    Re: Gibson Master Model F5 @ the Mandolin store

    I agree with Jim & Bill. Too often the demonstrators are playing rapid fiddle tune single notes with a few chop chords. It's pretty one dimensional. Yes, some rapid lines are fine. Then some very...
  10. Re: Gibson Master Model F5 @ the Mandolin store

    Yes, his playing is impressive but he should drink a few less coffees and intersperse his rapid fire notes with some slower sustained ones so we can truly hear what the mandolin sounds like. I really...

    Re: why do mandolins have carved top?

    Sure. I once saw one of triangular design, a tapering shape with flat top and bottom as well as sides. It was certainly playable and sounded ok in the context of an informal jam.
