I took a run over to Greg Boyd's House of Fine Instruments to drop off a few from the new batch. Britt Armesen thought a video would be a great way for folks to hear some of the tones these new mandolins are producing. Thanks, Britt & Richie!!! Y'all rock!!!
Huge thanks to Spencer Miller for putting this together, and Julay Brooks for joining me on mandolin (#19) to play New Five Cent Piece! The fifth batch will have all one-piece tops from one beautiful, straight chunk of Sitka spruce! Thanks, y'all!!!
I'm really just a banjo player, but here's a little of what they're sounding like. Mr. Matt Vernon joined me with his D-18. Kelly Bauman took the sound recording. Trippe Davis tackled video & editing. Thanks a bunch, guys!
