Whether you're an experienced folk musician on the festival circuit or a budding hobbyist who simply enjoys jamming with friends, Michael Kelly mandolins are ideal for anyone who's looking for an instrument that perfectly reflects their own impressive skills and discerning tastes. From their custom-style appearance to their irresistible twangy tone, the mandolins in this section are everything you'd expect from a company that has been respected on the folk and traditional music scene since 1999.
Michael Kelly's team of luthiers are just as passionate about playing the mandolin as you are, which is why they put so much time and effort into the construction of their instruments. In fact, a perfect example of Michael Kelly's stunning craftsmanship can be found in the A O Mandolin. Loaded with features like a radiused fingerboard, solid carved spruce top, and abalone block inlays, this mandolin also has the rare oval-shaped soundhole, giving you a very distinctive sound that demands to be heard. Easy to play and very affordable, the A O Mandolin is ideal for Celtic jigs and Irish pub shows alike.
Or maybe you're a member of a Celtic rock group who likes to mix a little modern crunch into their traditional style... if so, then check out the Legacy Dragonfly Acoustic-Electric Mandolin. Packed with Fishman System One electronics, and a stunning design that boasts a solid flame maple back and sides, the Dragonfly is one Michael Kelly's most popular models for obvious reasons. Not to mention, the radiused fingerboard means this mandolin is very comfortable to play, and the proprietary one-piece tailpiece gives it a ring and resonance that allows it to be heard very clearly.
Learning how to play the mandolin is such a challenging and rewarding feat to undertake, it only makes sense to hone your skill on an instrument that was built with your aspirations in mind. Of course, it's for this reason why Michal Kelly's mandolins are so renowned by folk and traditional musicians around the world, and any one of their models will be sure to please you.
