Short Description

The Barnes & Mullin Salvino mandolin is a classic, F-style scroll top mandolin named after a recently uncovered 'Salvino' model from the turn of the 20th century.

Featuring a dark stained solid mahogany top and corresponding dark stained solid maple back and sides, the Salvino mandolin delivers a rich and warm tone with focus and clarity.

Complete with an ovangkol neck and fingerboard, nickel hardware and adjustable ebony bridge, the Salvino is the perfect model for beginners looking to discover the delights of the mandolin for the first time as well as established players wanting to add a great sounding F-style mandolin to their collection.

Why should I buy an F-Style mandolin?

Commonly played by professional mandolin players, F-style mandolins feature an upper body scroll and scrolled headstock – making them aesthetically distinctive from A-style mandolins. Their more elaborate body and headstock design naturally uses more tonewood materials and requires a greater level of craftmanship.

There is little discernible difference in the sound produced compared to A-style mandolins. However, F-style mandolins are ever so slightly more resonant due to their larger body chamber and tonewood area are historically favoured for bluegrass music, as they are considered to have more 'cut-through' in a ensemble situation.
