Here's the story:
He plays the duck about 4 min into the second part. It sounds wonderful!
No offend intended. It's just that it's the first time I've heard anyone on this forum say that Thile and Marshall play with an awful tone. You are of course entitled to your opinion, but if those...
As a Norwegian, my question is: Troll?
I have a late forties Gibson A40, and it's a very dark sounding instrument, maybe due to the mahogany. These are relatively affordable.
Great recordings, beautifully shot. And what an amazing mandolin player JR is! And, yes, the mandolin ain't half bad either...Thanks for posting!
We're talking single malt AND mandolins.
The British music magazine "Uncut" had a big feature article about Stephen Stills in their latest edition, and I found it to be a good read and very interesting, but I must admit that my belief in...
I traded my 2003 A9 and kept my 1949 A40. To me it just sounded better. Most of sound is in the top.
Amazing it is. And don't trust too much upon my evaluation of the instrument. Some sources claim that these guys made fine instrument, but that the instruments condition today (generally) doesn't...
I'm in no way an expert here, but I have a feeling that these aren't worth a lot. But, of course, as you stated, it's worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it. Most of their guitars that still...

I've never had anything to complain about with Martin's customer service.

The name is Halden Music Industry. Halden is a small town close to the Swedish border. Two brothers (Eugen and Arne Olsen) had the workshop, making guitars, mandolins and toys(!) They later made a...
It looks a lot like the mandolins made by "Halden" in the link I provided in the other thread.
Here's a link to a page about Norwegian guitar and mandolin makers now and before. Alas, the page is in Norwegian, but you will find the links to the workshops...
Seems like great bang for the buck.Or: Great bang, period.
I owned a 2003 A9 for some years, and from your pictures yours looks almost identical. Serial nr looks fine too. There are, however, folks with more knowledge than me on the forum, but I feel fairly...
Looks like the real deal to me.
You can start with posting pictures of your mandolin.
I would like to meet ALL members of this community. Maybe start with the ones owning a Loar. Then maybe visit the ones owning Ferns. BTW, this is THE best meeting place on the whole of Internet....
Five greats. And I must say: The TONE of that girl...
