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."

April 25, 2012 | Spotlight: Sorensen "Sprite" mandolin


One of our favorite activities here is introducing new and upcoming builders to the world. Sure there are selfish reasons, passing around exciting instruments under the guise of "work and research," but there's also an altruistic element--connecting you the reader with some very talented, but maybe lesser known craftsman. Our latest entry is from southern California, Steve Sorensen, who already has a magnificent head start on a promising career with wood and strings.

We've had a week with a delightful asymmetrical 2-point mandolin, his signature "Sprite" model. Street priced at well under $3K, this is a builder you'll want to keep an eye on.

He's got some great stuff going on!
