  1. Re: Semi-beginner here... trade-up or keep what I have?

    I was thinking that it might give a little bit more of the traditional look of an acoustic mandolin as well as improved acoustic performance.
  2. Re: Semi-beginner here... trade-up or keep what I have?

    This suggestion is the best one yet. My thought had been one of the older American-made Ovations:

    Re: Collings MT vs Pava A

    I owned one of each. I loved how the Collings played but found it a bit strident for solo practice, while the Pava was a tad quieter and more complex yet less comfortable for me due to its full neck...

    Re: Traditionally voiced A-style?

    Bob, can you elaborate on this point please? I don’t think that I have previously heard anyone attribute the difference between “traditional” and “modern” mandolins to the contrast between a Loar...

    I love the article and have returned to it repeatedly, but I don't find an F-style in its contents.

    Re: $1000 Budget - What should I get?

    I'd hunt around to see if I could find a Kentucky KM-1000 in that price range, but barring that (and I couldn't find one in a cursory search), I'd buy the best Eastman in my budget:...

    Re: Heiden Artist Plus A model mandolin

    That one was a 2001, correct? Are there any years or periods in Michael's long building career that are more or less desirable?

    Re: Beginner ?’s about changing sound/tone

    You might consider flatwound strings. Thomastik-Infeld makes wonderful, and expensive, sets, but you might try D’Addario’s more affordable EFW74 pack.

    I was wondering if it belonged to the late Phil Goodson. Looking at it makes me sad.

    Re: Mandolin purchase advice for a new player

    The MD515 will have better hardware, but given its wear and uncertain year, I’d go with the MD315. You might find different in the same general price range, but you’re really only going to find...
  17. Re: Suggestions for the Solution of Limited Options Problem

    I would second this advice. You can search the classifieds using “€” or “EU” and pick through the listings. The best option currently available in your price range is this one in Poland:

    By “exchange” do you mean the exchange rate or the importation of the instrument?

  23. Re: rarest of rare in the classifieds, great instrument, super pr

    There's a Facebook page for #19 claiming it was completed in October of 2019, and I seem to recall Adrian saying that he was working on #20-#26 during the pandemic:

  24. Re: rarest of rare in the classifieds, great instrument, super pr

    I believe that Adrian has only completed nineteen mandolins, and I’ve never seen one listed in the classifieds previously.
