Northfield NF Big Mon Mandolin, Maple & Spruce - Pre-Owned


Sold Make an enquiry


Northfield is quickly becoming the go-to for mandolin professionals and enthusiasts alike. Their flagship "Big Mon" model is a perfect testament to what the company embodies: expanding the tradition. In this case, they have literally expanded the body dimensions of the Loar F-5 design to increase the midrange and push more air. Don't worry - the alteration is so small it is unnoticeable in the hands, but the difference in sound is notable. While a small amount of high end is sacrificed, the increased volume of the lower register more than makes up for it, and this particular example features an Adirondack spruce top for maximum dynamic potential. Extremely well-kept with very little signs of wear, this mandolin could almost pass as brand new. It was recently set up and plays smooth all the way up the neck. Listen to TNAG's mandolin specialist Jordan Santiago take it for a spin in the demo video.
