My 10-string mandolins have a slightly longer scale
than the 8 string models and are typically tuned CGDAE
or DGDAE (low to high), effectively combining the range
of both standard Mandolin and Tenor Mandola in one instrument.
This model has a larger body , 315 mm (12.4") wide
and a warm, resonant bass response while the carved-top
provides plenty of projection.
The top is hand carved , graduated
Available in gloss or satin finish with
natural, black or brown top colour.
