  7. Re: Playing a collings - what would an "upgrade" really get me?

    Your Collings is a very good mandolin, and will do you fine. I've got a MT which has served me very well, and provides me with a different style and sound of mandolin than the Sobell 10 stringer...

  18. Re: Recordings of Mandolins as String Quartets

    It's good to see the Melonious Quartet (who are French) get a mention. I always thought they were great.
    They don't seem to be active these days, as far as I can see.

    Cathal Hayden is the business, both on fiddle and banjo. I belive he's made a CD called Hooked On Banjo, but I haven't heard it.
