new, pictures, of interest
Bruce designed the new instrument label- beginning March.
George Lane visited and took a picture of the (attractive!) Weber crew in MT.

Homestead Pickin' Parlor, in Minnesota, was very active at the latest CMSA (Classical Mandolin Society) Convention. We sent over the prototype Weber Sopranolin for everyone to try out and we've heard it was well received- anyone attend and have a chance to hear or play it?

I posted this on FaceBook and I thought it might be of interest here, too. Sorry if it's a repeat- although probably not as it looked like they used mandolin sized back-drop- sheesh.
5 Bucks for a Weber
While I try to get videos up on our website Player, I confess to always being WAY behind. Several of our Dealers do a fine job however, and following is one comparing the Gallatin A with a Gallatin F
This is a very nice letter, however he goes a bit deeper on many levels.
Dear people at Sound to Earth,
Since a couple of days I am the lucky owner of a Weber Vintage F mandolin (9372710) and I am already deeply in love with its beauty.
