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."

January 27, 2011 | New from Mowry Strings

We've reviewed instruments from the magic workbench of Bend Oregon woodsmith, Andrew Mowry before, but his latest batch of completed instruments has us tongue tied. If these sound as good as they look, and we have no reason to expect otherwise, these are going to make some eager mandolinsts very happy. We're particularly fond of the matching mandolin/mandola siblings in the fist picture.

We're perpetually impressed with the Andrew's headstocks. Each is unique, but still holds the Mowry signature aesthetic essence.


Stunning craftsmanship!
