Red Valley Mandolins are handcrafted in Boise, Idaho with all the care and attention to detail that should go into something as personal as a musical instrument.

James Wilson has been building mandolins and mandolin family instruments since 1996, with the goal of creating instruments of the highest standard in craftsmanship, aesthetic, tonal quality and playability. Whether a seasoned mandolin player or picking up a mandolin for the first time, Red Valley offers a great value in handcrafted instruments. 

Equally important to the instruments themselves are the relationships formed between us here at Red Valley and the people who have chosen our work. For this reason we have tried to showcase and represent the people who actually make the music with what we send out of our shop. We hope you enjoy our new look and site. And if here for the first time, welcome!
