Oval Hole Mandolins vs F Hole Mandolins

Aesthetics and construction aside, oval hole mandolins will usually have a warmer, more woody tone and offer greater projection, sustain and resonance - particularly in the lower register.

F-hole mandolins will typically offer a brighter tone, with more volume and a stronger attack. Sometimes, they can offer a slightly more percussive sound, depending on the instrument. The higher the quality of the craftsmanship however, the fewer the differences that exist between the two styles.
