NEW ITALIAN MASTERPIECES SPAN THE OCTAVES!
Thanks for your interest in the unique mandolins designed and built
by Corrado Giacomel of Genoa, Italy. I'm very excited to be helping
this gifted builder promote and distribute these wonderful instruments.
I was certainly impressed enough with his J5 model to take it to
my first gig after receiving it. Lately I've been playing a custom
J3 model that Corrado built for me. Here it is on a track from my
recent FolkJazz Trio project: Beautiful Dreamer
Giacomel instruments are also available at Gruhn Guitars, Carter Vintage Instruments, Elderly Instruments and Schoenberg Guitars.
I just received two new Giacomel J5 mandolins (#11615 and #10012) with beautiful tone and playability, newly-designed tailpieces as well as two new custom 10-string instruments, a "Saturno" mandolin/mandola and it's companion "Saturno" mandola/mandocello. Here's what they look and sound like:
