    That mandolin won't have far to go to its new home because I only live about 70 miles away

    The old ones were killer! Something happened later on and they became just a typical speaker, too heavy in the bass and treble but a set of vintage Klips are something else altogether. I still prefer the British style of loudspeaker but that's mostly because of the type of music I listen to.

    Have you got an old Empire turntable to go with those?

    Typical cafe thread creep for changing topics. I think Shifting Sands of Time is in his repertoire. That mandolin looks very good. I'm looking forward to the road test review.

    The one detail I notice that may have been done to keep costs down is that the neck to body join is flat rather than rounded. Probably makes fitting it way easier.

    Distressed? I'm walking on pins and needles to make sure I don't distress it. As for the maker, it has more of a Weber sound than a Gibson (personal observation). AS for the turntable, I had to buy a decent BO a few years ago when my last table died from lack of use.

    Thanks for the review Mike. I'm reading with great interest.

    This thread is incomplete without someone asking for a sound clip ... so, do you have any?

    Dennis has (had) sound clips of this mandolin on the The Mandolin Store website. I'll see if I can rig up something to record something, it's not something I usually do, as odd as that sounds.

    I dug out a Zoom H2 that I bought several years ago, put on a shelf and never used.... I'll see if I can get it going and upload a sound file. Sometimes I'm amazed at what I have that I don't remember having.

    Sorry for the delay, real life got in my way. That and the fact that I wasn't smart enough to sit down and read the H2 manual and I had no software installed on my new PC to convert a WAV to an MP3. Here it is.

    Yup, sadly I have to send this one home, otherwise I'd probably have to anger my wife by buying it.

    You can't win it if you ain't in it.

    If you entered your chance is as good as anyone elses.

    Thanks for the sound clip Mike.

    It's appreciated, and says something about the mandolin if it impressed you enough to work through the hassle ... this mandolin is worth hearing, in your opinion. No small compliment.
