Thread: Weber, the best years.

    Bruce made some beautiful mandolins under the Weber name. I had an early 2000's Bitterroot, spruce top and mahogany back and it was a beautiful mandolin with a lovely sound but so quiet which I was putting down to the mahogany back. I used to have to really attack it to hear myself at a session. I loved it for playing at home but I moved it on a few years back. Last year I got a 2005 Weber Bridger with cedar top and maple back and sides, and it covers all bases, rings out lovely when played gently and real loud when needed, delighted with it. Both mandolins had satin finishes which I love.

    Course I think theyre worth it alone just for the smell when you open the case! Heaven!

    Mine is a '99 with a cast tailpiece. I tried to sell it once, unsuccessfully I'm glad to say! While the mahogany-back don't show up for sale as often as maple-back, they are usually considerably lower priced.
