This Collings MT2 Mandola was featured in their booth -- and just a look tells you why. The subtle, dark-tinged sunburst finish is a nice foil for the powerful, bell-like sound that jumps out of this instrument. As with their MT2 mandolin, you won't find a more compelling-sounding mandola in this price point. And the Italian-Spruce-topped models are consistently the warmest and most lyrical sounding of the bunch: they offer the volume and cut of Red Spruce, with a rounder, more tuneful attack to the note. Priced with TKL hard case.
