    Re: Taran Springwell

    Definitely louder, and the cocobolo laminated sides certainly assist in volume and a slight extra zing/edge compared with the Indian rosewood Sobell. Still wouldn't bother with it at a session, as...

    Good man! I hope that more folk here might support the lads efforts by downloading. It's very hard to sell music these days, so any support goes a long way!

    Re: Brendan o'Regan mandolin playing

    I toured the USA with Brendan when he was a member of De Danann, back in 1983. A true wizard of the strings and I believe he became an accomplished studio producer. Great guy!
