The Small Celtic O mandolin isn’t so small! It’s just a bit smaller than my regular mandolins which are really big. The Small Celtic O mandolin is similar in size to a Sobell Celtic mandolin. The design and construction is similar to the larger model, but the sound has more focus, with excellent projection.
The Small Celtic O mandolin back is curved rather than carved.
The instruments featured are a beautiful high gloss Small Celtic O mandolin in European spruce and flam jarrah, and a a satin finish prototype in European spruce and maple.
The Small Celtic O mandolin is shipped in a hard case, in a plywood packing crate.
