MT-30 Mandolin

(Code: MT-30)

A mandolin is a musical instrument in the lute family (plucked, or strummed). It has f-holes. Early mandolins had six double courses of gut strings, tuned similarly to lutes, and plucked with the fingertips. Modern mandolins, which originated in Naples, Italy, in the late 18th century, commonly have four double courses (four pairs) of metal strings, which are plucked with a plectrum. Like any plucked instrument, mandolin notes decay to silence rather than sound out continuously as with a bowed note on a violin. Its small size and higher pitch make mandolin notes decay faster than larger stringed instruments like guitar. The mandolin's paired strings facilitate this technique: the plectrum (pick) strikes each of a pair of strings alternately, providing a more full and continuous sound than a single string would.
