Tonedevil HM-12 Harp Mandolin


Tone and Dave Powell have been building guitars, mandolins and harp guitars for many years now, and continue to create new products.  One of their latest is a harp mandolin with sub-basses, patterned after my own c.1910 Knutsen harp mandolin, a killer design!

Once again, the Powell brothers have created a repeatable product with sufficiently attractive aesthetics that remains affordably priced.

To this end, appointments are kept simple, the satin finish is held to a reasonable minimum with visible open grains on the back and sides, while hardware, set-up and tone are all excellent.  Itís a sweet and nicely balanced mandolin, with a passive Tonedevil 3-contact piezo pickup system to crank it up live.

It comes with a custom padded wood case.

Plectrum or fingerstyle, harp mando is a wonderful invention!
