This is a great example of an early walnut finish National Triolian Mandolin, the most popular of the California company's depression-era 8-string creations. With a retail price of $40.00 in the early 1930's, this steel-bodied machine offered a lot of sonic firepower for the player's hard-earned money. This is one of the loudest mandolins you will ever hear, but played more softly has a surprisingly rich bell-like tone. Perfect for ragtime and jugband styles, and a great match to any walnut finish Triolian guitar.
This nearly century-old mandolin is as cool as they come, with plenty of honest wear and a brand new resonator cone installed - the sound is fat, raw and throaty, with incredible harmonics and a massive amount of volume. Includes non-original hardshell case.
