My name is Dave Tricker……

and I build Mandolins part time. I’m an Engineer with a lifelong love of music.

I have played the Mandolin since I was 14 and also play various other instruments.

I have performed Bluegrass/Folk music for most of my life.

My aim is to build well-made, good-sounding Mandolins using native and reclaimed woods where possible (see Construction page)
