Back to "Trad" Series



Back to basics, we present our standard Trad model Octave Mandolin.

Produced with the same quality woods and Sitka Spruce top as we use in our Royale models, our standard grade Trad has the great sound you’ve been looking for at a very reasonable cost.

Using standard tuners, a non adjustable truss rod and without our floating scratch-plate we are able to offer this great sounding model at an astoundingly affordable price.

Tuned GDAE, the19-5/8″ scale makes for easy melody playing and can be dropped to open (GDAD) for a great Irish Bouzouki.
