Mandolin Our handcrafted mandolins pay tribute to traditional build methods and body styles while delivering a balanced and refined tone.
The Teardrop 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.
Oval Sound Oval-hole mandolins possess throaty and vocal tonal characteristics that are wonderfully compatible with mandolin orchestras, and Celtic/folk music. These mandolins also produce a perceived ambient reverb, due to the oval-hole opening lying directly below the courses of strings.
All of our guitars and mandolins are built in workshops in Beijing by an expert team of luthiers and craftsmen.
