  1. Great Music


    Mike Terry, of Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers, has a new mandolin on the way as he has joined forces with Weber Mandolins as their newest endorsee. "I am excited to be an endorsee for Weber," states Mike. "I love the big woody tone and the fact they are all American handmade instruments. Thanks to Bruce Weber, for his friendly, professional knowledge on building a mandolin that's right for me."

Those second guesses just kept coming and coming...

    So, I'm getting a Weber Custom Vintage A (oval hole) mandolin just like I wanted. I had a great conversation with Bruce on the

    Once again, this was a design your own venture. It's a Gallatin Mandola with "The Weber" on the headstock, a trad Brekke Bridge, a D hole and Antique Walnut instead of the normal finish.

The fifth tuning works just as well in longer scale and I was able to play it straight away. Interesting, but I still on my mandolin quest.

  10. The Next Level

    There has been some discussion about the progression of mandolin ownership. Starting on a beginners mandolin and upgrading to something better, but not too good lest we seem pretentious, and then upgrading from there to “the next level” as soon as we deserve it, and can afford it, and so on. And lots of fascinating discussion occurs regarding what make and model of mandolin is appropriate to each level in the continuum from embryo to awesome.
