly remarkable. And you get David's amazing build book with photography that puts mine to shame. My first two from David sold very quickly, I expect this one will too.

    Gorgeous flamed maple, back sides and neck make this OO1 from Bill Collings look as stunning as it sounds.

    There has been a lot of discussion recently about the merits of maple and the widely held misconception that it gives bright tone.

    This beauty from Jimmy proves what a wild misconception it is. I just asked my tech to play it, the first thing he said is that the bass is very strong (I agree), the trebles are very clear and the mids are warm and complex. He is also very impressed by the balance from the lowest note to the highest.

    Wow! This is another beauty from Max and Lauri. It has a very strong tone with an amazing full and loud chop for the bluegrassers and much, much more. The bass notes are very full and well defined, the mids complex and full of character and the trebles clear and 'fat'. Great for just about any mandolin style.

    I'm speechless.. well almost. I've heard and seen a lot of great guitars here at TAMCO, and on my travels over the last ten years or so, and this is one of the most beautiful ever.

    I think a lot of players have an ideal sound in their heads for different styles of guitar. This matches my idea of how a Jumbo should sound....perfectly.

    It is big and loud with fantastic balance and focus, the depth and richness of tone is stunning. Nothing washes about causing unwanted harmonics and overtones, it's just great!

    There has been a lot of discussion on the Acoustic Guitar Forum recently about the tonal properties of maple. Having been a believer for a long time that in the hands of a skilled luthier it makes a fantastic tonewood for the back and sides of guitars (as well as mandolins) I am delighted to see the consensus heading my way.

    This gorgeous Reesling parlour guitar from Peggy proves my point. It has fantastic clarity and balance with a lovely deep and resonant tone. The bass notes are full and well defined, the mids warm and complex and the trebles bright, warm and clear.

  22. Northfield Octave Mandolin in Maple

    Northfield Octave Mandolin in Maple

    £4,975.00
     
    In stock
    With a 22" scale length this is a very easy playing octave mandolin. The tone is rich and full with great projection.

    Here is what Northfield have to say about it.

    In creating our octave mandolin, we’ve pulled together a variety of specs and influences to create something with a unique voice and aesthetic. We found inspiration in vintage archtop and tenor guitars.

    The ergonomics and size of the instrument needed to be considered carefully to not only ensure incredible sound, but also be comfortable for a mandolin player—this was often overlooked when it came to guitar bodied octave mandolins. The scale length and fretting hand stretch is always a consideration with octave mandolins, but equally important for comfortable playing is how the right arm reaches around the body of the instrument. The dimensions and flat back of our octave mandolin body yield something quite different than what is found on the market today.

    As a reference we looked at C2 and C4 Martin guitars from the 1930s—these instruments were archtop guitars based on the body frame of a flat top guitar. We were able to get our hands on two original tops which had been removed from these Martin models by our good friend Joe Konkoly, head of the world renowned Elderly Instruments repair shop. Joe is a master luthier specializing in large jobs like converting the 30’s era Martin archtops to flattops as desired by many modern day players. While the Martin archtops are largely overlooked amongst other vintage examples, we recognized some very unique and desirable design qualities. They had a very unusual geometry to the arching of the top as well as the graduation. This arching, particularly the high peak of the arch running down the center of the instrument, yields a vibrant high end frequency response quite suitable for the octave mandolin. Increasing the volume of the instrument while keeping the balance and the articulation across all the strings was very important to us.

    I can still remember the first conversation I had with Mike (Kemnitzer, Mr. Nugget). I nearly fell over when he said he would like to have some mandolins here at TAMCO. I have just about recovered but am feeling a little unwieldy again. It is a privilege to have a mandolin here by one of the legendary contemporary luthiers. As well as looking like it should cost twice as much the sound is superlative. The note separation and clarity is off the scale,. the depth and quality of tone is something I haven't heard before.. It has volume and subtlety, bark, bite and sweetness.

    Spruce top, quilted maple back and sides, French polished oil varnish finish, dark curly koa wood binding with maple purfling, 22 fret curved fingerboard, ebony Koa bound pick-guard, Nugget crest inlay with logo, silver plated Waverly tuners with ebony buttons, silver plated hardware, Calton case.

    Stunning blonde A5 from Mark with an Adirondack top, flamed maple back and sides, ebony fretboard and Cumberland Acoustics bridge, James tailpiece, Golden age tuners, adjustable carbon fibre truss rod and a hard case.

The Bitterroot is our best selling F5 and this gem sounds just as good for quite a lot less, lacking what the Americans call a thousand dollar strap hanger but nothing else, it has huge volume and clarity making it a bluegrass monster, but with depth and subtlety too for other styles, a great sounding and looking mandolin at a great price.

    I'm lost for words. The work of a genius.

    Michi used a titanium truss rod on this guitar, he says it is the lightest instrument he has made. It is incredibly responsive with deep, warm and clear tone and has great balance with strong and well defined bass notes, rich and complex mids and full, clear trebles and the resonance of a bigger guitar. As I've said before it takes a master to combine qualities that would be either/or in lesser instruments. Built in 2010.

    The Rigel Q95 is also known as the Gypsy Q. It was designed by Ted Eschliman of JazzMando.com. They were voiced by Pete to have the sweet sound of vintage oval-hole mandolins.

