    Re: Dreaming of a Great A5 under $6000

    I have yet to meet the bluegrass police, but I have met the Irish Session Garda. Some polite, some not so polite. In the grand words of Kevin Burke, a man who knows his way around a tune, "it...

    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    Collings has not reopened yet, and probably won’t be up to 100% capacity for a long while. These are available through any Waterloo dealer. A dealer can order one for you, but there’s going to be a...

    Re: Kimble two point reviews?

    Mine had been at Monroe Camp with Will, in 2017. I put some NBs on it recently. Made it louder, and not as dry sounding. I am proud to say, it can now be heard over the accordion player in our...

    The problem with the Deering Goodtimes is they lack a truss rod. For a while there were a lot of complaints about bowed necks.
