The Celtic Spirit
With an ever increasing market for quality hand made instruments Paul Evans has introduced the ‘Celtic Spirit’ range which is a ‘no frills but all the trills’ mandolin. They are exactly the same build as the fancy custom models and sound the same but basically don’t have the fancy trim added. They are incredible value for an Irish hand crafted instrument and in my opinion the best currently on offer from any European maker, even the machine heads are top quality geared type.
The Celtic spirit range of instruments including mandolin, octave mandolin and bouzouki are totally hand crafted solely by Paul Evans with no use of cnc machinery. These instruments offer great sound, build quality, and playability. Each hand crafted mandolin is totally bespoke to your order, made from imported American solid timbers giving you the customer a choice of wood builds. As an example you can have a Celtic Spirit with European spruce top, with mahogony back and sides and black tuners. Or you can have a cedar top with sapele back and sides and black or gold plated tuners. Upgrades are also available at a minimum cost using more expensive woods i.e. cedar top with walnut back and sides (50 euros extra) western red ceder top with maple or rosewood back and sides (100 euros extra).
