2-Bar

We have reshaped our tone bars quite a bit from our standard series mandolins because of a few design changes. We've added strength to the top by creating a more pronounced arch. We have also changed our thickness map varying the graduation in several hundred points across the top. The tone bars are not really "braces" at all, more like EQ dials that we can adjust depending on the specific frequencies we want.

Our 2 Bar variation is more traditional. The sounds is even across all frequencies and the projection is focussed, making it possible to cut more directly through a mix in a live band setting. The tone is more fundamental in nature, carving out a specific sonic space and making it drier sounding than the 5 bar and with less harmonic overtones.
