Ovation Pro Series Mandolin Black
The Ovation Pro Series Mandolin features a hand-selected solid-spruce top with lightweight, Mando-Quintad bracing designed to enhance punch and projection. Ovation's pioneering multi-sound hole design enhances string vibration and sustain by improving soundboard efficiency.
With its Round back composite body, the Ovation Mandolin offers more acoustic volume and cutting power than expensive fatback models. The instrument's upper-bout sound holes are inlaid with exotic hardwoods, and a cutaway offers full access to the sleek, satin-finished 5-piece mahogany/maple neck and ebony freeboard.
A custom high-output pickup and special version of the OP-24+ preamp give the Ovation Mandolin unparalleled amplified tone. Offering whisper-quiet audio circuitry with very low distortion, the OP-24+ features 3-band EQ with a bypass switch, a Mid-Shift control for selecting a midrange center frequency of either 400 Hz or 1 kHz, a Pre-Shape circuit for boosting bass and treble response while cutting rumble-prone frequencies below 40 Hz, and a battery status light. To provide complete control over the high-output preamp signal, the OP-24+ has a custom-taper volume slider.
