Our handcrafted mandolins pay tribute to traditional build methods and body styles while delivering a balanced and refined tone.
Setting the Standard A bluegrass icon, and for good reason. F-style or Florentine mandolins are the epitome of fine craftsmanship and beauty. The ornate carved scroll adds mass to the instrument that helps create balance for a standing player.
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.
Real Instruments Built by Real People All of our guitars and mandolins are built in our workshops in Beijing by an expert team of luthiers and craftspeople.
