Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

June 23, 2010 | A river runs through it. The latest from Old Wave Mandolins

We are crazy about the work of New Mexico builder, Bill Bussmann of Old Wave Mandolins, and this most recent batch of dazzling instruments are examples why. This man builds more toys than Santa's elves, and exponentially more delightful in the hands of his customers.

We even have two reviews on the site, one a standard Old Wave Dola, and the other our magnificent signature Solocomp JM alto guitar jazz mandola. The latter retains bragging rights for being the longest duration in the JazzMando arsenal. You can hear its magnficient capacity in the embedded video in our builders review.
