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."

July 21, 2013 | Builders for the 21st Century

Blueburst Sorensen Sprite JM

We like to prime the pump of innovation when it comes to mandolin design and craftsmanship. Our "Builders for the 21st Century" page offers hand on reviews of world premier woodsmiths that have either tweaked classic designs or traveled completely new directions. To get a review, we require a two week trial to photograph and put the instrument through its paces, and in the last ten years, we've had some incredible instruments through the lab.

Some of these did not make it back and became a permanent part of the JazzMando studio.

Take some time to check out some builders you may not be aware of.
