Northfield seeks input from the best mandolin artists working today, and their artist roster reads like a who’s who of mandolin music. Mike Marshall has been actively involved in a long series of sound tests and recordings with the Northfield crew, and Adam Steffey has been onboard since the earliest stages of the Northfield saga. More innovation is on the way, including a model made from start to finish in Michigan. While the Big Mon F models sell for over $4,000, the Northfield S Series F models sell for much less. These S models offer the same quality woodworking and excellent tone but by only binding the edge of the Adirondack spruce top the number of hours in each instrument is significantly reduced (the back and neck are left unbound). Introducing The “Airloom” mandolin case designed and made by Northfield Mandolins. Made with a robust multi-ply fiberglass shell this case is designed to protect your most prized possessions. Strength and rigidity are coupled with a compact and sleek form factor, making it very travel friendly. The "Airloom" has a contemporary look while remaining inside the traditional realm, taking leads from the styling found on the most famous oblong cases ever made. Cases are made in small batches and available exclusively through Northfield Mandolins. Also included is a Northfield case cover in Gray.
