Phoenix (new) Neoclassical Mandolin

Tag No 32-4199 New

#621, Made primarily for classical playing with a sound as sweet as a varietal honey produced from the flowers of the tupelo tree found in the Southeastern United States & with hard shell case.

Designed with the classical player in mind, this extremely high quality, superb sounding two-point model comes from the builder with Thomastik strings. Rolfe Gerhart, the builder, says: The Neoclassical is the only American mandolin specifically designed for full sound with extra-light strings (up to Dr. Thomastik mediums) for mandolin orchestras, and also for easy playing of folk, jazz, Celtic, and modern classical music. Professionals are startled by its loudness and light weight, saying, "I can’t believe the volume with extra-light strings!" "So much easier (to play) I couldn't believe it," "I can comfortably reach the high double-stops," "rich and dark tone, a lyrical sound," "strong G strings," "you can hear the wood," and "amazing sustain." Listen to Steve Trott play his Neoclassical on the recent CD "The Waters of Life" by the original Highwaymen. And for an excellent mandolin instruction booklet with a CD, check out Jim Dalton's Mandolin for Beginners where Jim plays and shows his Neoclassical (in spite of someone else's mandolin being shown on the booklet cover).
