Very few instruments are capable of expressing the range of emotion and energy of a mandolin. Listen to a great bluegrass band and you’ll instantly begin to appreciate how the mandolin makes the sad songs somehow seem sadder, and puts the smile and lilt in the happy songs. It can produce an amazing edge or bark, and then be gentle and sweet.

The mandolin is also one of those rare instruments that seems at home in lots of different musical styles. Pop, rock, and country have always used the mandolin for color and texture, as well as for solo work. Just messing around with one can make you feel great.

The McCOY™ series A-style teardrop shapes produces a lush, full sound that is ideal for rhythm fill, as well as for the obligatory lead work. The solid top models provide for a full range of tone with great projection and power. The Quilt maple sides and back give it that extra edge and clarity that players demand if they are to be heard over a powerful dreadnought and banjo.
