  1. Re: Help selling my mandolin in the UK (not an advert!)

    Hey Jimmy - I will list it today here and of course I will happily donate to the forum. People have been great here over the years and contributed to many years of happy playing.
  2. Re: Help selling my mandolin in the UK (not an advert!)

    Thank you Gelensby - Birmingham is my nearest Hobgoblin so I very well might see what they will pay although in my head I had a rather romantic notion that a new player would like to get a great...
  3. Re: Help selling my mandolin in the UK (not an advert!)

    Thank you Jim - that is very helpful indeed. I did have a look in the classifieds but they seemed to be all newer models in the US. They have different string guards, and most are in perfect...
  4. Help selling my mandolin in the UK (not an advert!)

    Hello to all. Nature has caught up with me and my arthritis means I can no longer happily play my Eastman 305 mandolin. I'm switching over to acoustic bass which is a great deal easier!

    I hope I...
  5. Re: HELP! needed to sell my Eastman MD305 in the UK if Posting

    I just looked up the emails from when I bought the mandolin originally and I can see that the seller used Parcelforce back then so I will use it also as they were very good.

    Thanks for the packing...
  6. Re: HELP! needed to sell my Eastman MD305 in the UK if Posting

    I will need to be very careful with the shirts I choose! Not all of them are appropriate!
  7. Re: HELP! needed to sell my Eastman MD305 in the UK if Posting

    Gosh, how annoying! I would never in a million years predict that bubble wrap would do that. Of course it makes sense, especially if tightly packed. I have already sent this to a dozen of my musician...
  8. Re: HELP! needed to sell my Eastman MD305 in the UK if Posting

    That's interesting - I would have assumed the chemicals in clothes would be more of an issue but looking around online it does seem that folks use shirts as padding for wood instruments so that is...
  9. Re: HELP! needed to sell my Eastman MD305 in the UK if Posting

    Thanks again Jill - I would much rather use Royal Mail tracked so it sounds like as long as it is packed and boxed correctly in won't get destroyed en-route. I would be VERY happy not to use one of...
  10. Re: HELP! needed to sell my Eastman MD305 in the UK if Posting

    Hello Jill! Gosh you are always so quick to help, most appreciated.

    Thank you so much for the link and your info and personal experience. I am probably over-thinking this because these mandolins...
  11. HELP! needed to sell my Eastman MD305 in the UK if Posting

    Hello folks - I wonder if you could help me out as I feel somewhat out of my depth here.

    I am about to sell one of my mandolins - my first one actually, the Eastman MD305 with Doug McLure ebony...

    Re: Pick thickness?

    Hey Zach - I just wanted to follow-up to say thank you for the suggestion of the Wegen TF100. I like them a lot and have started using them this week over my both my 1.5 Primetones (the flat and...

    Re: How to deal with 'The Beast from the East'

    I spent the weekend trying to learn double-stops and Off to California in front of a roaring wood fire, next to my eyeless cat, while my wife did her amazing ink drawings. Then we had a curry.

    I...

    Re: Celtic/Irish Mandolins

    I would agree with you - and I do think that at the point I bought my 305 I was not quite ready, and it has improved my playing massively. I got my Eastman for less than 300 so I got a great deal,...

    Re: Pick Click

    I have to say, as much as like my 1.5 Primetone, the one with the textured surface seems to be made of a plastic that really 'clacks' against the strings. I notice it a lot on songs I know well and...

    Re: Celtic/Irish Mandolins

    Anglocelt - I would be all over a Sobell if I found one! Unfortunately, it does seem as if my tastes in mandolins do not match my income very well. I always said that the cost of mandolin should...

    I would love to have a go on one a Girouard - lovely, lovely instruments. Did you play one of the 'fatter' bodied models?

    Thanks Gelsenbury - I did try without the armrest and it made no difference which made me alarmed about the possibility that this could have been permanently warped. I have put in some material...

    Buzzing Tailpiece - Help!

    This post relates to an Eastman MD305.

    So, I have had a good look around on the forum and from what I can see, all of the questions regarding buzzing at the tailpiece end relates to string buzzing...

    Re: Pick thickness?

    Hey Zach - no I haven't. I actually like slightly raised/mottled surface on the Primetone Grip pick, but I hear great things about the Wegens. I found some on of the 1mm TF100s on Ebay and ordered. I...
