Peter Coombe Mandolins and Guitars
A style oval hole mandola
The mandola is a larger instrument than the mandolin and is
tuned 1/5th below (like a viola). The scale length is 16
inches or optionally 15.8 inches. The longer scale
length improves the sound of the C string. It is
available as a Standard model (Spruce top) or a Goldfinch
model (King Billy Pine top). Beautiful sweet, warm and
rich tonal quality.
Note: The mandola comes with a custom made Cedar Creek case included in the price. These are high quality cases with perfect fit as per my specifications. These cases have become very expensive, and the deposit has been increased to help cover this cost, but there is really no alternative to a custom made case for mandolas. If you want to save on the cost of the case, contact me and I can give a quote for a mandola with no case.
I also offer a flattop mandola at a much reduced price. Contact me for details on this. The custom case for this mandola costs almost as much as the instrument, so the cost of the case is an issue. If you can make or find a case for it I can supply it without the case.
