The Model M
The purest expression of craft is typically unadorned.
Shorn of pretense, simply appointed, our Model M mandolin is new for us. But it was years in the making. And, while it may be our entry level mandolin, it’s hardly a typical one.
How so? Well, this is the mandolin we had in our heads when we first started shaping wood into remarkable instruments. One that does away with fancy scroll work and relies purely on rich, warm sound to make an impression. A mandolin that reflects both our obsessive nature with the finest instruments of the past — yes, we’ve spent some hundreds of hours looking at CT scans of the world’s great violins, studying wood densities, making 3D scans, and recording instruments just to see if we can dial in specific frequencies when we carve and voice the instruments — and our slightly crazy ways.
