Weber

Hand made mandolins from £1300
Weber mandolins have a pedigree unrivaled in mandolin making. Bruce Weber and his fellow luthiers worked at the Flatiron factory in Montana, which had been bought out by Gibson. Bruce was in charge of production making Flatiron and Gibson mandolins. When Gibson moved mandolin production to Nashville they decided to stay in Montana and set up Weber mandolins. From faithful reproductions of classic instruments to new ideas, from mandolin to mandocello the range is unrivalled. Customer service is legendary as is the finish and tone of their instruments.

Each mandolin spends 8 to 12 hours being hand finished after being hand built, the only machinery here is doing the jobs that machines do best, removing excess wood, cutting fretboards and the like. I've never met such a nice and dedicated bunch of folk, watching them work is inspiring. I promise you that they are all as dedicated to fine mandolins as you and me. Weber are now in Bend Oregon. I am delighted to be the only UK dealer for these fine mandolins and mandolin family instruments.

  1. Weber Gallatin F4 Mandolin - F Style - Oval Hole - Natural

    The last one! The Gallatin range is no longer available in the natural finish.

    I first played a Gallatin in the States in the mid nineteen nineties and remember it still. This is an example of where every cent has gone into the sound. With no bindings and satin varnish it looks great.

    It has a solid hand carved spruce top, solid hand carved maple back and sides, solid cast tailpiece and Brekke traditional bridge. The basic spec of course does not affect the sound. It plays beautifully with a very warm and full tone with deep and well defined bass notes, rich mids and clear trebles.

    With custom hardshell case.

    I have been waiting a long time to get one of these beauties in. It was well worth the wait. It has a very rich and full tone with wonderful full bass notes, sweet and warm mids and clear trebles with plenty of volume and remarkable balance from the lowest to the highest notes.

    To use yet again one of my favourite clichés it sounds as good as it looks.

    Only 6 made. Signed by Bruce Weber, a rarity and collectors item!

    Weber are no longer using the varnish finish. This beauty is made by the master himself Bruce Weber and signed on the label. It is also worth noting that Weber will not be making any mandolins until at least 2023!

    Weber's top of the range F5, Adirondack/red spruce top, spirit varnish finish, beautiful fern headstock inlay, spectacular flamed maple back and sides, radiussed fretboard, tone bar braced and a Weber hard case.

    It has lovely dark bass and warm middles with clear trebles, a very full and rich tone with great playability and fantastic response from the lightest touch to a heavy pick. Plenty of cut and chop for bluegrass players and others wanting to be heard with depth and complexity making it great for anything from folk to classical. A superb all-round mandolin.
