Thread: Red Maple Violin Shop Mandolins

  1. #1

    Default Red Maple Violin Shop Mandolins

    Hello everyone,

    Longtime lurker and finally felt I should make an actual account. I recently acquired two handmade mandolins from my great aunt. The shop that made them was called Red Maple Violin Shop and located in Pekin, Indiana. The owner/luthier, Larry Hopkins, has unfortunately passed away in the last few years. I have attached a picture of them in their case. Hopefully someone here knows at least a little something about them. I can also take better/more in-depth photos if possible.

    EDIT:
    I found an archived version of the old website that gives a little more information on them: https://web.archive.org/web/20100409...dex.php?type=4

    Here's an older MC thread on Larry Hopkins, but there isn't much there: https://www.mandolincafe.com/forum/t...kins-mandolins

    There is a little bit of information here: https://traditionalarts.indiana.edu/...lders-2008.pdf
