    Re: Octave Mandolin Strings

    I have happily played TI’s on a flattop (Mittel) and an archtop / resonator (Stark), and willingly spent the ~$40 for the privilege. I don’t see me spending $100 just so I can toss the C strings when...

    Re: NMD Pomeroy Oval

    Expect to hear from Mike Black’s attorney. :))

    Re: $1000 Budget

    It was more fun when your budget was $1500. ;)

    If I was interested in playing bluegrass, and had $1K to spend on an F5, I’d be looking for a Kentucky KM1000 like this one:
