Old German domeback mandriola
This is an old, German mandriola, probably from the early to mid 20th century. It is in fairly good condition after restoration. There is a label which says…
(translation: 'for demanding people')
The top is now sound with3 shrinkage repairs. It has a 7-piece dome back in good condition, no repairs. It has the original fingerboard, with re-levelled frets. The tuners are original and in good condition. The refitted bridge and tailpiece are original. It has been refinished throughout with Tru-oil. It is now playing well with a strong, bright, rounded sound with good volume and sustain. It has an easy playing action, though playing a triple course instrument requires a little practice.
Other than cleaning,I have repaired as follows… 1) repaired 3 fine shrinkage cracks in the top; 2) repaired damage to purfling and edging top front left, and to scratchplate; 3) levelled and dressed the frets; 4) refinsihed throughout with Tru-oil; 5) refitted the bridge; and 6) restrung with mandriola strings.
