Wildwood Instruments has been busy building a Jarrah kitchen of late. A work in progress pictured here on the right.

As the winter months set in, a bit of R&D (research and development) is planned. An all new, bigger and better Bodhran is on its way. A deeper shell with twice the number of pins and a single cross bar to enable easier hand movement whilst playing. Thanks to the feedback of customers over the past months, these improvements are on the way.

Another model of mandolin is on the drawing board, too. Improving on the original model, this one will have curved points on the upper bout (have to wait and see!), a WildDesign motif on the face, and a pick-up. Pics will be posted when the prototype is completed. Until then, back orders of mandolins are being built… they are on their way, I promise!
