Mandolins were small pear-shaped string instruments.[1]


When played as accompanying instruments, mandolins provided a delicate fluttering sound. They were also performed as solo instruments.[1]

Mandolins produced in Calimshan were available for purchase through Aurora's Whole Realms Catalogue.[1]
