Acoustic Mandolins

The acoustic mandolin produces an iconic sound that makes it hard to miss in any song. Because of this, it has gained popularity across multiple music genres and can be a great addition to your practice. If you are familiar with stringed instruments or simply want a good starting point, the mandolin is a great option due to its easy-to-understand tuning and smaller construction. Mandolins have been around for centuries, getting their start across European culture from the highest royal court to the smallest town pub. These instruments were easy to create and master so their existence was very widespread. Today, bluegrass, folk and Celtic musicians use the mandolin heavily but some artists like Bruce Hornsby and John Hiatt have incorporated the mandolin into their arrangements with brilliant ease.

When you’re looking for a mandolin, you’ll want to consider the style type. A and F models are the most common options and differ in shape, size and sometimes quality but are relatively similar in sound. A-styles like the Mitchell MM150VS and Epiphone MM-30S have a teardrop shape and are noted for their carved and curved construction, superior warm tone and excellent projection. For these reasons, and their affordability, A-models are popular with beginner and intermediate mandolin musicians.

F models are shaped with a scroll and point body and a flat back and are often considered the next level up in the world of mandolins. These models are often created using solid wood instead of the more malleable plywood used for the curved construction of some A-models. Options like the Michael Kelly Legacy Elegant Amberburst and the Loar LM-600 offer quality handcrafted construction, fine hardware that limits any rattling and solid metal tuning keys that are effortlessly precise.

If you want to bring an original and unique tone to your sound, incorporating a mandolin is a great way to do that. The high ring of this instrument can pair with everything from guitars to violins, making them extremely diverse and appealing.
