MANDOLINS

MANDOLINS | Derringers Music Store | Adelaide Australia

Derringers Music has a great range of Mandolins. The modern mandolin is found in all genres of music from rock bands through bluegrass and folk to classical. At the turn of the 20th Century mandolin orchestras were popular then in the through the early teens of the 20th Century the mandolin was the main lead instrument in many vocal duets. From the late 1930s the mandolin was a key feature in Bluegrass bands with the music genre founder, Bill Monroe, popularising the instrument as a solo feature instrument.

The pedigree of the mandolin goes back to the Italian Mandolino or Small Mandola, a lute shaped instrument that was used in clasical music. These mandolins are often referred to as the Neapolitan or round-backed mandolin. At the turn of the 20th century the mandolin was re-designed by Orville Gibson and later Lloyd Loar of the Gibson Mandolin and Guitar Company, to be a carved top and back instrument like its Violin cousin. Gibson Mandolins signed by Lloyd Loar in the early 1920s are amongst the world's most expensive instruments.

The mandolin features 8 strings in four pairs. Each pair is normally tuned to the same note to increase the volume and sustain of the note. The four [pairs of] strings are tuned the same as the Violin.

Today a wide variety of mandolins are made by manufacturers all around the world and Derringers Music stock a good selection for you to purchase.
