Twenty years ago, when Bruce Weber launched his collection of traditional stringed instruments, his motivation was learning and crafting customs. Rarely did Bruce make the exact same instrument twice. As the company grew, and demand increased custom building, each piece became more challenging. Nearly 100 music retailers began offering Weber instruments, requiring more standardization to service the mandolin marketplace.
But not wanting to get too far away from Bruce’s roots, we have launched a new program called The Weber Specialty Dealers. There is a limited number of music retailers that qualify – currently less than ten. Weber Specialty Dealers are the experts in traditional 8-string instruments. They understand the different sizes and shapes, their purpose and sound. Weber Specialty Dealers are authorized to custom design Yellowstone, Diamondback, Vintage, Fern and River platforms. Having worked with Weber over the last decade, each of these dealers has tremendous experience making each Weber instrument exactly to their customer's wishes.
