  6. Podcast 211: Tom Ellis (Ellis Mandolins, Precision Pearl, Inc.) | Fretboard Journal

    Austin, Texas-based Tom Ellis is widely considered to be one of the finest mandolin makers working today. On this week’s podcast, we chat with Tom about his unique journey into the world of fretted instruments (from surfboard shaper to luthier) and about the fateful day in 1977 he showed Ricky Skaggs his recently-completed second mandolin. Tom also comically describes the five year period when he gave Bill Collings some shop space in the early ’80s, talks about his workflow and how he employs CNCs to help him out, and tells us about the inlay work he does for other instrument makers via his company Precision Pearl, Inc.

    This episode is brought to you by Lee Valley and Retrofret.

  7. Mandolin virtuoso Avi Avital - Conversations - ABC Radio

    Avi is revolutionising the image of traditional folk instrument, the mandolin (R)

    Avi grew up in Be’er Sheva in Israel, where he learned mandolin from a violinist.

    Not until he went to Italy to study at the Cesare Pollini Conservatory of Music in Padua, did he play music written specifically for his instrument.

    Today his style sits somewhere between the traditional mandolin technique he was taught in Italy, and his own.

    Avi now lives in Berlin and performs all over the world, from New York’s Carnegie Hall, to the Forbidden City in Beijing.

    His renditions of Baroque and folk music, in concert and recordings, have been described as ‘electric’, and have seen his acclaim, and touring schedule, grow dramatically.

    In a first for a mandolinist, Avi was nominated for a Best Instrumental Soloist Grammy in 2010.
