    Wow! This is another beauty from Max and Lauri. It has a very strong tone with an amazing full and loud chop for the bluegrassers and much, much more. The bass notes are very full and well defined, the mids complex and full of character and the trebles clear and 'fat'. Great for just about any mandolin style.

    I like Collings cream top finish so much that I have ordered it for my custom mandola (and being greedy on a Girouard mandola as well). To use one of my favourite Clichés it sounds as good as it looks. Fantastic in all departments, rich, full and well defined in the bass department, sweet and warm in the mids and clear and rich trebles. A mandolin for all occasions and all styles.

    Old Wave A4 - Birdseye Maple

    Out of stock
    Its hard to tell the difference tonally between these two beauties. Both are very loud with strong, well defined and warm bass notes, rich and full mids and clear/precise trebles. Its fantastic to have that wonderful oval hole sound with great definition and projection. The birdseye is gorgeous but so is the Vermont maple... I wouldn't want to have to choose between the two.

  11. Weber Yellowstone A4 Mandocello - A Style - Oval Hole

    Weber Yellowstone A4 Mandocello - A Style - Oval Hole

    Out of stock
    Awesome! This is one of finest mandocellos I have played. The late and much lamented Stan Jay famously described the mandocello sound as being like a deep growl from the jungle. This one is coming from somewhere much deeper, the very bowels of the earth. But unlike some cellos it doesn’t lack clarity and definition, it has it all, and it looks incredible. A mandocello for the connoisseur.

    It features a hand graduated and tuned solid spruce top, flamed maple back and sides, ivoroid bound ebony with black/ivoroid side accent lines headstock veneer, ‘The Weber’ script and MoP white and gold headstock inlay, ebony fretboard and traditional Brekke bridge. It has a 24 3/4” scale length and 1 5/8”nut width, dual action adjustable truss rod, cast Weber tailpiece, Grover tuners and a deluxe hard case.

    This beauty is one of the best snakes I've heard, as loud as an F5 and with the oval hole sound but pumped up with fantastic clarity and separation. The A2Z snakehead is widely regarded as best of the snakeheads for tone but the A4 snakehead has all the pop of an A2Z but with more depth and resonance.

    It is great news that Pava has turned her hand to oval hole mandolins. This is an incredible A4 with the depth and warmth you would expect from Tom Ellis' stable. It also has great volume with fantastic clarity and projection so you get the resonance of an A4 with the power of an A5. It responds equally well to a gentle caress and a 3mm pick with a heavy hand, deep, rich and resonant tones with some oooomph if you need it. Awesome!

    1904 Washburn parlour in excellent condition. Adirondack/Brazilian rosewood, wooden coffin style case.

    The depth and richness of tone of this little beauty is truly remarkable! It's a little clichéd to say how parlour guitars sound like bigger guitars but if you doubt it, come and try this stunner. It has a quality of tone that only a hundred and ten years of Adirondack and Brazilian can produce.

    I have no expertise in this area but will do my best to answer any questions. As far as I can tell it is all original except for the bridge pins.

    There has been a lot of discussion recently about the merits of maple and the widely held misconception that it gives bright tone.

    This beauty from Jimmy proves what a wild misconception it is. I just asked my tech to play it, the first thing he said is that the bass is very strong (I agree), the trebles are very clear and the mids are warm and complex. He is also very impressed by the balance from the lowest note to the highest.

    This 12/15 - twelve frets to the body and a 15 inch lower bout - is another fantastic guitar from Steve. The body join at the twelfth fret gives a very full and rich tone due to the changed position of the bridge and the cutaway gives access all the way up.

    The result is a warm tone with great balance and the superb definition of Adirondack, deep/well defined bass, complex mids and clear, ringing trebles.

    Another absolute stunner from Marc. The first thing that strikes me playing this beauty is the remarkable balance and individual note clarity, from the lowest to the highest note it has incredible definition and projection. Add the warmth and responsiveness of mahogany and you get a very versatile guitar.

    The playability is superb and it responds beautifully to everything from a pick to the lightest fingerstyle.

