Clark JM Jazz Mandolin
Tips & Tricks Mel Bay Mandolin Sessions








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."

July 1, 2010 | Austin Clark builder update

We first hooked up with Idaho builder Austin Clark back in 2007 when we reviewed one of his delicious cherry cola-burst two-point mandolins. Fit and finish was so compelling that we later contracted him to build a signature JazzMando instrument, the legendary Clark JM Two-point mandolin, which has now become an integral icon in our JazzMando branding. You can see it prominently on our home page to the left of our site logo.

Austin made some website updates last winter, and we wanted to make sure you take some time to explore some of the mouth-watering eye candy from past builds he's posted. We've had the pleasure of connecting several readers with his craft, and have always enjoyed picking up the phone and checking in with him over the years since.

Here are some samples:
