Collings MT O Mandolin

With a fully carved Engelmann spruce top and maple back and sides, the Collings MT O mandolin produces a rich, woody tone that one would expect from a professional quality mandolin. The oval sound hole accentuates the bass and low mid response while providing a warm, open tonality that is rich in overtones.

Featuring simplified appointments but built to the same level of quality as Collings' high end models, the Collings MT O is one of their most accessibly priced A-style mandolins.

Collings' nitrocellulose lacquer satin finish provides an excellent combination of flexibility, protection, and affordability. While less labor intensive than a full gloss finish, the satin finish allows the rich, full tone of the instrument to come through and creates a unique patina.