It is carved from select, highly-figured Vermont rock maple and Adirondack spruce with a maple neck with graphite reinforced truss rod, radiused ebony fingerboard, gold Grover tuners and Rigel tailpiece, abalone diamond-pattern inlays’ internal piezo pickup and hardshell case.

This beauty in spruce and flamed maple with a twenty two and three quarters inch scale length has a very strong but controlled bass with fantastic warm and vibrant mids and clear ringing trebles. Many octave mandolins suffer from muddiness, not this one, the balance and projection is amazing and it plays like a dream and sounds fantastic acoustic and plugged in. With case.

Great for bluegrass, as mentioned, but it also has a richness in tone to make it a very versatile mandolin. With TKL case.

    It has some honest play wear but is structurally sound with no issues. Hence the amazing price, this is one heck of a lot of F5 for a tad under two grand.

    Pava not only makes great mandolins but has wonderful consistency too. The first two sold in a jiffy so don't hang around if you fancy this one.

    Playing and describing so many great mandolins sometimes its hard to know what to say so my approach is to start with what strikes me first after a few minutes playing. In this case it was the sweetness of the chop. Some chop chords are dry and percussive, at the other end of the scale they can be sweet and not very good for cutting though against the villain of the piece in the jam (no name but you know which instrument I mean). Occasionally I come across one that in my view is the 'best of all possible worlds' what I think of as a musical chop, loud and with great cut but warm and not dry, this is one of the best examples of this I have come across.

    This a VERY versatile mandolin with plenty of the aforementioned chop and cut for the bluegrass player and wonderful depth and richness of tone for other styles. It takes a great luthier to combine clarity and definition and warmth and resonance, Pava has achieved that in this beautiful mandolin.

    Weber's Yellowstone in Adirondack/red spruce and beautiful flamed maple with an oval soundhole. Great looks - the honey and tortoise is one of my all time favourites - and oh that sound.

    Many oval hole mandolins (particularly flat - tops) lack definition and clarity and have hard wishy-washy bass, this beauty has fantastic balance with sweet and well defined bass notes, complex and warm mids and wonderful clear and characterful trebles.

    It comes with Weber's superb hardshell case.

    New price was £5395.

    This is one of the easiest guitars to play that I've had. Its light with a 24.75" scale, twelve frets to the body and a cutaway, unbelievably responsive and a demonstration of what a great luthier can do with Koa. In mass-produced guitars Koa is usually considered to be bright but lacking in depth and warmth. Not so in the hands of Charlie Hoffman.

    I first played a Gallatin in the States in the mid nineteen nineties and remember it still. This is an example of where every cent has gone into the sound. With no bindings and a satin finish it looks great.

    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 hand-made F5 around. The basic spec of course does not affect the sound, this is a bluegrass cannon, bark and bite a plenty, volume to challenge those b*njos but with enough complexity to make a great all-rounder. With custom hardshell case.

    The standard from Rolfe has a mere strap button to hang it over your shoulder but it makes up for the strap hanger complex with amazing responsiveness. As is the Phoenix trademark it seems to get to the note before you do. Not quite as light as the neoclassical but still lighter than most giving it amazing resonance and projection. People often ask my about playability, I usually respond that it is different for different people, for me this is it, light and open. It has a very punchy sound with well defined bass, strong mids and very precise and clean trebles. I almost forgot to mention how great it looks, Rolfe told me this one has extra specially flamey maple, the photo doesn't do it justice but take a look anyways. With hardshell case.

    In many ways twelve frets to the body and a cutaway is the perfect combination. It gives the sweetness of the more centred bridge position and allows access all the way to the top fret.

    It definately works on this beauty from Alan. The first thing that struck me about this guitar is its lightness and ease of play, it feels like a much smaller guitar. It sounds fantastic, rich and resonant with full and well defined bass notes, complex and expressive mids, clear, precise bell-like trebles and great balance and projection. What a beaut!

    This 12/15 - twelve frets to the body and a 15 inch lower bout - is another fantastic guitar from Steve. The body join at the twelfth fret gives a very full and rich tone due to the changed position of the bridge and the cutaway gives access all the way up.

    Out of stock
    A very rare opportunity to get a used big Mon in excellent condition. Save £1000 on the new price.

    The Northfield Big Mon has been creating quite a stir. It has a big fat tone with fantastic volume and projection. Created as the ideal bluegrass hoss (or cannon if you prefer) it has great depth and richness of tone to take on pretty well any style, with great responsiveness from the lightest touch to the heaviest attack with a thick pick.

    From the Northfield website. "Our "Big Mon" Mandolin is something we created in our shop. In an effort to try and create a little more mid range and bass response, with a nice airy sound, we developed this model to have a distinct voice. Here's what we did..

    The "Big Mon" body style is just slightly different than the standard size. We've increased the width of the body, at its widest point, by 5mm. We've also adjusted the depth/width of the sides a little in a few places. Everything is in proportion to this change, so it results in a slightly larger body overall. It's not very noticeable unless you compare it directly to another standard size by lining them up back to back."

I originally bought it from Lynn, he told me that he enjoys making these once in a while because he doesn’t have to work to other people’s requirements. It still has the 'Dude' sound, they don't come any better, volume and subtlety, richness and clarity, projection and intimacy, its has it all. And I think it looks amazing.
