    Re: Instruments, Cost & the Placebo Effect

    When I first visited this thread, the text that read "First listen to the Dudenbostel" went to the video of him playing the Loar, and vice versa. Seems fixed now.

    Re: Instruments, Cost & the Placebo Effect

    If you are happy with how your mandolin sounds just learn how to play it.

    When you hear a mandolin that knocks your socks off, then you are ready to upgrade. Before that IMO its wasted money....

    Re: Red Spruce Tops

    Don't worry about the wood so much. If it sounds good to you, it is! Try a bunch, find what you like, get it, then play the heck out if it!

    I like Dawgs when I have to practice but keep things quiet, but I prefer a point in my pick. I have been using ProPlecs but a recent lesson has slightly changed the angle I attack the strings and for...
