Pava Mandolins

Pava Mandolins

Pava decided to make a slight career change after living in the U.S. for a few years. Gaining employment at Collings Guitars she was first introduced to the Luthiery world. She began in the finish and sanding department. Collings quickly noticed Pava’s skill and promoted her to the mandolin department where she built F-5 models.

In 2003 Pava came to work for Tom Ellis at Precision Pearl Inc. As an associate of Precision Pearl Inc. her duties included all aspects of the inlay process. Pava’s talent was best reflected in her hand inlay work.

Involved from the start, it was Pava’s skill that helped Tom to resurge the Ellis Mandolin brand in 2005. She is responsible for much of the hand crafting that goes into an Ellis Mandolin. Pava does binding, gluing and sanding. She also does repair work for Precision Pearl Inc. and Ellis Mandolins.

Early in 2012 Tom decided it was time Pava took the skills that she has collectively gathered through her experience. Using the same techniques that have made Ellis Mandolins one of the most sought after instruments on the market Pava is now producing her own.

    This beauty has absolutely incredible tone! Its one of the best sounding mandolins I've ever played. It has remarkable volume and achieves that rare feat of having fantastic depth and resonance at the same time as clarity and cut (bluegrass players please note, the chop is outstanding).

    No question here of what styles of playing it is suitable for, it will do everything from quiet and gentle to loud and aggressive.
