    Re: Gibson Post Mortem

    I had the same question when I first started getting interested in mandolins. I didn't know about the Mandolin Cafe then. As I recall, it was a little confusing trying to figure out whether Gibson...

    Re: Home Recording - best bang for buck

    I have a Focusrite Scarlett 2i interface, Garage Band, and a AudioTechnica AT2020 microphone. All pretty basic stuff, but it's been fun to learn on. It's been very interesting learning to work with...

    Re: Mandolin as carry on?

    That is all fine, but the flight crew still retains all the discretion it needs to deny an instrument in the cabin on a crowded flight. You can't rely on this language, and I would never travel with...

    Re: Northfield Calhoun

    I also bought a Northfield recently, and I love it. These Calhouns look really cool. I'd love to try one. Great choice, and good luck with the learning.

    OP was asking about an A model. Eastman makes one — MD404. I’ve never seen one from Kentucky.

    Re: Who?

    I get people telling me I look like Tom Petty. Unfortunately, no one's ever told me I sound like him.

    Back to guitar after mandolin break

    Iíve been a daily guitar player for years, typically playing at least an hour a day. I got a mandolin about a year ago. I upgraded my mandolin recently and have been devoting more and more of my...

    Re: Northfield mandolins

    I love it. Sounds great, feels great, and is super fun to play. The varnish finish and Nugget tailpiece are two appointments that I especially like. I went through a guitar upgrade process over a...

    Re: Northfield mandolins

    I was wondering that too. I've read a ton of Northfield threads here (leading to my acquisition of a Model M), and I don't recall ever hearing about any finish issues. I can say that the varnish...

    Re: Different picks for different instruments

    It's pretty hard for anyone to tell you what to do, since we all have different taste. I'm a fairly new mando player/long-time guitar player too, but I much prefer a thicker pick on the mandolin...
  14. Re: Ebay Ratliff Mandolin Ads - Why is there little interest?

    As a seller, it would be tough for me to accept "I don't like how it sounds" as the sole reason for a return. I think it's impossible to ascertain in 24-48 hours whether an instrument "sounds good",...

  17. Re: Why are good mandolins more expensive than good guitars?

    It stands to reason that a carved instrument would be more expensive than a flattop. Still difficult to generalize, though. The $900-$1,000 Eastman guitars Iíve played seem pretty equal in terms of...
