Northfield Calhoun flat top mandolin
A simple but effective design, the Calhoun bears a passing resemblance to the mandolins of the early 20th century. This mandolin was built to make the Northfield brand more reachable to the public. At the time, a budding market of beginner players and school music programs pushed demand for a good affordable mandolin. As a result, the Calhoun was created. In the design, nothing has been sacrificed that makes a mandolin sound great and work well.
This is a great sounding, no frills mandolin. And available at an affordable price.
