|Dave Hynds Mandolin Luthier:
S W France
Hello, welcome to my site. I now live/work, repairing mandolins and related instruments, in S. W. France. I decided at the outset to record my passion pictorially for the benefit of others with similar interests. I hope you will find my site useful.
|I sell restored mandolins and some other instruments, I undertake private mandolin repairs, and also occasionally buy broken instruments. I also build new instruments in the mandolin family, plus a few others, to order.|
