So now that you’re in the market for a mandolin, how do you decide which one is right for your musical tastes? The f-style mandolin is a hollow-bodied instrument that never fails to produce a clear, pronounced sound. This style of mandolin exhibits scrolling F-shaped sound holes on each side of the strings of the instrument, much like its cousins the violin and viola. The f-holes give a clear, crisp tone due to the concentration of energy in vast overtones from the F-hole mandolin’s arched top.
The body of the mandolin is typically made of maple. A hard wood construction adds brilliance to the sound of the music, giving it a deep, resonating tone. Soft woods, such as mahogany or poplar, generally produce a more mellow sound that works well in music genres where a lighter, warmer tone is desired.
Whether you’re just starting out your musical journey or having been playing seriously for years, the beautifully-designed f-style mandolin will never cease to provide you with the perfect pitch time and time again.
