Northfield Big Mon F5 Engelmann Spruce Top - UK
Big Mon with Engelmann Spruce top, violin varnish neck, engraved Bill James tailpiece. This one comes with the Airloom case at no extra charge - see photos - it would normally add £250.
I sold eight Big Mon's in 2016. I have only been allocated four for 2017.
The Northfield Big Mon has been creating quite a stir. It has a big fat tone with fantastic volume and projection. Created as the ideal bluegrass hoss (or cannon if you prefer) it has an amazing chop and great depth and richness of tone to take on pretty well any style, with great responsiveness from the lightest touch to the heaviest attack with a thick pick it is fantastic for all types of playing.
From the Northfield website. "Our "Big Mon" Mandolin is something we created in our shop. In an effort to try and create a little more mid range and bass response, with a nice airy sound, we developed this model to have a distinct voice. Here's what we did..
The "Big Mon" body style is just slightly different than the standard size. We've increased the width of the body, at its widest point, by 5mm. We've also adjusted the depth/width of the sides a little in a few places. Everything is in proportion to this change, so it results in a slightly larger body overall. It's not very noticeable unless you compare it directly to another standard size by lining them up back to back."
Sorry, we cannot ship to the U.S.
