Whether you're looking for a snappy bluegrass mandolin, a custom octave mandolin, or a classic mandocello, you will find my instruments to be among the finest. Subtle tailoring, combined with an innovative bracing system, produce a mandolin with power, sustain, and balance from bass to treble. Seasoned professionals and dedicated amateurs alike will find the warm, rich tone outstanding in the studio, on the concert stage or at front porch sessions.

Each mandolin, mandola, octave mandolin and mandocello is constructed with the finest high-figure maple back, sides and neck; choice hand-split spruce top; ebony fingerboards and bridges; Schaller tuning machines; spirit varnish (made in house); bound fingerboard and headstock.
