    I like Collings cream top finish so much that I have ordered it for my custom mandola (and being greedy on a Girouard mandola as well). To use one of my favourite Clichés it sounds as good as it looks. Fantastic in all departments, rich, full and well defined in the bass department, sweet and warm in the mids and clear and rich trebles. A mandolin for all occasions and all styles.

    Out of stock
    This is an early Gibson A style mandolin with "pumpkin" top and Orville Gibson's picture on the label. The mandolin has the first version of the elevated pickguard but it is missing the clamp. The tailpiece cover is the earliest version that is a bit more ornate. The original bridge height is a full 3/4". The finish is great and the top is fully arched with no sinking. This a great playing antique instrument. Classic vintage Gibbo tone, lots of that wonderful deep and resonant bass, warm and sweet mids and clear trebles.

  13. Northfield Octave Mandolin - Mahogany

    Northfield Octave Mandolin - Mahogany

    Out of 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.

    The last one! The Gallatin range is no longer available in the natural finish.

    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 satin varnish it looks great.

    It has a solid hand carved spruce top, solid hand carved maple back and sides, solid cast tailpiece and Brekke traditional bridge. The basic spec of course does not affect the sound. It plays beautifully with a very warm and full tone with deep and well defined bass notes, rich mids and clear trebles.

    Steve is so busy he isn't having time to supply many dealer orders. I am not expecting another from him this year so grab this outstanding mandolin while you can.

    Another absolutely stunning mandolin from Steve. It has everything you could want in the tone (and looks) department, its very full and rich with great warmth and complexity, fantastic definition and note separation and a chop for the bluegrassers up with the very best. It responds beautifully to the lightest touch and the heaviest pick.

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.

    Used F5 special made by Mark Franzke before he changed the name to Franzke mandolins. Gorgeous Autumn brown gloss sunburst, single bound top and back, solid cast Allen tailpiece, tight tiger striped flamed maple back and sides and mother of pearl logo and headstok inlay. Its loud with powerful mids giving a great 'woof' of air from a chop chord, solid and woody bases and clear, well defined sharp trebles. 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 A5 Satin - Sunburst

    Out of stock
    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.

    Please note the photos are not of the one in stock. New photos to come.

    Great for blues and generally getting that wonderful resonator tone, National ResoPhonic mandolins are also fantastic for their unbelievable volume. I can still remember the first time I tuned one up and did my usual quick and hard three chord run to check tuning, my ears hurt. If you want to be heard in the pub in that noisy jam there is nothing better.

    The tone is nothing like those cheap n' nasty resonators you hear around and about, it is the true mandolin sound with the resonator feel.

    Northfield Big Mon F5 - Engelmann Spruce Top

    Out of stock
    Big Mon with Engelmann Spruce top, violin varnish neck, engraved Bill James tailpiece.

    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 an amazing chop and 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 it is fantastic for all types of playing.

    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."
