    Re: Post A picture of your favorite "A" model

    I know people say that there isn't any difference, but I just don't like F's. I've only played a couple that I liked and I've just never felt the need to spend the extra money (I probably couldn't...

  8. Re: If you could have any mandolin in the world….

    I was thinking along the lines of MontanaMatt's list (post #24), however this being wishful thinking, I do love the sound of both John Reishman's Loar and Tim O'Brien's Nugget. However I do recognize...

    Re: Are Eastmans a keeper?

    I agree 100% with Br1ck. I too started with an Eastman (a 305 to be exact) and it really was a killer instrument that I played on stage and enjoyed immensely. However, I can say that there indeed a...

    Re: Lateral Upgrade?

    I would agree with the consensus that any of these instruments is an upgrade, but they are all very different animals.

    Re: Externally vs Internally mounted Piezo?

    Thanks Marty, they were mounted with a very thin layer of blue tac.... maybe I'll try a different means of mounting them, or Its possible that the JJB just has a quieter output than the K&K (...
