The Calhoun is Northfield's new A-style mandolin built in their Michigan workshop. 

The flat top design and understated appointments allow Northfield to offer these mandolins a much lower price point than their carved top F-style mandolins without compromising craftsmanship, playability, and tone.

Surprisingly loud with a crisp, woody voice.

Northfield's Description

Designed with a nod to the entry level mandolins of the early 20th century and a clear understanding of the limitations often associated with them, the Calhoun is not a mandolin exclusively targeted to be inexpensive.

It was created to make Northfield Mandolins more easily accessible to our growing demand among beginners and interested school programs, without sacrificing a whole bunch of things that make mandolins work well.
