I thought I was over scroll fever. Then I had a chance to get this Passernig. I've had it for a couple months now and I'm more impressed every time I play it. It's got a really great voice, loud and so responsive. Just so much fun to play. Audio is recorded with video camera mic, no other processing.

Sounds killer, Don. If you ever get over the scroll fever I'm first on the list!!

Great pickin'.

Nice picking, Don. And while I have not yet been formally diagnosed with scroll fever, I well recognize the familiar symptoms of Passernig flu!

Very nice Don! I've yet to play one in person but the video is impressive. Good job on Southern Flavor as well, one of my favorites.

Problem is there ain't no medication for that. Nice catch.

Avatar fixed.

That's got THE tone!

agreed! tone for days... i believe this mandolin is available, no?

If fixing that avatar means that your Heiden A is now for sale, SOLD!

Sorry, the Heiden's not going anywhere. And the Passernig is no longer available. Believe I'm set now.

Don, glad to see you came to grips :)) with the neck, I drooled over that mandolin and I don't usually have scroll fever, just interested in a Passernig.

Here's how it sounded today.

Don let me get my hands on this one at a recent gathering and it is a killer instrument.

A little more Monroe.

Between the Passernig and my Heiden A5, I haven't experienced MAS for a couple months now. Weird.

I made a short demo of #42 today. I haven't played much mandolin lately so forgive my fat fingers. This one is from 2007 and is sounding really good after a recent fret dressing.
