Darrell Webb Launches Signature Mandolin Line

PRESCRIPTION BLUEGRASS IMAGE- DARRELL WEBBOne of the benchmarks of an artist's success is when a musical instrument manufacturer decides the artist has enough popularity that their signature on an instrument will be a sought after commodity.

Darrell Webb announced on Friday this week that Hook Mandolins, handmade by Chris Shelton, will be licensed to manufacture and sell the Darrel Webb Signature F-Style mandolin.

Darrell describes the mandolin's unique features which include his signature on the body rather than on the cover plate over the truss-rod adjustment on the headstock where most instrument makers put the artist's signature.

The Darrell Webb signature model Hook mandolin retails for $3500.00 and are available from Hookmandolins.com
