    Re: Mandolin Gift Suggestions

    Tone guard?
    Song books?
    $50 could go towards lessons?
    PIcks as suggested above are good.

  4. Re: 4-String, Solid Body Electric Mandolin Options

    I bought an Andrew Jerman for about 1/2 your budget early this year that is a 4 string electric. It was used, but I think his new ones come in around $1000.

    I am very happy with it. I don't have...
  5. Re: Guess that rig - Jarrod Walker edition

    I do not have a guess, but he has been a guest on Mandolins and Beer about 4 times or more. I think they talked pretty extensively about his gear. I've listened to them, but since I have little/no...

    Re: Obscure, solid Mandolin Players

    Interesting to see this old thread pop-up and open it up and see Cruz Contreras and the CC Stringband as the first post. I'm a big fan of Cruz's songwriting and have seen him a bunch of times. He...

    Re: Mid-MO value

    Sometimes with the Big Muddy/Mid-Mo they will change woods on the same model number, so if you know what woods yours are made from, that might be a differentiator from the new models. Otherwise, the...

    Re: Mid-MO value

    They retail new (Big Muddy, not Mid-Mo, for what its worth) for $855 without any options and about $100 more than that for some different configurations. I would place this somewhere between $650...

    Re: Warm up song

    Used to be Old Joe Clark, but I've switched so it is usually Angeline the Baker now. Just songs that I learned to play and like to play.

  13. Re: Advice on buying a new mandolin? Been playing for 15+yrs

    Yes, they are generally Golden Age tuners. I've round references to Grovers, but I don't know if somebody else upgraded that instrument or if he just used those for a time and later switched to the...
  14. Re: Advice on buying a new mandolin? Been playing for 15+yrs

    Are you open to an flat top? Oval hole? That would expand your number of options. I have a very nice Big Muddy that I bought for less than your budget, and I could put a pickup in it for pretty...

    Shazam does this. I have never used it, so I can't tell you how good it works or how large a dataset it works on.

    Re: greg butler/ viper strut

    I've never heard of him, but as this band looks like they would play music I would like, I clicked a few links. It appears Greg has moved on and they no longer have a mandolin player with them.
