Trinity College Mandolins are designed for traditional Celtic music, though they are used in a wide variety of other styles as well. They are the fineest instruments of their type.
Workmanship and materials are exquisite throughout. Top quality, all-solid wood construction by highly skilled meticulous craftsman using select, solid, close-grained mahogany for necks and top quality rosewood for fingerboards assures that every Trinity College Celtic Mandolin is of the highest possible quality.
The traditionally styled body is complemented by an elegant snakehead peghead with a distinctive abalone inlay in the black-white-black overlay. Slim fast neck with adjustable truss rod assures maximum playing ease. The X-braced soundboard produces a rich, mellow tone with great projection. Cosmetic details include M.O.P. position dot inlays, ivoroid binding and durable high gloss finish.
In the last 30 years, the Irish Bouzouki has come to the forefront of the Celtic Music scene. Played in a variety of tunings, the pairs of strings are often tuned A-D-G-C, and octave below the mandola. The deep, rich voice of the Irish Bouzouki is perfect for accompaniment as well as lead and solo work. Trinity College, with the introduction of its TM-375 Irish Bouzouki, has answered the prayers of all the players who have no other choice but an expensive, "boutique" instrument. The TM-375 offers the same quality, style and sound for far less cost. Every TM-375 is fully shop-adjusted prior to shipment, and each is furnished with a deluxe, hard shell case.
