I will start off by saying I love my Weber Mandolins! I own five of them. I love the quality of their craftsmanship, their tone, and their volume. I started my collection in 2005 with a Bitteroot F style. From there I have added a 2011 Yellowstone Vintage A style, a 2012 Black Ice , a 2014 Custom Bighorn, and finally a 2015 Fern .
Both the Bighorn and the Fern were made after Weber’s move to Bend, Oregon. I am happy to report the quality of the mandolins made after the move to Bend are the same excellent quality as my earlier mandolins that were made in Montana.
My last mandolin the Fern,
was purchased from Kyle and I could not be happier with the quality and the set up that Kyle completed on this mandolin. I have purchased my other Weber mandolins from other dealers and I can tell you they are no match for Kyle’s customer care. Kyle stands by his work and follows up to make sure everything is right. These days this type of customer care is hard to find!
My collection is now complete but if you are looking for a quality mandolin I highly recommend Weber Mandolins! I also highly recommend Kyle at the Mando Shop for his outstanding customer care, honesty, and his skills as a first class luthier!

Hay Monica, If you don’t mind me asking, out of all your Weber mandolins is there a big difference between them, particularly the fern. I know all manufacture have high and low end products but is the price difference between lets say the Yellowstone and the fern worth it? Recently purchasing my first weber, a custom rawhide, and as you may understand I’m hooked and considering a second purchase but I am undecided on the brand and make I want. any advice.
thanks: Dan Gwinn
