    Re: Thank You, Collings

    I too have been highly impressed with their customer service.
    I bought an MT2-V and was curious about the build. What woods used, type of finish, etc. The customer service rep called me back after...

    I like my mandolin to be both loud and powerful. But with the caveat that it is first of all responsive.
    If it is responsive by nature, innately, it is possible to get a soft but sweet tone. And,...

    Mechanicallazarus:

    I have found the TAD50-1R to be quite good, myself. It allows me to have both a rounded and a pointed tip. Mr. Goins would likely set one up with a speed bevel for you.

    Re: New Fender 1.5mm pick

    So terribly sad.
    I remember seeing him when I was “just a wee lad” while watching SNL with my childhood babysitter. Glad dad and mom stayed out late.
