Collings MT A-Style Mandolin Gloss Top Sunburst, 2006

Collings MT A-Style Mandolin Gloss Top Sunburst, 2006

The Collings MT A-Style mandolin is the entry point for Collings mandolins, and its lack of decoration doesn’t hide the quality of the instrument or the care with which it was built. This 2006 model sports a satin finish with the ‘Gloss Top’ option, and an ebony arm-rest. The A-Style mandolin appeared in the closing days of the 19th century as part of Orville Gibson’s revolutionary introduction of violin making principles to mandolin construction.

Eastman MD605 A Style Mandolin, Classic Finish

Eastman MD605 A Style Mandolin, Classic Finish

The Eastman MD605 represents great value in a quality A-Style mandolin, built with solid woods and wrapped in a gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Introduced in 1905 and based on Orville Gibson’s patent merging violin family techniques with guitar and mandolin construction, the A-Style mandolin has a distinctive teardrop shape and a carved top and back, with either F holes or an oval hole; the F hole provides somewhat more top end. Compared to the F style often seen in bluegrass bands, the A Style body shape has more pronounced midrange and fundamental, and a less percussive attack.

Eastman El Rey Mandolin ER-M Classic Finish

Eastman El Rey Mandolin  ER-M Classic Finish

Eastman El Rey ER-M  Mandolin is very cool instrument that shares DNA with the Eastman archtop El Rey models, creating a contemporary looking electric mandolin. The Eastman El Rey ER-M features a solid one piece mahogany sides and back with a solid maple top. The mahogany provides enhanced mid range warmth and the maple top has a focused note fundamental with clear top end snap. The two f holes provide a bit of traditional mandolin looks but the single cutaway and lower bout design really give it that jazz box feel.

Eastman MDC805 Mandocello Classic Finish

Eastman MDC805 Mandocello Classic Finish

The Eastman MDC805 Mandocello is a wonderful, rich sounding instrument that works well as a solo, ensemble or accompaniment instrument in a wide range of styles and genres, from Celtic to Classical, Latin and back again. The Mandocello had been in existence for some centuries in Europe, beginning with flat back and then bowl back. However, in 1905 Orville Gibson’s company began producing mandolin family instruments, including Mandocello models that drew from his blending of violin and guitar concepts.

Eastman MD515 F-style Mandolin

Eastman MD515 F-style Mandolin

The MD515 was the mandolin that re-shaped the entire mandolin market in my opinion. a couple of years ago it was unthinkable that an all solid wood, true hand carved & graduated f-style mandolin could be offered in the under $1600.00 price point.

Eastman MDC805 Mandocello

Eastman MDC805 Mandocello

After the success of Eastman’s line of handcarved, solid mandolins it was only a matter of time before the master luthiers brought their skills to bear on other members of the mandolin family. The Eastman mandocello utilizes all the best features of a great Eastman archtop guitar. By accenting the lower fundamentals with ringing archtop overtones they have produced an instrument that matches and perhaps surpasses any mandocello in the market today!
