Don't yell. I like the sound. I've been thinking of getting one for a while, and then I had some unexpected expenses and couldn't justify it. I got to try out someone's banjo mandolin at clearwater and it was amazing (1920s, maker started with a W, smaller head like a banjolele...anyone know this one?). I'm starting to look again. I might like to get one this summer if I can find a reasonable one (reasonable being under $500 for me). Who has played some and has an opinion? I've been checking out Elderly, Mandolin Bros. here and ebay, so I'm getting some ideas, but I could use your feedback.
