A BIG Voice!
Dell Arte Mandocello

It's a biggie. The body measures about 17-1/2 inches across, and it's deep, too. But that's what you need if you're going to handle that low "C." This instrument Indian rosewood back and sides with spruce top, and ebony fittings, and is finished with a highly polished lacquer. Hey, look at the photos of the back. I just couldn't keep the reflections down - you get a good view of my tripod off to the right, and, if you look closely, me, too.

All in all, this is a fine adaptation of the classic mandocello.
