    Re: Best Armrest

    I have only tried Soliver's armrests. I now have 2 of them and am quite happy with both.
  2. Re: ISO Recs for Bluegrass Mandolins in the $900-1.2K rang

    A Howard Morris A5 goes for $995 new. He often posts in the classifieds and will build custom. Great instruments! A quick search of Morris will bring up dozens of threads.

    I came to suggest McKenzie River Music but see that has been covered. Troubador Music in Corvallis carries Kentucky so you might check in with them. We also have some great builders in Oregon....

    The album release shows in Portland were great. Billy is great about mixing it up. It can be all out psychedelic madness one tune and straight forward bluegrass the next.

    Re: NMD: Howard Morris A-4 #430

    Congrats! Sonny makes a helluva mandolin. I have had #393 for about 18 months. I just got a new Ruhland 2 weeks ago and the Morris is still staying. In my opinion there isn't anything close in value...

    Re: Eastman 315 MD & Loar LM-520

    I have played them both and owned a 520 for a while. While plenty will disagree, I much preferred The Loar 520. It was more traditional sounding which I like. Maybe I got a good one, but it only...

    I brought #41 home today. I will post a comprehensive review and sound clip later, but this mandolin is great! Less than a week old, it is loud, balanced, with very clear bell like noting.

    Re: Looking for a GOOD flat top mandolin

    Howard Morris builds a very nice affordable flat top. You get customization options with him as well. I believe there may be 1 or 2 in the classifieds directly from him.
