Wavelength Octave Mandolin | Northfield Mandolins
 
Northfield's Adrian Bagale and Derek Smith discuss the company's new short-scale octave mandolin.
August 24, 2023

Northfield introduced its guitar-shaped archtop and flattop octave mandolins several years ago, and has been a major force in the growing popularity of this low-tuned member of the mandolin family. Reacting to feedback from players who were asking for a more compact octave-tuned instrument, Northfield has now come out with the A-Style Wavelength octave mandolin. Featuring a 19-inch scale (Northfield’s guitar-shaped octave mandolins have a 22-inch scale), a West Virginian red spruce top and flamed Michigan maple back and sides, the Wavelength expands on Northfield’s already impressive octave mandolin offerings. Northfield’s Adrian Bagale and Derek Smith demonstrate and discuss the instrument in this video.
