  • AVAILABLE - Pava A5 Player - Sunburst Gloss

    Pava's mandolins sell as quickly as I can get them and there is a very good reason, they are incredible, immaculate fit and finish, the best tonewoods available and fantastic tone.

    This absolutely gorgeous Player A5 has great volume with an immense chop and great depth and warmth. It plays beautifully and responds equally well to the gentlest touch or going for it with a heavy pick. Pick your style from bluegrass to classical, this is a mandolin for everyone.

  • AVAILABLE - Northfield F5s

    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.

  • BASIC?!


    1. Used to describe someone devoid of defining characteristics that might make a person interesting, extraordinary, or just simply worth devoting time or attention to.

    2. Lacking intelligence and unable to socialize on even an elementary level.

    3. Annoyingly frustrating because of the above

    How different the Capek A4 Basic is! This is a smart and characterful mandolin; we'd go so far as to say 'sophisticated'.


  • MINI ?!

    mini - adjective
    1. denoting a miniature version of something.
    "a mini skirt"
    There's nothing small about this classy Cocobolo creation. Looks great, plays even better and sounds 'big' not mini.
    I loved photographing this guitar too.

    Wow! This is what Collings are about, lots of full and fat tone with fantastic pop and chop and depth, breadth and subtlety and complexity, and, and, and...
