Here we have a beautiful Mendel octave mandolin in Figured Tzalam and Sitka Spruce. Tzalam is also known as Caribbean Walnut and hails from Central America. and is in many ways similar to Koa. As the name suggests, this wonderful instrument is intended to be tuned an octave below standard mandolin tuning, but is equally happy in alternate tunings. The sound is at once familiar yet refreshing. The unison-string chime of the mandolin family is present, but the strident, higher-pitched wail of the mandolin is replaced with a warmth and intimacy that harkens back to the Old World. And because of the larger air volume within the body, notes ring out and sustain like a church bell. An exquisite instrument that's different in all the right ways.

New Mendel Octave Mandolin -  Mandolin Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Joe Mendel continues to impress us with incredible quality and serious tone. I really like this Tzalam wood, it looks like really fine Koa that is now getting scarce and has a smooth tone perfect for the mandolin family. This one plays and feel fantastic." - Paul Heumiller

"This is a beautiful instrument with great looking curly wood in the back and sides and a maple neck. The tone is round and pure and pleasing to the ear." - Al Petteway
