Here's the deluxe Collings mandola, essentially the mandola version of the popular Collings MT2 mandolin. Although the mandola was originally intended for playing viola parts in a mandolin orchestra, today the mandola is seen in a much wider range of musical settings. The lower pitch makes it more compatible with the range of most vocalists, and the additional bass response makes it more enjoyable to many ears when played solo.
