Eastman MDC805 Mandocello -Classic Finish-
The Eastman MDC805 Mandocello is a wonderful, rich sounding instrument that works well as a solo, ensemble or accompaniment instrument in a wide range of styles and genres, from Celtic to Classical, Latin and back again.
The Mandocello had been in existence for some centuries in Europe, beginning with flat back and then bowl back. However, in 1905 Orville Gibson’s company began producing mandolin family instruments, including Mandocello models that drew from his blending of violin and guitar concepts. This gave carved, arched tops and backs to the previous designs. These design changes almost completely displaced the traditional European designs as they offered far more volume, projection, and better tone.
