Spruce and maple... if you're after sparkling clarity and brilliant dynamics, you won't find a more divine combination of tonewoods. The use of solid spruce for the top results in a tone that is crisp and wonderfully balanced, lending itself to a range of playing styles. You can be sure that every single note will ring out beautifully and hang in the air with shimmering sustain. Maple back and sides will then ensure you're not hindered by any muddy sound. Only a bright, clear, and focused tone will flow from the strings.
It's not just the spectacular tonewoods that provide amazing dynamics, but also the shape of the mandolin. Fill the room with glorious sound, the A-style design and oval soundhole both contribute to incredible sound projection. This makes it a magnificently versatile instrument that can be pushed with immense volume whilst still retaining dazzling clarity.
If you're going to deliver such a scrumptious, crystal-clear sound, you'll want long-lasting quality behind you. From the body to the headstock, excellent craftsmanship runs through the veins of this mandolin, granting it sturdiness and durability. Arched back and sides, gold diecast tuners, and a rosewood fretboard all ensure you have immaculate tone and silky-smooth playability. And the quarter sawn Sitka spruce bracing gives the instrument incredible stability from the inside, so you can look forward to a lifetime of divine playing and mesmerising sound.
