Eastman MDC804-SB Oval-Hole Mandocello Sunburst Finish
Filling the baritone spot in the mandolin family, the mandocello is tuned in fifths like a mandolin, and adds great texture and color to any arrangement.
Oval-hole mandocellos possess throaty and vocal tonal characteristics that are wonderfully compatible with mandolin family orchestras and Celtic/folk music. These mandocellos also produce a perceived ambient reverb, due to the oval-hole opening lying directly below the courses of strings.
Our handcrafted mandocellos pay tribute to traditional build methods and body styles while delivering a balanced and refined tone.
All of our instruments are built in workshops in Beijing by an expert team of luthiers and craftsmen.
