We were overjoyed when Collings finally decided to expand their mandolin line to include oval soundhole models (instead of just f-hole versions). Now you can get the warmer tone this type of mandolin offers, but still get the radiused fretboard, incredible playability, plus the "fit & finish" Collings is known for. With tortoise-shell celluloid binding and warm brown stain to the maple, this MT 0 has subtle beauty. Like all Collings mandolins, this one can be LOUD when you need it, but the oval soundhole offers a wonderful tone when played quietly, especially if you're picking the strings around the 15th fret.
