A new addition to the range is this intermediate instrument, the link between Mandolin and Octave Mandolin, with a proportionate body size.
This instrument is built using a different form of bracing for the soundboard, "lattice bracing" to give a more "mandolin-like" tone. With an 18" scale it can be tuned to DAEB, giving the same intervals as a mandolin. It can also be capoed at the 5th fret to make it correspond to the mandolin's GDAE with a similar scale length, so you really have two instruments in one.
Length 77.5cm Width 32cm Scale 46cm/18"
Tunings CGDA, DAEA, DAEB or similar
Presently I am unable to source a suitable hard-shell case, this instrument is supplied with a padded gig-bag.
