Thread: BRW blackface A

    Default BRW blackface A

    Got this new BRW blackface from Ben a few weeks ago. It already sounds great and looking for it to get even better. Plenty of volume, bass and midrange pop in the strings. Highs are sweet but not extremely bright, just what I was looking for. Craftmanship is excellent, and plays real smooth. He does great work. I've played it on stage several times already and it really cuts a mic. Can't wait to record with it.

    Glad the mandolin's playing and sounding well. It's really classy looking--congrats on pairing up with that one!

    Ben makes a very clean and classy mandolin. I love that black top! Enjoy it.

    When you combine Ben's instruments and his photographic skills the result is art, suitable for framing. Looks like some new screen saver material.

    Very nice.
