Northfield Calhoun Mandolin


Northfield Mandolins have earned a reputation for the highest-quality handmade mandolins, crafted in their dual workshops in Michigan USA and Qingdao, China, at an unbeatable price. Built by a small team of highly-talented luthiers, Northfield has quickly become known for the quality and consistency of their superb instruments, using local materials and traditional building techniques.

Made completely in Northfield's Marshall, Michigan, shop, this flat-top A-model mandolin is an incredible sounding instrument - responsive, rich, and cutting. It’s built with a solid Italian spruce top, Red Maple back-and-sides, and Black Walnut bridge and fingerboard. Designed with early 20th-century aesthetics in mind, the Calhoun pairs an old-time look with unbelievable tone. Ships with hardshell case.
