I really fell in love with the sound of the mandolin when I heard the David Grisman Quintet. I built my first Mandolin at Pattison Stringed Instruments in 1980, out of personal curiosity and subsequently by request. I have built ‘A’ style and ‘F’ style as well as flat top with carved back mandos but am drawn to the clean shape of an ‘A’ style and the sweet sound they produce.
My studio of stringed instruments has 30 plus years of history in the creating and building…not only the status quo….but, pieces that are unique and one of a kind. It is my attention to the fine details that complete the artistic craftsmanship and upon completion allow these pieces to be timeless and in some cases, have become family heirlooms.
All of my instruments are individually hand crafted by me from designing, selecting all the materials, hand shaping the parts, inlaying and applying the finishes.
