This was my second time working with Bramley apple and it is fair to say it’s definitely growing on me.  For this build I was asked if it was possible to make a mandolin that reflects where the client is living currently in rural Oxfordshire, what better excuse to use this beautiful native species. Softer than some fruit woods the Bramley helps take the edge off some of the mandolins sharper tones .

I'm going to endeavor to get some more sound samples of instruments I build, so watch this space!
