    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."

    No more Webers until 2023, and then no-one knows what the prices will be...

    A beautiful F5 style octave mandolin with hand graduated spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides. It as a 20" scale length and 1 3/8" nut with a traditional Brekke bridge giving excellent playability. The top is bound, the fretboard is radiussed and bound ebony and it has a solid/cast stainless steel tailpiece, dual action truss rod, Grover tuners, Celtic knot and 'Weber' headstock design and a custom hard case.

    It is tone bar braced so there is none of that floppiness common to flat top octave mandolins. It has great power and definition with plenty of character and depth of tone and excellent projection. With a 20" scale it is very easy to play.

    Weber Fern F5 - F Style - F Hole - Varnish Finish

    £7,695.00

    Weber are no longer using the varnish finish. This beauty is made by the master himself Bruce Weber and signed on the label. It is also worth noting that Weber will not be making any mandolins until at least 2023!

    Weber's top of the range F5, Adirondack/red spruce top, spirit varnish finish, beautiful fern headstock inlay, spectacular flamed maple back and sides, radiussed fretboard, tone bar braced and a Weber hard case.

    It has lovely dark bass and warm middles with clear trebles, a very full and rich tone with great playability and fantastic response from the lightest touch to a heavy pick. Plenty of cut and chop for bluegrass players and others wanting to be heard with depth and complexity making it great for anything from folk to classical. A superb all-round mandolin.

  4. Flinthills/Franzke F5 Special (used)

    Flinthills/Franzke F5 Special (used)

    Out of stock
    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.

    Northfield's F5S has been getting a fantastic reception stateside and with very good reason.


    They are bluegrass monsters with a strong and powerful chop and much, much more, strong well defined bass notes, rich and complex mids and clear trebles. The balance and projection is remarkable as is the depth of tone. Great for the aforementioned bluegrass and almost any other style.

    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.

    When I started TAMCO back in 2001, I never thought I would be able to offer a bluegrass mandolin (by this I mean carved top and back not F5) of this quality for such a price. All solid woods, hand carved top and back and solid cast tailpiece. It has lots of bass and sustain, with rich mids and clear trebles. With hardshell case. Classic finish.

  16. Weber Gallatin F4 Mandolin - F Style - Oval Hole - Natural

    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.

    With custom hardshell case.

    Signed by Bruce Weber and no more Webers until 2023!
