  1. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    Great start. Good to see the Carters and Jimmie Rodgers getting their due.

    Re: Musician Jokes

    Over on the TalkBass forum is a very long thread with suggestions for Dad Band names. It's one of the funniest threads I've ever seen. Some examples:

    Re: New player and instrument

    Second the rec on MandoLessons.com.

    Resist the temptation to think of the mandolin as an upside down backwards guitar. It's a trap. Don't ask me how I know.

    My first mandolin was an MD 315,...

    Re: Top 5 Sam Bush tracks

    "The Old Home" on Doc Watson's 'Ridin That Midnight Train' album.

    Sam's performance on the whole album is great, but the first break on that song is just killer. One thing I love about Sam's...
  10. Re: Mandolin Orange and NPR's tiny desk concert

    As much as I love them with the full band, this is the format that first drew me in and will always be my fav.

    Re: Mandolin Orange: Music at the Mansion

    You know, I watch this video and find myself more drawn to the music when it's just the two of them. Not that I think the band is anything but stellar, just that the key to their magic is the...

    Lovely tune, well played. The mandolin sounds wonderful!

  15. Re: What's the diff between Northfield NF5S and F5 models?

    Agree 100%. I think my F5S is a beaut. I'm not that interested in bling, personally.

    I spent a half day in Fiddlers Green playing everything from Eastman 305 thru Ellis F5 and the F5S was the...
  16. Re: Straight Up Strings by Siminoff - any thoughts or experiences

    I started reading the engineering text on the site and quickly fell asleep.

    Bought a set and tried them on my Weber Bitterroot and they sounded great. Tried them on my Northfield F5S and they...

    Re: Mandolin Influences

    I've mentioned this in a couple other threads, but the responsibility for my picking up the mandolin lies squarely at the feet of Andrew Marlin, with help from Will Kimble.

    Fortunately, I've had...
  18. Re: What's the diff between Northfield NF5S and F5 models?

    The full model number is NF-F5S and that's for their "base model" F mandolin; what they call their S Series. Most references I've seen call it the 'F5S.' There is also an oval-hole model, the...

    Re: Best live gig setup for mandolin/guitar

    I have K&K pickups installed in both my Northfield F5S and my Martin D 28. I have been using the Red Eye Twin into an AI Focus amp, and it works ok, but not being able to EQ the two separately has...

    Re: Eastman MD-305

    Try lots of different strings. My MD 315 sounded much better with some Straight Up strings, while nickel strings make my Northfield F5S really sing. Try different picks, too. Those will have a...

    Re: Mandolins for 6k and under?

    Check out the Northfield F5S. Most of the same sound with less bling than the Artist and about half the price.

    Re: Andrew Marlin's Gilchrist F5

    That's the mandolin Andrew used on 'Buried In A Cape.'

    Good to hear it's the hands of another player who can do it justice!
