Welcome to Weber

Bruce Weber started this business to be independent while doing what he loves, and provide work and a good living for other like-minded people.

As a Christian, Bruce tries to run his shop under Biblical principles. One that we are all familiar with is the golden rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Customer Service is paramount at Weber.

All at Weber realize that a high-end, heirloom quality instrument is a major investment for most people. Thus, our goal is to provide you with the best hand-built acoustic guitars and mandolins in the world. You can be assured of not only excellence in quality, but reasonable delivery times and the best price.

Weber Fine Acoustic Instruments traces it’s origins to Flatiron Mandolin and Banjo Company in Bozeman, Montana. Several of us also started around 1987 when Flatiron become part of Gibson Guitar. The ‘Montana Era’ of Gibson/Flatiron is remembered for the consistent, high quality of the instruments that were built here.

In 1996, Gibson decided to move Flatiron to Nashville. Paula Lewis, who many of you know for her years of excellent mandolin customer service and sparkling laugh, expresses it the best. “None of us were willing to move. We live in Montana because we like the scenic beauty of the mountains, the fresh air, and the people who live here. Bruce Weber, the general manager and head luthier of the Gibson/Flatiron Division found Sound To Earth, Ltd. so that we could continue to build the instruments that we love in the midst of the country we love.”

In March of 1997 Bruce Weber, Joe Schneider, Bob McMurray, Steve Birch and Paula Lewis moved into the shop at Bruce’s house excited to build acoustic instruments their way. They were soon joined by Helen Beausoleil and Vern Brekke and others who had worked with us over the years.

With orders coming in and an expanding line of mandolin family instruments Bruce moved the shop into Belgrade, Montana in 1998. It was a time of enormous creativity and around 20 different models of Mandolins were established with a Mandola, Octave and Mandocello in each model. These models cover the entire range of music genres through instrument design. Weber acoustic instruments cover many price ranges from affordability by offering models that are ‘stripped down’ to the basics to highly ornamental instruments with special woods- all offering the same detail in building and tonal excellence. There is always room at Weber for new ideas, while keeping the beauty and integrity of the traditional.
