Barnes & Mullins Mandolin – Piercy Model

A superb scroll top mandolin 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, F-hole equipped instruments are considered to have more ‘cut-through’ in a ensemble situation.
