Thread: Looking for an acoustic baritone mando

    Default Looking for an acoustic baritone mando

    Hey all,

    I am looking for an acoustic/electric baritone 5string mandolin.

    I currently play a 5 string Rono electric.

    I know that the late Jean Paul Charles made some.

    I have a message in to Manndolins, but his Facebook is inactive, and no new info is on his website.

    I am fine with a custom build by a good luthier, but Id like one with experience working with this scale length and style of instrument.

    Thanks for your recommendations and ideas.

    I got a great reply from Mr. Mann, who is no longer building acoustic instruments.

    So other ideas are welcome. Thanks.

    Here is my 10 string mandocello from Tom "TJ" Jessen at Cricketfiddle. Here is a quick video I did with my phone shortly after I got it a few years back:

    26" scale. Strings are J78; C - .074, G - .048, D - .034, A - .022, E - .014. Looks like the octave pairs (C, G, D) are just half the diameter of the standard string. This also has a JJB PPS-200 installed so it is AE. I also posted a vid on the slack-key thread.
