... well unique instrument with very warm and loud tone ...

Our OCTAVE MANDOLIN OM-2 is well unique instrument that was personally created and designed Roman.

The idea originally came from our U.S. friend Mr. August Watters (also well known mandolin player), who has been searching for an octave mandolin with shorter scale to be able to use classical mandolin fingering. That's why Roman created a "bigger A-2 mandolin" - two points instrument with an oval hole. Even though it is still impossible to use all standard mandolin chords, because the fingerboard is still too long, this new kind of instrument is of a very warm and loud tone and it is very good choice for all the musicians playing contemporary Celtic or ethnic music.

We use only top quality European spruce for the top, and high flame European maple for back, sides and neck. This instrument is tuned either as a classical octave mandolin - gg, dd, AA, EE or combined double strings - Gg, Dd, AA, EE.


This stock piece of our octave mandolin OM-2 has figured Flamed Maple back and sides, carved Alpine Spruce top with nice sunburst, Ebony fingerboard, Maple body & fingerboard binding, RZW-shape soudholes, Schaller tuners and nickel tailpiece.
