The Legendary Dr. Ralph Stanley Endorses Hill Mandolins

Dr. Ralph Stanley admires the crafstmanship of Nathan Stanley’s mandolin, one of the first Stanley Tones produced by Hill Mandolins




Nothing moves me more than hearing the fine sounds of a good instrument in the hands of a musician. My grandson, Nathan, proudly plays one of the first Stanley Tones produced by Hill Mandolins. I like to think we are spreading our traditions from our hills to the rest of the world. We’re glad folks are listening!

—The Legendary Dr. Ralph Stanley
