The Mandolin has grown hugely in popularity over the last few years and what it has previously lacked in style it makes up for in sound. The Tanglewood TWMTBKPE F Hole Mandolin complete with single coil pickup delivers classic Mandolin tone but adds a layer of style thanks to its dark finish, white scratchplate and chrome hardware. If you want a slick Mandolin that plays just as well as it looks, the Tanglewood TWMTBKPE is for you.
THE RIGHT WOODS FOR THE JOB
The body of the TWMTBKPE Mandolin is crafted from Linden (Basswood) which has a distinct mid-range tone ideal for the voicing of a Mandolin. Linden also rings out with nice sustain and whilst being a colourless wood, is certainly harmonically rich. The TWMTBKPE is also very lightweight but being a Tanglewood it has that 'solid' feel synonymous with a high quality instrument.
The neck of the TWMTBKPE is formed from Burmese Teak, a very smooth wood that has been shaped to a comfortable profile. The addition of the black gloss finish on the back of the neck makes for a fluid playing experience that will always be a joy, even through those long jam sessions that tend to run late into the night.
SINGLE COIL PICKUP SYSTEM
This version of the TWMTBKPE F Hole Mandolin comes complete with a single coil pickup so that it can be plugged into amplifiers or PA equipment. This simple but effective pickup will replicate the sound of the Mandolin with exceptional accuracy so that it can be EQ'd via the amp or desk.
If you want a stylish, premium quality Mandolin with amplification capability that will deliver many years of untarnished performance, the Tanglewood TWMTBKPE F Hole Mandolin complete with Pickup is well worth considering.
