Bright-sounding with good sustain, volume and bell-like tone is what I aim for. Mandolins can be built as either 8 or 10 string instruments. For mandolins, I generally use Sitka or Engelmann Spruce fronts for my 'standard' model.
A large variation in instrument tone is possible through the combination of timbers used in construction and in the body depth, but in general I'd describe my mandolins as more suitable for Celtic rather than bluegrass music...