    There is an Acoustic Magazine review of this guitar here.

    With the 'Manzer Wedge' this feels like an OO sized guitar to play, supremely comfortable and effortless.

    The balance and clarity is the best I've heard, with perfect individual note definition from bottom to top. There is a depth and richness to the tone that defies belief with incredible articulation. There are good reasons why luthiers like Linda have the reputations that they do; this is one of them.

    Its hard to know what to say sometimes when such amazing guitars arrive. I am shocked that Sheldon's work isn't more widely known.

    This is an original and wonderful work of art. I'm am fond of commenting on how great luthiers can combine qualities that otherwise might be considered mutually exclusive. Well Sheldon has pulled it off in achieving the big sound that you might expect from a sitka/rosewood sixteen inch guitar of this quality with remarkable individual note clarity and balance.

    Players in smaller rooms won't need amplification, neither will those who play with a soft touch - finger tips not nails for instance - lack any response or tonal character. Its big and beautiful and soft and mellow, a guitar that will respond to all moods and playing styles. Brilliant!

    There has been a lot of excitement about wenge recently. In these times of traditional tone woods becoming scarce and in some cases tightly restricted and banned, it's great to work with a wood that is plentiful and cheap.

    Some find the look of it to be plain but others love the deep and rich variations of colour that can be seen when looking closely, to be very beautiful. The way Kent has combined it with Leopardwood accents makes it an incredibly beautiful guitar however you look at it.

    Kent says this is the best guitar he has made and by his standards something.. by my standards it has a wonderful full sound, with complex and resonant tones across its very well balanced and defined range.

    Here’s a special offer on a special guitar that has, what some might say, are ‘issues’. We’ve had the guitar in the shop for a while now. During that time it has done its own ‘relic job’ by developing lacquer checking across the whole surface of the Spruce top. The back, sides and neck are unaffected.

    Anyone who knows a bit about the ‘lacquer checking’ that is added to modern custom shop electric guitars will understand what I mean by a ‘relic job’. There is absolutely no adverse effect to the tone or the overall loveliness of the guitar, it sounds wonderful, it’s just not something that you usually find on an expensive handmade acoustic guitar. There's an image of the lacquer checking below.

    The fret ends on the lower side of the neck could do with a little tidying up too though playability is very good as it is.

    There’s not much room left in the saddle for those who like an ultra-low action though the current action is great for fingerstyle.

    We don’t currently have the services of a luthier so we are therefore offering this guitar at £2,995, a massive £4,000 discount! Yes, you can own a seven grand guitar that you might not have been able to afford.

    Feel free to make us a cheeky offer as long as you don’t mind a cheeky response.

    I'm speechless.. well almost. I've heard and seen a lot of great guitars here at TAMCO, and on my travels over the last ten years or so, and this is one of the most beautiful ever.

    I think a lot of players have an ideal sound in their heads for different styles of guitar. This matches my idea of how a Jumbo should sound....perfectly.

    It is big and loud with fantastic balance and focus, the depth and richness of tone is stunning. Nothing washes about causing unwanted harmonics and overtones, it's just great!

    Awesome! When innovation combines with the complete mastery of traditional skills this is what you get. Al is a true master and the tone of this beauty is to die for! OK that's enough exclamation marks...

    It has a very full and open/rich tone with fantastic depth and complexity. The definition and separation are truly remarkable. This is a very intimate and expressive guitar that also responds beautifully to a pick and a bit of digging in.

    Cory says this is his best yet, I agree, that cathedral organ bass I keep talking about is plentiful here.

    If it's a strong bass response and rich and warm mids and clear trebles you are looking for, look no further.

    My first two guitars from Steve sold quickly and I like this one even more. Walnut is a wood that is not popular in some quarters but I've liked every Walnut guitar I've had built.

    It has a very full and luscious tone with warm and rounded basses with great definition. The mids are rich and complex and the trebles fat but clear all the way up. The overall balance is fantastic with great projection and volume. It has plenty of headroom for those with a heavy pick style and the sweetest clear and resonant tone from a light touch with fingers with or without nails.

    Stunning in all departments.
