Product Description

The Barnes & Mullins BM700 Piercy Mandolin is a traditional scroll top instrument. It is named in honour of the ”Piercy” sisters to whom Bowley Barnes and Albert Mullins were married. Historically favoured for bluegrass music, this BM700 scroll-top has a soundhole in place of the F-holes usually found on most other scroll-top mandolins. This soundhole lends a broader tonal range to the player, with a more complete sound across the spectrum. However, instruments equipped with F-holes are considered to have more ‘cut-through’ in a ensemble situation.

What we say about the BM700

The Piercy mandolin is extremely sharp looking. Having a light stain maple and spruce gives it a slightly more modern look, and due to the woods used, the mandolin has a lovely rounded, yet bright and crisp tone.
