  6. Re: Help! I can't hear the beat when I play a break

    That was great! Maybe not as much fun as the Hi-Fi but fantastic none the less.

    Re: What has your mandolin been called?

    My wife calls them 'Mandolins'.

    It's the accompanying adjectives that are questionable... especially if she's home to see the UPS man drop off anther oblong cardboard box.

    A recent discussion about a mandolin... polite, seemingly non-controversial and posted in of all places 'General Mandolin Topics'... and it gets shut down.

    Re: Original cost of a Lloyd Loar F5

    Bill of sale I found in the case of my '20 A model was $40.00. So yes... probably considered a big ticket item by the average Joe.
