Obtain Classic Folk Tone With A Vintage Look - The Eastman MD505CC/N Contour Comfort A-Style Mandolin In Vintage Nitro Finish
Eastman handcrafted mandolins pay tribute to traditional build methods and body styles and deliver a balanced, refined tone. Known for having more treble attack and percussive â€œchopâ€ than oval hole instruments, F-hole mandolins are the first choice in ensemble settings where volume competition can be an issue. Simplicity of design without sacrificing quality and tone. A-style or teardrop mandolins offer the benefit of a fine mandolin without the extra cost of the F-style. Its tonal brightness makes it a popular choice in the classical, folk, and Celtic genres.
