I had to smile while reading Ted's JM11 classified this morning. Pretty good audio imagery Ted. Unfortunately my early morning unbridled mind ask's why use words to describe a sound?
Same mandolin, same demo techniques and tune (possibly even some smacking demonstrations ), same pick and performer, same play in time. A lot of cost and up down Leroy but a true back to back comparison of our most beloved strings unaided by owner/seller verbage. Hmmmmm
