Hyde Made is the collaboration between luthier Ron Hyde and his two sons. Based out of Chesaw, Washington, he has been building instruments for over 40 years. He holds a degree in Industrial Design from the University of Cincinnati, and studied to be a luthier under Clyde Edwards at the Baldwin Piano Company. Ron worked on various projects, including helping to develop the early forms of electric classical guitars. Ron's instruments feature innovative updates to the traditional forms of mandolins, guitars, and resonator instruments. He uses reclaimed wood, old road signs, and even moonshine shellac on each unique musical instrument. His resonator mandolins are widely sought for their crisp sound and eye catching shape.
