View Full Version : LM 500vs "vs" RM 75
Has anyone played both of these mandolins
how do they compare?
The Mandolin Store
The Loar looks better to the eye but the RM75 sounds better to the ears - no comparison in sound in my humble opinion. The RM75's once set up with bone nuts, have a surprising good tone for the money.
I am thinking of buying one of these in the near future. Or if I can come up with enough money maybe the LM 600 vs.
I agree with the Mandolin Store. I own a RM75 and had a set up, frets dressed and nut replaced with bone all for under $100.00. The mando is a joy to play and have had good comments about it's sound (not my playing):)
I really like the LM 600 vs but the price on the Rover is so much better.
I wonder if the LM 600 is sound good enough to justify the extra money?
