    Re: New Northfield/Gilchrist tailpiece-Nice!

    Re: Reverb announces increase in fees

    It seems like reverb has dumped a ton of money into SEO. Google anything instrument related and you get a million reverb ads.

    Re: Northfield new pricing

    My concept of the initial brand identity for Northfield was they enable buyers to get in to a very high quality mandolin at a lower price point. That they are now going for $6K was surprising to me,...

    Re: Northfield new pricing

    It's important to me that people in America are able to make a living manufacturing mandolins, and for this reason I prioritize purchasing American-made mandolins. I don't associate this with the...

    Hello,

    I saw the duo at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra on 4/19. The sound at this particular venue was amazing, and it sounded like the mandolin was 3 feet away from me. I was also really...

    Re: Mandolin kit- skip binding?

    I believe the Arches kit can be ordered without binding channels, and with a slightly oversize top and back if you decide to go the no binding route.

    I would say #2 is the Gibson.

    Hi,

    It looks like the initial run of the F-style sold out, and now the A is available.
