The Barnes & Mullins Salvino Mandolin, originally established in London in the early 1900s, Barnes & Mullins became one of the most famous names associated with high quality banjos. Today, the company reissues some of its most popular models. These instruments allow today’s musicians to enjoy a fantastic high quality banjo at an affordable price, developed with the same expertise and attention to detail as they were over 100 years ago.
The Barnes & Mullins Salvino Mandolin is a classic, F-Hole scroll top mandolin named after a recently uncovered ‘Salvino’ model from the turn of the 20th century. F-Hole style mandolins are historically favoured for bluegrass music, as they are considered to have more ‘cut-through’ in a ensemble situation, allowing themselves to be heard more easily above other acoustic instruments. This instrument is constructed using carefully selected solid woods including a solid Mahogany top.
