Weber Sage #1 Octave Mandolin

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.

They make some of the finest high quality, handcrafted, instruments available. Their “Weber” instruments are built in the U.S. with solid tone woods. No wood laminates are used. They hand build their instruments the “right way”, with love and attention to detail, ensuring every instrument’s integrity and acoustic personality. Bruce Weber personally graduates the tops and backs of each instrument to maximize tone and volume. He is also the final quality check on each instrument, personally playing and signing each instrument before it leaves their shop!

Today I’m featuring the Weber Sage #1 Octave mandolin that features a bookmatched Sitka top with maple back & sides, the Weber cast tailpiece and a thin matte lacquer finish that does not inhibit the vibrational modes of this vibrant sounding instrument in the least!
