A new mandolin family instrument has been added to The Music Emporium inventory:

Northfield Flattop Octave Mandolin (USED)

View instrument...

This powerful Northfield flattop octave mandolin will cover all the guitar-ranged desires any mandolinist could dream up, and the lightning fast response coupled with a whip crack attack make it perfect for Irish or old-time backing. The slightly longer 22" scale length lends itself to more guitar like fingering and provides the string tension required for more dynamic styles. Appointments like single ply brown tortoise binding and understated rosette make this one feel like it could be at home in any circle without being flashy or over the top. If you have been wanting to explore frequencies afar or new tonal vistas, this is the perfect companion to dive in. Though pre-owned, this model remains in excellent condition. Priced with hardshell case.
