    Re: For John Prine

    And they both clearly enjoyed themselves playing the song for John. In that moment they may have felt they were simply making music for a friend, brand names immaterial.

    Re: Live From Home

    This thread is magic. . .

    And oh lordy, can we do a world telecast of Norah's?! That was down to earth beautiful music, heartfelt soul.
  4. Re: Do You Play ALL of Your Mandolins Regularly?

    I have 3 mandolins and rotate them consistently, if maybe not equally. I like each one and often think I really just need one. But I'd hate to have to choose. If I went that route I'd probably have...
  5. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    I wonder how many non-Gibson mandolins and guitars were built since this thread started.

    Re: Why do people only sell the great ones?

    Ditto. I was about to reply with a similar post. I've (embarrassingly) bought and sold a number of mandolins over the years. The few I have landed on are really (to me) potentially great. If I sell...

    Re: What strings are you currently playing?

    I'll second that. See them if you get a chance, they're fabulous. I got to hear them last summer at the Targhee camp, just great.

    Re: Kimble a5 captured in the Wild!

    Kimble mandolins first really caught my attention hearing Andrew Marlin on his, then Andy Statman, Phil Barker (Town Mountain), and a local player frequently. They're great, and to me have a certain...

    Re: Solo builders

    Lots of great choices out there.

    I'd suggest a Ruhland or Kimble A5.
  13. Re: What's Your Favorite Instrumental-Mandolin Album?

    Listened to Reischman's "Up in the Woods" again yesterday. Such a great album.

    Re: In praise of mandolin builder Matt Ruhland

    Couple thoughts:

    - Matt has an innate "way with wood." It's intangible.
    - He's a master craftsman
    - Flat out passionate about refining his art, seeking information, tips, knowledge, and sage...

    Re: Mandolin Mount Rushmore.

    I don't see a need to "rank." All these great artists and more can share whatever title or stage. If they need to be on the side of the mountain just do holograms, switch them out every few days. . .

    Re: In praise of mandolin builder Matt Ruhland

    I agree 100% regarding the tone and power of Matt's mandolins. The responsiveness is simply startling.

    Re: Will Kimble mandolins are....

    They're something anyone looking for a great mandolin should try if at all possible, or just have Will build you one.

    I have two Eldorado straps, like them very much. They're leather, not cloth, but simple, high quality, comfortable.

    I'll offer what will be a pretty contrary opinion. I don't feel it's essential to play an instrument before buying it. The usual caveats here: my own opinion, experiences, tolerances, and other...
