Pava mandolins are built alongside those of Tom Ellis, and share the same excellent build quality and aesthetic appeal, while retaining their own unique voice.
Why We Love This
It's been a little while since we've had a brand new (!) Pava A5 Player mandolin in the shop, and to say we're excited would be an understatement! With experience building at both Collings and Ellis mandolins, Pava Knezevic is equally well-regarded for her own impeccable instruments, crafted by hand in her Austin, TX workshop. This new A5 features a Red Spruce top and Red Maple back and sides, a particularly lively combination in Pava's hands, with a warm responsiveness and slightly scooped mid-range. Pava's mid-tier appointment level, the "Player" package includes a full gloss finish, single-bound top and back, Ellis bridge and James tailpiece. The ideal instrument for any player looking to move into a professional-level instrument that will last a lifetime. Priced with Superior fiberglass hardshell case!
