    Re: Compulsive purchase- Flatiron 1N

    Hmm? I've only had the Flatiron in my hands. I think the original Flatiron was modeled after the Army-Navy; however. Not sure about the Crystal Forest?

    Re: Compulsive purchase- Flatiron 1N

    I awake in a fog. . .

    Last night I offered $600 against a $1,200 eBay pitch on an '83 2M. The dust settled at $650.

    Re: Eastman OM - a one-month review

    What I notice, I can't play anything up to dance tempo, but all the tunes sound curiously different.

    Stuff like that entertains me!

    Re: Who makes a good inexpensive Octave Mandolin?

    I have no experience with the OM. I bought the Eastman MDO-305. I put the EJ 72 strings on it.

    Pretty much all I've been playing since COVID. Just a lot of fun!

    Then again, I've never played...

    I've been using them since this came up. No problems at all. Actually, during COVID, I'm having a blast on my OM. I really enjoy having it around!

    I'm currently using EXP74cm, which have the 11.5 E string.

    Then too, I like the Heavy Starks.

    Re: Grandfathers Gibson A3 Mandolin

    So great! I've kept my A3 for over 35 years. Second owner. When I got it it needed work - neck was bowed and the seams separated. Well worth the repair bill back then and remained stable since. ...

    I walk around my yard and play fiddle tunes all the time. I just enjoy the command of doing it - well, that and the overall therapy.

    Re: Narrowing my string search....

    umm, no?

    Thomastik strings are smooth as silk and the A set is flat wound as well. A set of their heavy gauge strings is less than typical mediums and their mediums are like lights.

    Re: Narrowing my string search....

    the nice thing about Thomastik strings is they last forever.

    The bad think is that they are expensive.

    That said, you may like them?
