- Type: People Who Play
This will be brief as I have only been playing mandolin about 2 years. I played keyboards and guitar many years ago, but discovered bluegrass music and decided to try the mandolin. I have been working to learn the music as well as the instrument by playing at jams. Last March I decided I needed to upgrade from the mandolin I had to something better. Weber was recommended by a couple players I know. I got the opportunity to try one when My Favorite Guitars set up shop in Naples, Florida. I was not planning on buying one that day, but Jon Garon let me play a couple of Webers and I loved the sound, the bark and the feel of one of the Yellowstones. I particularly liked the scallop at the end of the neck. At this time I am working on developing my chops and bluegrass play list by practicing and performing with a group out of Owensboro, Kentucky (incidentally the home of the International Bluegrass Museum). The beautiful look and sound of the Weber mandolin gets noticed wherever I play."
