View Full Version : Mowry F #37

Mar-14-2009, 9:34am
I had the pleasure of purchasing Mowry F #37 this past fall. Simply a magnificent instrument! This is my first high end F style mandolin. As a long time high end acoustic guitar buyer, I have always admired the work of individual luthiers and small shop builders. The combination of great tonal quality and superb fit and finish is what does if for me!

This great mandolin possesses both of these desired outcomes. It has a big voice with that great Adirondack edge, and you can just imagine when you play it what it will turn into when the bass and trebles open up over time. And the workmanship is truly stunning! Easily on par (or beyond!) that of mandolins commanding far, far more of your wallet.

Thanks again Andrew for doing what you do, and doing it so very well!

Whoa! I've seen some nice Mowry's in my time ;), it's cool to see Andrew's take on something really traditional. Darn near perfect.

Congratulations. I own No. 41, and I love it. If you're ever in the Houston area, I'd love to pick together.

Are you from the Denver or Boulder area? I went to CU for a few years, and have fond memories.
