About the new Yellowstone Series: The Yellowstone has earned a complete face lift with a high gloss Burnt Amber burst and ivoroid top and back binding with black/white/black purfling. The new dovetail neck joint and the hand-voicing of the 3A Sitka spruce tops give the Yellowstone new chops! Now available in Mandolin, Mandola, Octave Mandolin and Mandocello. You can read in-depth articles about the new dovetail neck joint, hand-voicing, color work and more at WeberMandolins.com
About the new Weber: The Weber team of craftsmen have left no stone unturned in finding ways to enhance the sound, look and feel of our 2018 selection of Weber Fine Acoustic Instruments. Weber Luthier Ryan Fish invested this last year studying mandolin sound. From Lloyd Loar to current builders, he has compared sound and feel by
deflection and profile. Perfecting hand voicing with the assistance of analytical tools, Ryan and our Weber Team of craftsmen have been able to dramatically advance the sound, chop, tone and volume of every Weber mandolin model.
