Get Enhanced Volume And Positive Projection - The Ovation MM68AX Acoustic Electric Mandolin W/Koa Top, "Distressed Sunburst" Finish (Demo*)
The Ovation Mandolin is designed from the ground up as an acoustic/electric instrument. It features a hand-selected solid top with lightweight, Mando-Quintad bracing, designed to enhance punch and a positive projection.
Ovation's pioneering multi-soundhole design enhances string vibration and sustain by improving soundboard efficiency. With its roundback composite body, the Ovation Mandolin can offer more acoustic volume and cutting power than expensive flatback models.
The instrument's upper-bout soundholes are inlaid with exotic hardwoods, and a cutaway offers full access to the sleek, satin finished maple neck and ebony fretboard. A custom high-output pickup and a special version of the OP-24+ preamp give the Ovation Mandolin truly unparalleled amplified tone.
THE OP-24+ PREAMP
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. Includes case.
