Northfield "Big Mon" F-style mandolin with optional Engelmann top.

The Big Mon's body is about 5mm wider at the widest point and a bit deeper in some spots. While it doesn't look a whole lot bigger, it offers a tone that's warmer, louder, and all-around bigger than a standard F-style body.

The custom Engelmann top is a bit warmer and sweeter than the Adirondack spruce tops typically found on the Big Mon. It still has plenty of power and volume, but we think it's a little less bright and strident than Adirondack, making it a great choice for a melody-focused player.

For the full story on these amazing mandolins, we recommend checking out the official Northfield Big Mon product page.
