The Cremonese or Brescian mandolin became popular from the second half of the 18th century until the first decades of the 19th century, and its definition is due to Bortolazzi, author of the first German-language mandolin method, published at the beginning of the 19th century (Anweisung die Mandoline, Leipzig, Breitkopf & Härtel, 1805).

The research on the original instruments that survived until today show that they had vibrating lengths around 30-33 cm, and certainly used four single strings tuned in fifths (like the Neapolitan mandolin or the violin: e, a, G, D), with 9 to 10 frets on the fingerboard.

This modern version that seeks the same kind of sound as the historical one but using modern synthetic materials. It uses two synthetic New Nylgut strings and two copper wound strings on a synthetic multifilament core

Attention: This set is suitable for Cremonese or Brescian Mandolin only. Please do not install them on Country Mandolin.
