A classic scroll-top Mandolin with a long heritage. 

The Barnes & Mullin Salvino mandolin is a classic, F-style scroll top mandolin named in honour of a recently uncovered B&M 'Salvino' model from the late 1900s. With a dark stained solid mahogany top and complementary dark stained, solid maple back and sides, the Salvino mandolin delivers a warm, mellow tone.

The Salvino is complete with an ovangkol neck and fingerboard, nickel hardware and an adjustable ebony bridge. It is a great choice for the newer player who wants to ensure quality without breaking the bank, but equally well suited to established players wanting to add a great sounding F-style mandolin to their collection.

Why should I buy an F-Style Mandolin?

Commonly played by professional mandolin players, F-style mandolins feature an upper body scroll and scrolled headstock – making them aesthetically distinctive from A-style mandolins. Their more elaborate body and headstock design naturally uses more tonewood materials and requires a greater level of craftsmanship. 

There is little discernible difference in the sound produced compared to A-style mandolins. However, F-style mandolins are ever so slightly more resonant due to their larger body chamber and tonewood area. They are historically favoured for bluegrass music as they are considered to have more 'cut-through' in a ensemble situation.
