Nautilus #21 – Black Tie #2

This mandolin has a very distinctive voice. The midrange is strangely reminiscent of an oval-hole transverse braced mandolin, but the trebles have an excellent presence and overall it’s responsive, fun instrument.

David Mold has done a ton of great recordings with this instrument. I’m glad to see him having so much fun with it.
