- Type: People Who Play
My name is Robbie Robinson and am currently from Tucson, Arizona. I have been a musician for 35 years. Started playing guitar when I was 10 years old and loved pickin ever since. I have played all kinds of music and have played in many bands. I grew up in the Blue Ridge mountains of western North Carolina. Bluegrass music was all around me. I now have gone back to my roots (bluegrass) and play in group here in Tucson. This started me on the road to learn the mandolin. Although I can play banjo, guitar, bass.... The mandolin was a new instrument for me. This also started my search for a quality mandolin. I started my search by asking all the players I new in the area about mandolins and what was a good instrument. I then went to the computer searching different makers thru there web sites. Then i started playing different brands,? I tried many major brands & amp; private luthiers, etc...and then.... I got to play a Weber..WOW!!!... You guys do it right....My mandolin has all the demanding things I was looking for. Great tone ,volume, playability, beauty....Craftsmanship is superb...Thank you all for making such a great instrument for me... I have a 2006 Yellowstone Custom. Antique walnut finish and binding, extended fingerboard etc...I love it.? It would take a lot to pry it from my hands...Thanks again for your support. I look forward to playing more Webers.
