    Re: Dreaming of a Great A5 under $6000

    I'd recommend Kimble as well, and Ruhland. I don't know what Matt is asking for A5's right now, but they were, and maybe still are, a great value. Matt, like Will, builds amazing mandolins. As do the...

    Re: Doubt about a banjo for Bluegrass

    Just to add, the technique is much different, as it requires 3 (usually) fingerpicks, vs 1 flatpick. Mastering the rolls Jacob mentions is a whole other thing compared with a single flatpick (my take...

    Re: Feline String Change Caution

    I agree. We had a cat who would come running anytime he heard me changing mando, guitar or banjo strings, and loved to play around with the strings as they whipped around as I changed them. I was...

    Re: James Tailpiece Opinions

    I love James tailpieces, but my take it that while the tailpiece alone may have made a small change in the sound, I agree with pheffernan, it's likely mostly Lynn and whatever he did to the set-up,...

    Re: We Lost John Prine.

    Yes, really aren't words enough for the sadness. Such a great human who touched millions of lives with his character and songs. So many people hit by this tragedy.

    Thank you John.

    Re: Royal Box Waltz

    You can probably get it from Tristan. I'm not going to give away his work or transcriptions. Maybe you'll find it elsewhere. Good luck.

    Re: For John Prine

    And they both clearly enjoyed themselves playing the song for John. In that moment they may have felt they were simply making music for a friend, brand names immaterial.

    And oh lordy, can we do a world telecast of Norah's?! That was down to earth beautiful music, heartfelt soul.
  13. Re: Do You Play ALL of Your Mandolins Regularly?

    I have 3 mandolins and rotate them consistently, if maybe not equally. I like each one and often think I really just need one. But I'd hate to have to choose. If I went that route I'd probably have...
  14. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    I wonder how many non-Gibson mandolins and guitars were built since this thread started.

    Re: Why do people only sell the great ones?

    Ditto. I was about to reply with a similar post. I've (embarrassingly) bought and sold a number of mandolins over the years. The few I have landed on are really (to me) potentially great. If I sell...

    Straight Ups. You bet. Like them on every mando I've put them on.

    I'll second that. See them if you get a chance, they're fabulous. I got to hear them last summer at the Targhee camp, just great.

    Re: Kimble a5 captured in the Wild!

    Kimble mandolins first really caught my attention hearing Andrew Marlin on his, then Andy Statman, Phil Barker (Town Mountain), and a local player frequently. They're great, and to me have a certain...

    Re: Solo builders

    Lots of great choices out there.

    I'd suggest a Ruhland or Kimble A5.

    Listened to Reischman's "Up in the Woods" again yesterday. Such a great album.

    Re: In praise of mandolin builder Matt Ruhland

    Couple thoughts:

    - Matt has an innate "way with wood." It's intangible.
    - He's a master craftsman
    - Flat out passionate about refining his art, seeking information, tips, knowledge, and sage...

    Re: Mandolin Mount Rushmore.

    I don't see a need to "rank." All these great artists and more can share whatever title or stage. If they need to be on the side of the mountain just do holograms, switch them out every few days. . .
