October 19, 2010 | Weber Gallatin F Style Mandola
Here's an intriguing find at one of our friend's music store in Tempe, AZ. We've been in Jeff Looker's fretted instrument paradise, Acoustic Music Vibes a couple times in the past year while on business out of the Phoenix airport. It's a fairly convenient drive, less than a half hour if you know where you're going and the traffic's not bad. Some real treasures there, and we always have a hard time leaving without taking something back.
The allure of the no-binding look of the Weber Gallatin mandola really grabs our eye. If it's the same one we tried last spring, its full of warm, vibrant tone, and easy to play. With it's simple, understated looks, the Weber Gallatin line is a great compromise in aesthetics and economy. Anyone wanting quality auxiliary instrument would do well to own this.
