    Re: New player - Mandolin

    My advice would be to consider used. I found a KM-150 on Craigslist a few years back for like $150, had it set up by a reputable luthier and it is good to go for less than 1/2 your budget. I do like...

    Re: Heiden Artist Plus A model mandolin

    They both sound really great. Going to have to suit up and have a meeting of the minds so I can play the A.

    Re: Lessons With Andy Statman

    It's been a few years, but I used to stop by Andy's for a lesson whenever I made my way out to NYC. He is a brilliant musician (obviosuly) and a great teacher. Taught me some things that I still...

    Re: Collings MT vs Pava A

    Obviously YMMV and each instrument is going to be different especially when there are probably 1000s of MTs out there and 100s of Pavas. The Pava I had, which was 168, I think, was loud. It played...

    Re: Collings MT vs Pava A

    To my ear, Collings tend to have a more focused, staccato sound versus a warmer more open sound on the Pavas I have played. Both can be great but if I had to pick one I would go with the Pava. Pava's...

    Re: Traditionally voiced A-style?

    But Shaun, are we talking un-amplified or not? Playing loud or soft? Old style Kimble before he made the changes or after? Ronnie's Gil or Compton's Gil? How can we have generalities when we need...

    Re: Traditionally voiced A-style?

    When placed in the bluegrass context as OP noted, I take "traditional voiced" to mean sounding more Monroe's Loar. Dry, strong midrange, power and focus.

    Hey Steve,

    I sent you a message on Facebook. I used to own that instrument and it was recently for sale again in the classifieds, but appears to be gone now.

    Re: Trading

    You can hardly take out the trash without stumbling over a Strat. So unless you know you are getting a good trade value-wise (which it sounds like you aren't that well informed on the used Strat...

  23. Re: If money was no object, and perfect bluegrass tone was only g

    In my experience a good Red Diamond mandolin seems to capture that vintage F5 tone. But lots of great mandolins put out great tone for bluegrass music.

    Re: Old v New

    I owned one of Lou's from the 80s that was great. I played another from the 90s I think that was also really incredible. His early mandolins are really great.
