    Re: Lifting bridge on a cheap acoustic guitar

    Lifting bridge on a cheap acoustic guitar

    Hi guys,

    I realise that this is the Mandolin Cafe, not the Guitar Cafe! However, I'm guessing that most of the builders and repairers here are also experiencing in building/repairing guitars?

    Re: Kentucky KM900 strings

    I remember being given a set of 10's to try out a number of years ago. Needed a string change on my F-style mandolin, so I gave the 10's ago. There was an immediate, and very audible, loss of...

    Re: Kentucky KM900 strings

    As bradeasley has pointed out, the KM900 should easily handle 11's (Eg J74's). Which strings are on there at the moment? If, by light, you mean 10's, then you'll notice a significant increase in...

    Re: Two new Hlavaty F5 mandolins

    They are, indeed, made in Slovakia. I've never bought an instrument from Peter Hlavaty, but I did buy one of his yoke-style guitar capos after reading about them on the Martin forums. It's a...

    Re: Two new Hlavaty F5 mandolins

    They look and sound very nice. Nice playing too!

    I notice that one has a long fretboard extension, and the other is shorter. Also the tailpieces are different on both.

    Just out of interest - who did the fitting work for you? Or did you do it yourself?

    Hi Brad,

    Re: Octave mandolin less-expensive choices

    My youngest son bought a Trinity College last year, and it’s a very nice Octave mandolin. We also tried a Gold Tone but were both very underwhelmed with it.

    Re: Beginner mandolin U.K - Ozark vs The Loar

    The 305 is streets ahead of the Ozark and, in my personal experience, better than any The Loar I’ve tried too. You have chosen wisely!

    Enjoy the journey.

    Those A5 Specials do look amazing. Also, totally concur about Northfield quality - I've played several and all of them have been great. I've had my F5S for almost 6 years now.

    Not played either as a mandola. However, I played a Trinity College and Gold Tone octave mandolin last year, when shopping with my son for an OM. The Trinity College was way better - deeper sound,...
