    Re: Breedlove FF X-braced Mandolin w/Aged Toner

    Has anyone played bluegrass with someone playing a Breedlove FF? How's the chop? How's the sound on the breaks? I know that my Weber Gallatin Mahogany, for example, was hard to hear, especially on...

    Re: Breedlove FF X-braced Mandolin w/Aged Toner

    There isn't. I included the link to the Breedlove FF on the Mandolin Store site, only. No audio clip on the site I'm considering buying from. There are only comments in the description area.

    Re: Good Instrument/Mandolin shops in Boston?

    I second the Music Emporium. It's window shopping for most, but can give you an idea of what to save for :-)
