Welcome to Dunn Mandolins
Mandolins are my passion. I build them from my home workshop in Brisbane, Queensland, using the highest quality imported tonewoods and hardware. Being a one person workshop, with a dedication to careful construction, I do not produce mandolins for the sake of churning them out in great numbers. My goal is to produce high quality instruments with incredible tone and clarity at an affordable price.
Quality cannot be sacrificed by shortcuts. I have trained under Roger Siminoff in California, USA, and continue everyday to learn more about the fascinating and complex art of mandolin luthierie and acoustics.
Please take the time to have a look at the Standard Models, Custom Work and Repairs pages and do not hesitate to contact me for further information or just to chat about all things bluegrass and mandolins.

Click on the link adjacent to view Josh Goforth, USA Fiddle champion (and pretty handy mandolin player!) playing my latest F5 mandolin at the 2019 Australian Bluegrass Conference in Maleny. You will hear a song written by Brisbane's Mark Nahuysen called "Spider Eyes" played by Mark, Peter Nahuysen, Bruce Packard (all from Australia) , Josh Goforth and Bennett Sullivan (from USA).
The F5 mandolin in the video is still available for sale, so contact me.
