Mandocello

Our Standard Five-Course Mandocello

Our standard, Five-Course Mandocello is a tear drop shape with a scale length of 24.5 inches. It is Standard in regard to shape, sound hole location, tuning and string length and it varies from our SP model, our GS mode and our SC model in at least one of these elements. Every instrument we offer here is unique in most ways from the others in this section and thus Custom. Elements that can be varied are primary woods, decorative woods (binding, face and back plate for peg head, neck laminates and rosette elements), tuning hardware, and strings tuned in unison or octaves. All our models are available in bodies of our four domestic hardwoods (Cherry, Walnut, Locust, and Osage Orange). Our Mandocello gets an even response across its entire range, from the low C of a cello to the upper register of a guitar, or octave mandolin. Our instruments can be tuned either in unision or octaves.  

All our Standard Mandocellos are built with a pin bridge. We do this to produce a fuller and louder sound with more single note distinction than the floating bridge design. We do offer a floating bridge model by special order. This traditional bridge might be more attractive to players of Celtic style music.
