little story about Gregg!
~ told by Darrell Jennings
met him backstage where a mutual friend was bringing some mandolins
for Gregg to check out.
He'd decided he wanted one, and so we put together two choices,
a really nice vintage Gibson, and a beautiful newish mandolin
made by Kent Carlos Everett.
Gregg loved the Everett and asked what it would cost. My friend
"Your music has meant a lot to me, it's a gift." Gregg
"No way man, this is too nice an instrument, I need to
pay you for it".
My friend asked him if he had a dollar....Gregg grinned and
"Yeah, I have a dollar.
... been carrying it around for years".
He pulled a silver dollar out of his pocket and handed it
to my friend. Deal done.
To me it was the perfect Gregg Allman moment.
I was honored to be there to see it happen. "
Shes about as perfect as I could have ever hoped for.
I love the tone, the resonance, the intonation, the feel. It
took about an hour playing her before I didnt want to
play the wimpy necked mandos I already own. I can
hardly wait to hear what shell sound like in a couple
of years when she gets seasoned.
Thanks for your masterful work. What a beautiful instrument
I can say is this thing is a monster for open chords. The sustain is absolutely
and the volume is outstanding. There is a definite mid range voice
that I really like.
The D strings have a life all their own that brings the
entire instrument into a new realm. I've never been a fan of the sharp,
sound of some mandolins that are all highs and no mid or bass.
what I like to hear.
keep looking at this mandolin and finding all the subtle and elegant
We're also impressed with the 3D effect and depth of the figure in the back wood.
It seems to change from every angle. The finger board extension and the
head where the zebra wood is are real knockouts. We both agree that
is right on the money. My other mandolin has the red
highlights in the 3 color
burst where this one is more dark brown to
golden. It's more than I could
have asked for. It's a keeper.
so much for a real gem. I appreciate your artistry and the
attention to detail,
both visually and sonically. I can't express how
thrilled I am with this beautiful
and unique mandolin. I may never be a
great or even good mandolinist, but
I have another instrument to help me
be the best I can be.
the E5 mandolin. WOW. We all had the Loar thing beat into us.

(or has in his care) Mr. Loar's personal F5 w/ a virzi plate.
This Everett sounds like it. I've never
heard any other mandolins that sounds like these two.
...I have been playing my new E4 for a couple of weeks now ,
I have to say it is (by far) my favorite mandolin.

Once word gets out about this, you are going to be swamped.
I hope that is a good thing.
