Selmer Style
The Boots “Nuage” model mandolin is a scaled version of the Maccaferri-Selmer Modele Jazz guitar of the 1930’s. Like the Selmers before it, the Nuage combines the full-toned sweetness of a flattop instrument with the “punch” of an archtop. With its long scale and light strings, the Nuage has a clear, well-balanced sound, making it suitable for everything from ‘choro’ and jazz to the classical ensemble.
