New A model owner

  1. Kristibob
    Hello, all

    I'm a very new A model owner..I've had my mandolin for about three days. I have a Rover RM50 A model Player Series, in Sunburst..and she's beautiful and practically plays herself, which is a very good thing, as she probably gets pretty annoyed with the way I Until I got my mandolin, I had never so much as held one..I didn't even know how many strings they had! I just knew I loved the music that mandolins make, and decided to give it the old college try. Frankly, I think I'm doing pretty well. I have learned 5 major scales and can play Ash Grove up to speed..and I'm using my "learn the mandolin" book, too,'s another person to add to the list of very happy A model owners.

    ( I am SO happy that we can preview messages....sheesh.)

    .. and here I may need a tutorial on uploading pictures - right side up!

    I got my camera downloaded, got all the crew now back from the repairman, thought I'd post a picture of the stable. Oh, well, looks like I'll need to give that a rest, make some mint jelly instead this afternoon.

    got the picture upload figured out. Been working on Ashoken Farewell & Little Rabbit for an Employee Recognition picnic at work next month. Debating on whether to take the Strad-o-lin or the Mid-Mo. For sure and the Mid-Mo's coming up on a string change either way.

    Well, I guess that's what's nice about only having Minna - no big decisions on which one to, that changes in several more's after midnight here in SC and Minna B. arrives today!....not like the "big" names others have, but a joy to me (I hope)

    Hi this is an old thread, but having just got my Jbovier a5 2013 I had to join a discussion on a models. Absolutely love mine. Beautifully crafted and the sound is woody and velvet. Practicing a lot of Johnny Clegg, Beatles, even some Leonard Cohen. Absolutely stunning.

    Love the playability and the fine setup!

    Now the fun begins.

    Hi Garry Thanks
    It was always me and my Ovation crafter. So now I have two mandolins and they both have a different look and a different voice. I love this group and glad I found it.
    Love my a-model and of course now you are right. Fun to the power of fun equals joy? No wait let me leave the maths to those who are mathematicians?
