  • Pava A4 Player oval hole.

    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!
