    Re: Should I be insulted?

    Mine did the same thing at first, but now will at least stay in the room (albeit a safe distance away). I chalk it up to improved playing.

    Will Kimble doesn't do commissions anymore, so I had to jump when he had an A available last summer. Not exactly jumping into the unknown, as I was familiar with the sound of his instruments and...

    Same boat. I am trying to appreciate each group for their assets, and adjust what I am trying to get out of the session accordingly.

    Take a day trip to Austin and go to Fiddlers Green. Play everything, then decide if a better mandolin is worth the cost. My money is on you saying 'yes'
