mandolin Redefined

A New Standard

Combining traditional sensibilities with modern technologies, The KLOS Carbon Fiber Mandolin is your reliable and versatile work-horse mandolin.

Durable

This mandolin has a one-piece carbon fiber body and neck, with a seamless neck joint, and arch top soundboard. The carbon fiber delivers the durability and stability that we all crave in an instrument. No more cracks, warping, string action changes, and fear when using your mandolin. Take it on gigs, leave it in your car, always leave it out of the case, this piece of gear will change your relationship with playing mandolin.

Comfortable

The KLŌS mandolin is processed through one of the most advanced machines in the world: the PLEK machine. This computerized CNC machine levels the frets and cuts the string slots in the nut to the most precise positions super-humanly possible, allowing you to play more accurately and comfortable than what was possible before.

Reliable

Featuring a 12” radius in the fretboard which makes chord playing easier, stainless steel frets which will last a lifetime, traditional F holes, 3 carbon styles to choose from, and narrow to wide nut string spacing options. Because the neck joint has no heel, it creates unparalleled accessibility to the higher frets. High quality soft shell gig bag is included, which will help you keep it KLOS wherever you go.

Impressive

Perfectly Playable

String tension is no issue with carbon fiber. So, we're able to get the action insanely low, making one of the most comfortable mandolins to play.

Stunning Sound

Hear the KLOS difference for yourself.

AUDIO SAMPLES

DRIVEN BY INNOVATION

Building from Tradition

We're taking classic instrument design philosophy and injecting vision of the future, making instruments you won't want to leave behind.

Materials

Your choice between two expertly crafted carbon fiber materials.

BLACK CARBON FIBER TWILL

Our traditional black bi-lateral carbon fiber weave that you can see across all of our instruments since the beginning of KLOS. The sleek and defining "carbon fiber" style.

CARBON TIMBER

Like the look of wood but want the benefits of carbon fiber? Nickel-infused carbon fiber that's made to emulate the look of a wooden instrument. Ideal for the traditionalist on the outside, but innovator on the inside.

Pickups

Whether you're looking for no hassle or full control, we've got you covered.

PASSIVE
KLOS Mandolin Pickup
KLOS Transducer

The same transducer pickups as our active option, just without the preamp. We glue the transducers to the inside of the body for a clean look and worry-free play. Clearly amplify your own talent with this simple plug-and-play option.

K&K Mandolin Pickup
K&K Mandolin Twin

The K&K Twin is a dual-head transducer pickup that is designed to be installed in the mandolin bridge. The two heads allow for a more accurate sound reproduction and a more balanced tone. The K&K Twin is passive and does not require a battery.

ACTIVE
KLOS Mandolin Pickup
KLOS Mandolin EQ

Specifically designed for the KLOS Mandolin, fully control your sound and tone with this easy to access active transducer pre-amp. Featuring an on-board tuner, a phase button to mitigate feedback, a low battery indicator and a quick-replacement battery box.
