Darrell Webb plays an Iwamoto mandolin and a Hook Mandolin. Both mandolins are finely crafted artisan mandolins. Takeshi Iwamoto and Chris Shelton of Hook Mandolins custom made each instrument to fit Darrell’s preferences and style. Darrell met Takeshi at Bill Monroe Music Park in Bean Blossom, IN. Takeshi built Darrell’s instrument in Japan and several other instruments for Acoustic World. Chris Shelton lives in North Carolina and crafts fine instruments under the Hook label.
Darrell’s first mandolin was built by John Hutto who passed away in 2004. He was from Augusta, Georgia but was living in Tennessee at the time of his death. Our best research shows he built around 150 mandolins in his lifetime. The Hutto Mandolin is one of the most sought out instruments in all of traditional bluegrass and roots music.
Darrell Webb plays a Martin Guitar. His guitar was featured his “Dream Big” 20-year celebration album.
