    Oh no! If he moves the store back to Ohio, a road trip would be in order and my in remission MAS may be reactivated. Third job, here I come!

  5. Re: How to choose a good F style mandolin when you are miles from

    You can call The Mandolin Store (NFI) and tell them the sound you are looking for, neck profile, etc and ask them for recommendations or what they have in stock that you might like.

    Re: Parting with a beloved mandolin

    Bill, I understand where you are coming from (and we are fairly close neighbors too, as I am in Alliance, OH.) I have a bit of MAS for a late 1920s/early 1930s Gibson A, but I cannot justify it...

    Re: A word of encouragement (but maybe not)

    I strive to get as good as Chris Thiele or Sarah Jaroz, although realistically I know that is unlikely to happen. And I also doubt I will get as good as I want to get before my body falls apart, but...

    Re: Polishing Frets

    I don't polish my frets, I wipe down the fretboard with a slightly damp rag when I change strings (remove residual finger sweat/dust) but do not polish anything.

    Re: Love the One Youíre With

    There is truth to this - you learn how to get the best out of the mando you play, and there is a learning curve (however small) when you are trying a new instrument.

    Pava sends them with GHS A270 strings, I would think/hope she knows what makes them sound best (at least in her opinion.) I am not sure I would deviate too far...

  17. Re: Ultimate Mixed Bag- 76 Mandolins in the Big Parade

    I paid less than $200 each for non-crack playable bowlbacks, that should give you an idea of value of the "mixed bag," although when I checked the link it said the item is no longer available.

    Re: Thinking About A Pava

    Re: Just a reminder

    Boy is this so true (not noticing worn tires.) I will check my mandolins, and this kind of goes with the "back to basics" whenever my playing starts to not work as well - recheck the obvious!

    Round bales are available all over NE Ohio also. We use banjos to keep them from rolling away though.
