c.1909 Weymann Mando-Lute  /  OHSC

This fascinating instrument was first introduced in 1909 by the Weymann & Son company of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Back in the early 20th century, the Weymann Mando-Lute was a popular choice among musicians across a variety of genres, including classical, folk, and popular music. Today, the Mando-Lute is considered a rare and unique instrument that is highly sought after by collectors and musicians alike. 

One of the unique features of the Weymann Mando-Lute was the use of a lightweight, arched back made of laminated spruce and mahogany. This innovative construction method helped to give the Mando-Lute a bright, clear tone and a rich sustain. Many people enjoy these instruments for playing Celtic music.

This Weymann Mando-Lute is in great shape for it’s age, with expected wear but certainly not abused. There are a couple of repaired cracking in the top, but otherwise there is no notable damage or major repair. Original hard case included.
