    Re: Andrew Marlin's Pick

    Interesting. When did Andrew start playing a Gibson? I am so out of the loop. I'm looking forward to seeing Mandolin Orange when they come to town next January.

    Re: Pava Mandolins

    I've had a lot of mandolins come and go, but I still miss Pava #52. It definitely prefer a 0.016 on the A, and I think that's what they are shipped with. I used a TAD60 on mine primarily as it seemed...
  4. Re: Joining the Girouard club - commissioned a build!

  5. Re: Why is the Kentucky KM900 being discontinued?

    I remember they used to pop up in the classifieds for around $600 shipped back in the good old days. In fact I'd bought and sold a number of them. All good sounding mando, and great for the money....

    Re: Pava

    #52 - the one I got from Daryl. It was the last one I kept, and my favorite. :(

    Re: Pava

    Congrats Greg. The Pava is a wonderful mandolin and I know you will be blown away by it. I still miss mine. Like Mark above I couldn't believe I let mine go either.

    Re: hats off to Pava Knesevic!

    Congrats. I had to let mine go earlier this year and boy do I miss it. It was also a Satin model.

    I have been a fan of your writings and all your videos Donnie and your enthusiastic endorsement of Ken's work is in part one of the reason I decided to get one. I still think Ken's mandolins have a...

  18. Re: Best Mandolin to buy for under $600 ?

    I haven't played the 520, so if I have to pick one from the three, I'd go for the Eastman 505. It basically got the same sound and setup as the 515, but without the scroll and the added expense.

    Re: Just Bought an Eastman DGM-2!

    I played one a while back and thought it was a very good mandolin. I liked the tone better than some of the Gibson oval A I have played. At that price it's almost a no-brainer. Congrats on the score.

    Well Dan if you can't find a Pava, and happen to be in San Diego, you are welcome to try mine :)

    I'm not sure what McCabes and Boulevard have nowadays, but when I dropped in there 4-5 years ago, they only had Kentucky, Eastman and The Loar. I don't recall any Weber or other US made models.

    It sounds like the OP had already narrowed down to two specific mandolins that are available in his area, and is not looking to buy used (or new) from outside his area. In that scenario, the only...
