  • Northfield Big Mon F5 USED 2016.

    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."

  • Ervin Somogyi builds.

    I have two guitars under way from Ervin Somogyi. An OM and an OO both in European spruce and African blackwood.

  • Phoenix Select.

    Another superlative Phoenix mandolin. Phoenix mandolins are always very light and responsive, you can feel them resonating as you get them out of the case!


    This beauty has a very full tone with fantastic volume and complexity. It has plenty of oomph for the bluegrass players with a deep and full, loud chop and responds excellently to the heaviest pick or the lightest touch. It barks or sings sweetly, doing whatever you ask of it. A very versatile and wonderful mandolin.


    Red (Adirondack) spruce top, red maple back and sides and a Hiscox case.
