Description

Gold Tone has a reputation for building quality instruments at an affordable price. That's exactly why we selected them for our clients who asked us for workhorse instruments for gigging, travel and creative inspiration. The Octave Mandolin 800 Plus, OM-800+, is tuned one octave lower than a standard mandolin. The Gold Tone OM-800+ features include low action and a thin neck for rapid playing. The mahogany back and sides help promote a warm yet punchy tone and the arched solid spruce top increases sustain and volume. Now offered with a compound radius fingerboard and extended scale length, this instrument is amazingly playable. We love it for Celtic music, think Bouzouki, and it's equally at home strummed or played single line. Complete with a pickup and a hard shell case included!

Hard to believe Gold Tone can produce an Octave Mandolin (Bouzouki) this good at this price, but man this is fun! The nut width and neck feel great and the sounds really projects. This would be a great instrument for Celtic jams, a band setting or anyone that wants to try something new. Complete with a pickup and hardshell case as well!
 
I'm a big fan of the octave mandolin or "Irish Bouzouki." This one is easy to play and has a perfectly balanced tone with sweet highs, powerful mids and full bass. Definitely a great deal.
