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."

October 20, 2012 | In a bind(ing) at Weber.

We mentioned the incredible fun you can have designing your own imaginary custom Weber mandolin family instrument on their website. We enjoyed personaliing several fantasy instruments, finish, binding, overlays, etc. and ultimately ended up with a delicious Gallatin D-hole mandola for real.

Play! Build your own Weber

The crew just posted some delicious sound hole options on their Facebook page that show some of the variety in soundhole binding. Enjoy!
