In 1922, mandolin designs began to change, as did the musical tastes of the time.
The greatest Acoustic Engineer of the day began to develop designs
that incorporated F-shaped sound holes instead of the Oval-hole designs that ultimately tightened-up the airy,
woody nature of the traditional A-shape, and accentuated the treble frequencies
often lacking in previous designs. All combined, these instruments offered
the musician better balance and greater volume to meet the ever-changing musical styles to come.
The Kentucky KM-256 Artist A-model Mandolin offers a professional quality instrument
that is still affordably priced. All materials are hand-carved, with the tops and backs
meticulously arched and graduated to achieve the correct balance of strength
and lightweight rigidity for optimal tone.
So, for the best value out there in a professional-quality
A-style mandolin, make America's Favorite mandolin your choice!
