Hand-crafted mandolins made in Lyttelton, New Zealand.


Simpson Mandolins are unique, bespoke instruments


I believe that to make beautiful instruments you need to start local. Simpson Mandolins are made from sustainably sourced, local timbers wherever possible. From my base in Lyttelton, New Zealand I work with local builders and arborists to source and repurpose timbers that have a story – from salvaged New Zealand natives rimu and kauri, to one-off pieces of maple and yew.
