Eastman MD505-CS Spruce/Maple A-Style Mandolin 6266


No-nonsense A style with tight and focused tone!

What we think:

This mando might not look like much, but if you're looking for loud, bright and balanced tone, then you've come to right place. This is a very articulate mandolin, tremolo notes come out brillant and focused. It would be the perfect mandolin for the grasser who wants a workhorse and something to take to festivals that could burn at a session but wouldn't induce a cold sweat if conditions got too rough. Classic finish is classy and understated, too, my favorite aesthetic!
