Howdy folks. This new baby has been 6 months in the design and drawing and 3 months in the carving and building. Now she is ready for the world. Welcome "Faith" the new Mia FM-7 mandola. And she is one big baby. The overall length is 31 inches, the width of the body is 11 inches and scale length is 17 inches from nut to bridge.  The arched top is solid carved spruce with scalloped X spruce tone bars and an oval sound hole. The arched back is solid carved figured maple, as is the sides and neck. The neck is fitted with a 3.2 cm width polished bone nut, rose wood fretboard, and an adjustable truss rod. For added resonance I dressed her out with a solid cast tailpiece. The finish is a bold burnished red with a thin Shellac and lacquer. The volume on "Faith" is huge, and enthralling. It draws you in. The tone is a smooth woody bass experience with gorgeous clear highs. The sound just flows and resonates for what seems like forever. It is easy to play. You can tune this baby like a mandolin if you so desire too.

Howdy folks. This newest designed instrument from Clarinda's Crafts & Music. The overall length is 31 inches, the width of the body is 11 inches and scale length is 17 inches from nut to bridge.  This beauty has a built in pickup made here in my shop, and an active system preamp that has volume, bass, treble, middle and a tuner all in one compact super sounding unit right on the side.  The arched top is solid carved spruce with scalloped spruce tone bars. The arched back is solid carved figured maple, as are the sides and neck. The neck is fitted with a 3.2 cm width polished bone nut, rose wood fretboard, and an adjustable truss rod. For added resonance I dressed her out with a solid cast tailpiece. The finish is a hand rubbed oil.  The tone is a smooth woody, Chritmas Eve bass experience with Christmas morning choir like highs. The sound just flows and resonates for what seems like forever. It is easy to play. You can tune this baby like a mandolin, like a mandola, or like an octave mandolin. It sounds beautiful all 3 ways. 





These are the newest A-style and F-style mandolins made here at Clarinda's Crafts & Music in Greenbrier Arkansas. The tops are made of solid hand carved and graduated spruce and fitted with scalloped forward X spruce tone bars. The necks play very easy and are fitted with adjustable truss rods and polished bone nuts. The neck, back and sides are carved from solid maple. The finish is a beautiful  shellac and hand rubbed oil, to allow all the beauty of the wood to shine through. The A-style is done in natural, and the F-style is done in a tobacco burst coloring. Acoustically, the sound is pure and woody, with excellent volume and sustain. To further enhance the sound, I fitted the A-style mandolin with a solid cast fan tail piece. This new finish of just shellac and oil makes these mandolins resonate like an Celtic chant.  Check out some of the other mandolins I have built here at clarindasmusic.com and also listen to some of the Mia mandolins and mandolas on YouTube. There are also a few videos there of the Mia guitars I have built.
