Our Main Options

 We’d like to use this page to focus on mandocellos, but most of the information will be relevant to our guitars and mandolas as well. 

Since the mandocello is a new concept to many, the first videos will compare and contrast the guitar and mandocello.

Unison or Octave Strung


We offer unison and octave strung versions of our mandocellos. The conversion between the two is a simple job for a luthier or good tech if the player wants to switch. 

The video below will highlight the differences.

At the request of customers, we will use whatever tone wood they choose. However, the primary woods we use are Black Walnut, Black Locust, Osage Orange, and Cherry. We harvest these woods locally, and take pride in the fact that they are easily replenished. The following videos will demonstrate the differences in each wood’s character and tone. We recommend headphones or quality speakers for a more accurate representation of sound. 


Walnut produces a rich, warm, robust tone, much like mahogany.

Locust gives a bright tone on the high end, yet still depth and a low end boom, much like a combination of rosewood and mahogany.

Cherry has a warm tone that compares with maple. Moderately bright, and reflective highs.

Osage tends to respond much like rosewood, bright, punchy, and vibrant. The lows are resonant and rich.

Standard Model Compared To SP and Double Top Models


The SP (sideport) models and double tops have been gaining popularity quickly. The more traditional model seems to remain beloved by the purists.

Mandola Or Mandocello? 

The mandola is tuned to fifths at the viola range, the fifth string extension is a low F.

The mandocello is tuned to the register of a cello. The fifth course, however, is a high extension that tunes to an E.
