    Re: Help with video conferencing

    To be clear, we are not wanting to play together, only to perform for each other. We took yesterday off to regroup. Zoom works great for spoken word but itís horrible for playing anything. Very high...

    Re: Northfield F5S On the Way

    Northfield has done a fabulous job with aesthetics on the F5S. It just looks classier than an MF or an F9 for thousands less. Only one thing bothers me, and it’s directly related to cost. The backs...

    Re: NOT an essential service?!

    I have played both. I have quit commenting on Girouard mandolins. I have played a few Pava and they all have a wonderful clarity, nice resonance and Iíd be happy to own one. Collings is a brighter...

    If it were the host paying for a platform everyone could use, that would be fine, but I cant see a dozen people doing that. We bought the venue we use $1500 worth of QSC speakers, a mixer, new mic...

    Re: Used Mandolin with Binding Separation

    Binding generally comes loose looking at the top from the front. I agree with those who suggest back issues. Also, if you want to sell it, a more known builder like Ratliff, Silverangel, or a Weber...

    Re: Northfield Calhoun

    I played one back to back with a Waterloo. The Waterloo was better, but not nearly twice the cost better. We live in a great time of affordable instruments.

    Re: poor quality or MAS?

    EVERY inexpensive mandolin needs a setup. The cheaper the mandolin, the more it needs one. A professional would charge at least $50. So Rob Meldrum is the way to go. But I’d buy an Eastman 300 series...

    Re: NOT an essential service?!

    What part of social distancing do you guys not understand? Does it only apply to everyone else, or only if it isn’t inconvenient to you? When it shows up in your area, it’s too late.

    Even those of us with a modest amount of experience, four years in my case, and who live in relative mandolin heaven, don't have access to very many brands, particularly one man shops. We each can...

    That truly sucks. You should at least be able to do a drive by, and have them throw it into your trunk. Perhaps they could mail it to you.

    Stock up on flour. That way you can bake bread. Flour is in short supply here.
    Stock up on eggs.
    Stock up on your favorite libation.
    Make sure you have extra strings.
