    Re: NMD Sawchyn Hobo Flat top

    Sounds great! I have a Beavertail and it’s a wonderful mandolin. I’d love to play or hear a Hobo and Beavertail side by side. The Hobo is such a unique, cool pancake mandolin.

    Re: beside the mandolin.

    My main instrument is GDAE tuned tenor guitar. I could play tenor banjo too with the same tuning, itís an easy switch, but Iíd only do it if I needed the volume. I love how my tenor guitars sound,...

    Re: Sawchyn for a newb?

    That is already selling for an excellent price. If it was me and you tried to haggle down an already great deal I’d just say I’ll sell it to someone else and move on.

    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    For me it’s an easy decision, I’d buy the Waterloo. I’d love to hear more videos of it. The other flat top I’d love to hear is the Sawchyn Hobo. I can’t find anything online. The Sawchyn Beavertail...

    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    I agree with Marty, these are more for crossover Collings guitar enthusiasts. They are not competition for archtop mandolins since flat tops are a different sound. Like the Waterloo guitars they are...

    Re: Down the Tenor Rabbit Hole... (Help)

    I play in GDAE, never CGDA. When I got my first Herb Taylor hybrid archtop, flat back tenor guitar I stopped playing the other tenors I owned and soon sold them. I love their punchy, clear sound for...

    Re: Mid Missouri/Big Muddy Mini Mo.

    If it’s done right a bolt on neck has no negatives. It makes a neck reset a trivial operation.
  11. Re: Joining the Girouard club - commissioned a build!

    Wow Jill, this is a forever mandolin. I just listened to the two tunes you put on Utube and it sounds as good as it looks. It sounds fantastic! Great playing too!
  12. Re: Joining the Girouard club - commissioned a build!

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a top as stunning as that! Amazing!

  14. Re: Six strings are just too much! (but 8 might work...)

    I love tenor guitars. They are going to be easier on you hands than an OM. I play fiddle tunes on my Herb Taylor archtop and love how they sound on it. Tuned GDAE, same as an OM. Mine are #205 and...

    Re: Mandolins in Heaven ?

    Hell sounds like so much more fun, with a better selection of instruments, better musicians and better company. I’m going there if I get a choice!

    Re: Mandolin to fiddle (again)

    I’ve been playing fiddle for about two years. I’ve been neglecting my tenor guitars for most of that time. I recently started playing tin whistle again, I played years ago, after injuring my right...
  17. Re: All opinions welcome for Custom Carbon Tenor project!

    I think you should pick a builder you like, tell him what you want and let him make most of these decisions. You need to play a fan fret guitar to see what you think. I personally couldn’t play...

    Re: Any Penny Whistle Players here

    I started out on whistle and flute. I could never play flute well due to injury, but got ok on whistle. Fiddle has also pretty much taken over my life. Iím trying to still fit in some tenor guitar to...

    I’d love to play a Poe Scout. They are beautiful and sound great on the recordings I’ve listened to. He doesn’t seem to be building them, or at least not taking orders for a few years. Many of the...

    Re: Coombe pancake mandolin

    Let us know how you like it, Zach. I haven’t been playing my mandolins lately. It irritates the CMC joint at the base of my thumb. Not sure what the solution is, but I believe it’s because I’m also a...

    Re: Coombe pancake mandolin

    Peter, your instruments have always interested me, but it’s very expensive to ship them to the USA, I believe. What is a ballpark figure to ship one of your pancakes here?
