Cardinal Instruments
Sam Evans

Cardinal builds instruments for those that understand the value being unique. Through select woods, custom hardware, pickups wound in-house, and attention to the smallest of details, a player is getting an instrument that is not only unique – but also a versatile and expressive tool that works perfectly with the musician.


“I started this company with a simple idea: be unique. I wanted to stand out as a builder who offered a player something they couldn’t get elsewhere. Whether it was a unique shape, a custom wound pickup, a piece of hardware, or a perfect piece of wood mated to a particular scale length – I wanted to offer it. There is so much more to be discovered in the world of stringed instruments, and for musicians, that is good news indeed.”
