    Re: Narrowed it down to three

    Re: Narrowed it down to three

    Another +1 for Kentucky.

    Eastmans are also very good instruments.

    Re: Octave Mandolin Stand

    I also use the Hercules stands at home for guitars. My Octave also fits nicely. They're sturdy and well-built.

    So pleased to hear that AS has managed to get things back on track - it’s no fun being on a treadmill 24/7. He has such a talent, and it’s great there will be new music from him in due course.
