  1. Re: Article: The Mandolin Store Moving to Tennessee

    Agreed! An 8-hour drive for some mando-tasting sounds much more within the realms of reason than a 30-hour drive :grin:

    Though I do regret that I'm unlikely to receive any more packages from...

    A suggestion from slightly-outside-the-box:

    Picking up the mandolin forced me to come to terms with how weak my hands were. I work in information technology and the majority of my time is spent...

    Re: Ibanez Buyer beware

    Unfortunately for us there isn't a well regulated list of terms for describing instruments. Most manufacturers use the phrase 'solid spruce' to differentiate from laminate tops rather than to...

  7. Re: Sound: opinions sought on technique vs instrument, i.e. anti-

    I have an MD305 and, like Doug, also felt that moving up to a heavier gauge of string for the A and E pairs was beneficial for tone. In the beginning I was buying a pack of EJ74s and a pack of EJ75s...

    Re: Josh Turner Guitar Plays Mandolin

    Love his work - especially when Carson does vocals. The video of Little Wing that David shared had quite a lot to do with my decision to purchase an Eastman as my first mandolin.

    Re: Love Bluegrass but....

    It's funny that you compare metal and bluegrass, Andrew Marlin did the same thing when MO was recording at Audiotree. Turns out he was a metal guitarist in high school.

    Re: Does mandolin improve guitar technique

    For some reason when I read Nick's post my mind immediately substituted 'Lou' for 'Jerry' and I experienced something like the audio equivalent of vertigo when the music started.
  15. Re: Ebay Ratliff Mandolin Ads - Why is there little interest?

    In most cases the only thing an F-style will do for you that an A-style won't is give you somewhere handy to attach a strap.

    That said, if you think you're only going to buy one mandolin it might...

    Re: Action vs clarity

    I think that I just went through something like this on my mando, so I'll take a stab at it.

    Re: Collings MT2 Review

    I got a mandolin from TMS and for 8-9 months was too terrified to make any adjustments to it. After all, they were known for doing quality setups and, at that time, I knew even less about mandolins...

    Re: Old Gibson A mandolin copy?

    I got curious and ran that ticket price through two different inflation calculators. $22.50 spent in 1975 (just to pick a year) is equal in value to $108-110 US dollars today :crying:
