Sound To Earth is built on the reputations and experience of their accomplished luthiers and acoustic design engineer. These individuals are experienced in their specialties, coming from diverse backgrounds with expertise in a wide range of skills. Their luthiers have chosen to build instruments because they love the artistic and aesthetic expression provided in luthiery.
After his long tenure with Gibson as their head mandolin luthier, Bruce Weber went on to found the Sound to Earth company. This small shop hand crafts premium mandolins under the Weber Mandolin banner in beautiful Montana and has become one of the most successful American mandolin shop in the world!
Today we are featuring the two point Bighorn Mandolin from Weber. Right away this piece caught my eye with its highly flamed maple sides, back and neck which are augmented by the translucent walnut finish. The great vintage vibe of the Bighorn is just the start. Some of the high quality features include: hand graduated and tuned solid spruce top, hand scalloped spruce top bars, gold hardware and a traditional Brekke bridge.
