Clark Fine Hand Crafted Instruments, Logo

Built by Hand in the USA.


At Clark Mandolins, I believe the definition of craftsmanship includes great design, artistry, and execution.  I take great pride in creating each instrument with care and skill to produce mandolins and guitars that are both visually attractive and sound their best.

As a full-time, one-man shop based in Boise, Idaho, I have spent more than 10 years building and repairing mandolins and guitars. Using the finest quality wood, materials and traditional building methods, I strive to build a fine handcrafted instrument that will give the professional musician an instrument with the power, dynamics and tone that they need and want. Additionally, it will give the hobbyist an heirloom quality instrument with the playability needed to inspire their musical development.
