  1. Re: Sirius Radio Replaced Bluegrass station 62 with 24/7 Dolly Pa

    Lol, Mike, I can remember being thrilled when I got a CD player that would play through the tape deck in my old Tacoma back in the late 90s. Plugged into the lighter for power, and could almost make...

    Re: Rigel pricing inquiry

    I recently picked up a 2002 CT-110 that is in line with Marty’s experience. The thing is a beast, louder than my Kelley A5 (so far, anyway. The Kelley is plenty loud and still practically new), and...

    Re: Action vs clarity

    It may be worthwhile to have it checked out the next time you’re in your fav music store (can’t remember offhand if you’re near Dusty Strings or Gryphon?). I like jumbo frets, but felt like I had to...

    Ah, yes, the blank space. Thankfully it’s only happened to me a couple of times, and always in the friendly confines of a youth worship service where it’s easy to turn it into a joke or a teachable...

    Re: Is my MAS dead?

    Sometimes going to such a store can be a real education. Iíve been fortunate of late that the lesson has been that my Kelley A5 and Rigel CT-110 are very, very good instruments, with which I am well...
  15. Re: To the multi instrumentalists: which instrument is your no. 1

    Mandolin is my favorite, but I’m still more proficient on guitar, which I’ll begrudgingly admit is more versatile. I also play OM, bass, and banjo. Well, I own a banjo, but wouldn’t say that I’m a...

    Re: National RM1 String Action

    When I bought mine I had visions of playing searing slide mandolin so left my action a little higher. When I realized I was going to play it without a slide 99% of the time, I lowered my nut action...

    Re: Weber, the best years.

    I haven't played one of their mandolins recently, but the tone and quality of the Yellowstone MC I just traded in for a Bitterroot 20 inch scale OM were outstanding, as is the fit/finish. The OM is...

    Re: Looking for beginner mandolin.

    If you can make it to TAMCO, do so and play as many as you can in your range. If you're not looking to play a ton of bluegrass a flat top, like a Flatiron 1N, will get you a better quality instrument...
  20. Re: Gibson Master Model vs. Ellis F5 with all of his highest opti

    Not much else to chime in with, other than I, in general, tend to prefer Adi topped instruments, but my Silverangel from 2009 was reportedly Sitka, and it was an awesome sounding and loud mandolin. A...

    Very cool, indeed, but, since Marty liked playing his carved up 700 dollar mandolin better, I think I'll pass ;)

  23. Re: Gibson Master Model vs. Ellis F5 with all of his highest opti

    The two best mandolins I’ve played to date (to my hands/ears) were a Giacomel at Gruhn’s and Josh Pinkham’s Red Diamond, both valued at 12,500 or so at the time (5-6) years ago now. That includes 2...
