    I bought a pack from Banjo Ben a while back. David Benedict got me into them. I use it as a back up or for a change of pace. Nice feel!

    Re: Frank Wakefield

    I agree with the suggestion of John Reischman, who is more eclectic, but needs to be heard along with the others mentioned above. He plays a variety of styles and is also a composer of mandolin...

    Re: Hello, I am new here

    Zeek, Be sure to check out Howard Morris' mandolins. A used A style, fully carved domestic instrument can be had for under $1,000. They sound absolutely wonderful and play easily, as well.
