Mandolins

        

The mandolin is a short-necked lute with four pairs of steel strings tuned like a violin. The first instruments of this type can be seen in pictures from the 15th century, although the name 'Mandolin' was not used until the 17th century. Today, the mandolin is popular in bluegrass and traditional folk music. As a soloist instrument, the mandolin is usually played 'pontiado' being the soprano's voice in a larger group of instruments.  Shop our selection of mandolins at our store or online.
