Spruce-topped mandolin has excellent sound projection

For optimal projection, the Washburn M1S mandolin is fitted with a spruce top. Spruce has long been used in instruments ranging from violins, guitars, and mandolins for its bright sound and great projection. An expertly fitted rosewood bridge makes full contact with the spruce top to capture and transfer the string vibrations of every note you play on the Washburn M1S mandolin.

Maple back and sides deliver classic mandolin tones

Maple has been the choice wood for the back and sides of instruments such as the mandolin and violin. Not only does it look great but it adds a brightness and volume that other woods don't. The Washburn M1S mandolin sports maple back and sides to deliver outstanding acoustic tones.

Since 1883, Washburn has been producing fretted instruments

With humble beginnings in Chicago that date back to the 1880s, Washburn is an American institution in musical instrument manufacturing. From guitars to mandolins, banjos, ukuleles, and more, Washburn has long been a recognized and cherished brand among musicians. Many of the biggest names in folk, blues, and rock 'n' roll have played these well-crafted, quality instruments.
