    Re: Help: Looking To Buy My First Mandolin

    I would purchase a pava from the mandolin store. They do financing, and their customer service can't be beat.

    Re: Resetting Expectations on Quality

    I don't even want dog slobber on my pava or morris, can't imagine the aneurysm I would have if I got slobber on a Heiden. Lol

    I got a boerboel (south African mastiff) recently. She's currently 8 months old and 150 lbs. When I play any instrument she loves to put her mouth on them, whether she's licking or just rubbing her...

    What are your criticisms of the book?
  5. Re: Standard Notation for the Tab-Addicted Mandolinist

    I've tried making a purchase from this website and their PayPal is either experiencing an error or entirely defunct as "buy it now" goes no where.
  6. Standard Notation for the Tab-Addicted Mandolinist

    Where can this book be found? I've tried to search on Google and come up empty handed.

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Collings MT vs Pava A

    I've played both and considered purchasing both. When it comes to playability, I'm not sure anything is easier to play than a Collings. I was shocked, honestly. It'll have you playing like a...

    Re: $1000 Budget - What should I get?

    If you want an American build with a great tone and a luthier who guarantees his builds; Morris. Otherwise +1 on the eastman 300 series. They have a great warranty and are, in my opinion, some of the...

    Re: DAWG picks. YES, they work

    I have so many picks because I got tired of digging them out every time I used a different instrument. I've got a mandola, octave mandolin, oval hole, f hole. I also use two different types of picks...

    Re: DAWG picks. YES, they work

    Sigh. I have about 300 dollars worth of blue chip picks. I thought I'd never stray from the brand. On a whim, I bought a pack of 10 dawgs for 10 dollars. I'm now filled with 300 dollars worth of...

    Re: $1000 Budget

    Ratliff's are great but you're not gonna get one for a grand. Country boy f style goes for just over 1700.

    An f style for a thousand bucks your best bet is either a Kentucky or eastman.

    Re: Well set up beater mandolin??

    I don't have the tools. A basic set up kit from stewmac costs 120 dollars. At that price I might as well get the rover from elderly, but unfortunately that's not in my price range.
