    Re: New Eastman MD-315 or used Kentucky KM-855

    Thanks. That is the plan.

    There is a monthly bluegrass jam not far from me. After I have a little experience I will take the 315 there.

    Re: New Eastman MD-315 or used Kentucky KM-855

    If I had the money I would have bought the 915. I was impressed. But I am really happy with my purchase.

    The best thing is my wife loves it too.

    Re: New Eastman MD-315 or used Kentucky KM-855

    Well, I came home with an Eastman MD-315. The luthier at the store was also the owner and he had quite a selection of Eastmans. I had him play a couple for me. He played the MD915 and then the MD315...

    First, I said I will "probably" order it from TMS. I am not expecting much from local stores, but I am willing to be surprised.



    As I mentioned in my other post, they will have to convince me...

    Re: New Eastman MD-315 or used Kentucky KM-855

    You seem to forget that I am a first time mandolin buyer. I wouldn't know an okay setup from a great one. All I can do is go by the reputations of the store I buy it from. You guys have given a...

    Heading out Thursday to check out a few Eastman's. Based on the feedback you guys have given, if I find a mandolin I like I will probably order it from The Mandolin Store. I am just not confident the...

    Re: New Eastman MD-315 or used Kentucky KM-855

    They are a small guitar shop. I wouldn't be surprised if they don't know how to set it up properly. I doubt if anyone there can play it.

    I am pretty much financing this by selling stuff I haven't...

    Re: New Eastman MD-315 or used Kentucky KM-855

    I tried the KM-855. It is at a small shop and it is on consignment. It may be just the setup, but I found it lacking considerably in tone and sound. The action was very high, the sound was tinny and...

    Re: New Eastman MD-315 or used Kentucky KM-855

    You might be right. In the '90s I upgraded my guitar to a Taylor 240 and I have never wanted another one. Time will tell. Thanks for the info.

    New Eastman MD-315 or used Kentucky KM-855

    I am looking to buy my first (and hopefully final) mandolin. I have been a guitar bluegrass player for a long time but I have got the mandolin bug. I also play a little banjo. So I do not consider...
