    Re: Distressed Mandolin and Regular Playing

    I do have an old Les Paul, that I got for cheap that had been beat to hell. It was my favorite for a long time, but one I've had since new has probably 2% of the wear this one does. So I do feel...

    Re: Distressed Mandolin and Regular Playing

    No not opposed I think it looks cool. But I've never pulled it off naturally! I do baby my instruments, but they do get played a lot and there is sweat.

    Re: Humidity control, ay ay ay

    I use a humidifier in winter and dehumidifier in summer here where humidity swings from less than 20% in winter to over 70% sometimes in summer. Keep it between 45- 50 percent now. Never had an issue...

    Re: 2022 Eastman Line

    I got to try out an MD814 and I have to say I was really impressed. It was a little quieter than my flat top, but the notes were bell like and had amazing sustain.

    It played super easy, and didn't...

    Re: 2022 Eastman Line

    Yeah, the 1-3/32 seemed a bit tight for me too. Haven't gotten my hands on one yet though. My mandolin nut is a bit bigger, but coming from guitar, I had asked for a wider nut. Maybe 1-3/32 is...

  15. Re: Moving between Irish and bluegrass fiddle tunes

    If they are super traditionalists, you may make them cringe. But if your up for it, learn the Monaghan Jig and O'Farrell's Welcome to Limerick. ��

  18. Re: Best Place to Sell aside From Classifieds

  19. Best Place to Sell aside From Classifieds

    Any thoughts on best place to sell an instrument aside from classifieds? I'd be up to taking a trip to Nasheville or Elderly.

    Possibly aiming to sell an octave and a tenor banjo.
