    Re: "Powerful/Loud!"

    I don't feel my mandolins are loud but my wife from the audience tells me it is and I sometimes drown out the singers or other players so I am trying to keep volume down more !

    Re: Mandolin Considerations -- Add to my List

    Absolutely ! In that price range you can get a NEW Girouard ! Won't find any better workmanship and your ears will love the Girouard sound ! Built by Max and Laurie Girouard !
  3. Re: Off in the weeds on my first mando purchase ...

    The 305 will be a good starter mandolin ! As you progress you will soon wave good bye to it and upgrade !

    Re: NMD - Girouard Oval

    Played many ovals at Gruhn's in Nashville from many builders and to my ears and eyes none compared to a Girouard ! Wonderful sound and eye candy for sure !

    Re: Rag mandolins

    If you like the sound go for it ! Can't beat the price ! To my ears I don't but all ears are different ! If Ricky Skaggs was playing it I'm sure it would sound much better !

    Re: Brentrup Mandolins

    Played one at Gruhns. Just okay. Of course that was just one example. No where close to the Ellis mandolins I played

    I took online lessons ( Skype) a number of years ago from Pete Martin ! Excellent teacher but I was a poor student ! I didn't begin playing until 64 years young and not much talent so it has been a...

  20. Re: How to choose a good F style mandolin when you are miles from

    Another $1000. And you should have enough for a Girouard ! Maybe a little less ! Max Girouard builds fantastic mandolins ! Actually, I just found out you can get a Girouard F5 for 5000. Bucks !
  21. Re: Decision Time for wood type - Is the difference big?
