November 10, 2010 | JazzMando welcomes new sponsor Weber Mandolins
Some amazing commerce happening in the former railroad town nestled in the western United States mountain range. The quiet town of Bozeman, Montana is a quiet international hotbed of mandolin hand craftsmanship and innovation. The Sound to Earth company, sprung out of a decades-old tradition of craftsmanship has defied the immutable trend of domestic mass market consumer tastes toward cheap imports, and actually exports into countries known for mass production, China, Vietnam, and Indonesia. There are still customers with taste in high quality, and founders Bruce and Mary Weber have certainly done there share to fill that niche.
We mentioned a few weeks ago a thrilling online cyber shopping experience in our "Design a Weber" article, and since then have put in an order for a lovely personal Gallatin A body, D hole mandola. (ETA build 2/11) It was only fitting the premier company would be a part of the JazzMando sponsorship. Thank them for there support of what we do here on the site.
