Meeting Mike Marshall
In August of 2014 we met Mike Marshall at the Swanannoa Gathering and quickly recognized a kindred spirit. Mike's artistry on the instrument both as a performer and educator is widely known. He's considered by most as one of the best mandolin players ever. We were thrilled to see how enthusiastic he was about our mandolins. But after about 5 minutes of talking "shop" and details of the mandolins we realized that he has a vast understanding of the instrument with adept interests in mandolin design, construction and sound analysis. For decades, Mike has been experimenting with the mandolin and much like his adventurous approach to music he has never stopped trying out new things - set-up (bridges, strings, nut materials), internal design, neck shapes and other details. He has commissioned many instruments with challenging designs and has amassed quite a collection of unique mandolin and mandolin family instruments. He's not afraid to wield a rasp or file to shape a neck or make a nut. Even his own iconic Lloyd Loar signed F5 that he's played for more than 30 years has undergone many alterations to make it more responsive and play better. There was a synergy to our meeting that we knew was too good to let go of and we stayed in close contact for the next month planning a research session.
