Breedlove Cascade Mandolin Natural 2008

Breedlove Cascade Mandolin Natural 2008

This Breedlove Cascade is likely named for the Cascade Mountains, a range that passes through Northern California, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. It is perhaps a modified “A style” design, where the lower part of the body is teardrop shaped and the upper part has truncated horns, somewhat suggesting an “F style”. The body is built with Sitka Spruce for the carved, F-hole top, and flamed Maple for the sides, neck and carved back.

National RM1-E Walnut Body Resophonic Mandolin

National RM1-E Walnut Body Resophonic Mandolin

The National RM1-E A-style mandolin hearkens back to the early days of Resophonic instruments, when the concept was being applied wherever more volume was needed.Here we have the Maple-Walnut version, which isn’t just a great ice cream flavour. Walnut was used as an instrument wood for centuries, and brings a slight mellowness to the tone.

Gibson A Jr Model Junior A-Style Mandolin Sheraton Brown, 1924

Here we’re looking at a Gibson A Junior model mandolin in Sheraton brown – basically the only colour available for this model. It’s built like other A-Style mandolins, the key differences being wood quality and low decoration level. The arched, carved top features an oval soundhole and is Adirondack Spruce, while the arched, carved back is Maple, as are the sides and neck.

Eastman MD815-V F-Style F-Hole Mandolin Antique Varnish

Eastman MD815-V F-Style F-Hole Mandolin Antique Varnish

The Eastman MD815-V F-Style F-Hole Mandolin is one of the most recognisable mandolin designs, based on the groundbreaking work of Orville Gibson in the late part of the 19th century, blending traditional mandolin and violin construction principles.  The F-Style mandolin has become one of the benchmark instruments for country, bluegrass, celtic, and traditional music forms.  And, if you take a listen to Chris Thile, they can do Bach to the full potential of the player.  Closely related to the Eastman MD814-V model, the F soundhole and its enhanced treble attack tilts the Eastman MD815-V towards Bluegrass and Country repertoires, compared to the F-holes on the MD815/V.
