Northfield Mandolins at The Mando Shop

Northfield "S" Series mandolins aim to be an elegantly understated version of their master model instruments, serving up their signature tone, projection and construction in an abbreviated form.  Each mandolin is made of select tone woods.  The lacquer finish on these instruments is made to be stronger than the more delicate spirit varnish, yet still be very thin as to not inhibit vibration and dampen the liveliness of the instrument.

Since 2009 The Northfield "Big Mon" F style has been popular among professionals and enthusiasts alike.  Enlarged slightly from our standard F5 style and tuned for a very responsive and rich sound, this design has been featured on many albums by premier players and toured with substantially the world over.  Inspired by the innovators and pioneers of acoustic music in the United States, the "Big Mon" design is a tribute to those intent on pushing boundaries while maintaining traditions.
