    Re: Tone-gard & tonyp

    Love, love, love my tonegards! A mandola I purchased came with one and I was shocked at the difference with vs without. I had one for my other dola and my OM ordered within a day :grin:

    Re: Arm rest. Y or N?

    Emphatic yes! In addition to really disliking sweaty mandolas/mandolins, my elbow tends to fall just wrong enough that it's really uncomfortable without. Two of mine are angled from Doug at Hill...

  6. Re: Advantage and disadvantage of the Cutaway on Tenor guitar ?

    The only downside to a cutaway that I've found is they usually have an internal mic that adds to the weight. It really is just preference/style. I just picked up a Kala tenor that I enjoy but I do...

    Re: Favorite A style mandolin?

    I have a mandola and an octave mandolin, both are Gallatin A styles and I'm utterly smitten. The most common complaint about Webers is their beefy necks but they're perfect for my hands. I haven't...

    Re: How Do I Maximize An Octave Mandolin?

    I only recently dove down the mando rabbit hole but have played guitar for a few years. I'm not a stellar player but I have fun. I love bluegrass & TIM and dabble with both but my passion is blues....

    Those exclusions get you every time! Whether they get you a mandolin or a little time in the dog house depends on your significant other of course :))

    Re: Recommend Mandola in CGDA strings?

    Sweet! I noticed that one too. I hope it sounds as good as it looks :grin: I use EJ72s on my mandola (17 in scale) & my octave mandolin (20 in scale). I've not tried any others on the mandola yet...
