    Re: Octolindo on the way!

    Howdy,

    How do you like the new Octolindo? Did you keep it or send it back after someone recently posted that there was a Clark OM for sale?

    Re: Octolindo on the way!

    Well, I've been saving up for an OM for awhile now. The Northfield Archtop OM and the Octolindo are both at the top of my wishlist but I've never played either. I've loved what I've heard on...

    Re: Cocaine and Rhinestones

    Podcasts come and go and while Cocaine and Rhinestones is, by far, the best podcast on 20th Century Country Music, it is, IMHO, one of the best podcasts ever! It's a perfect example of what a...

    Re: Octave Mandolin advice

    A few years back I drove out from San Diego to The Mandolin Store when they were still in Phoenix for a weekend of hiking and mandolin/guitar shopping. I didn't expect to like the Pono Terse shaped...

    Re: The "legitimate classical instrument" thing..

    Interesting discussion. People just seem to love categorizing things and hate-ahs are always gonna hate.

    And in the interest of self awareness, I continue to be surprised of how guilty I am of...
  6. Re: Recommendations for a great Jazz tenor guitar?

    Hey, Shaun! I feel yer pain. I'm GASin' for a Northfield Archtop OM (maple back and sides) for mostly the same reasons. That new Octolindo OM might fit the bill too. I've been helping a buddy...

    I believe I first saw this on Thursday on an Instagram post from The Mandolin Store. I'd love to know more. What really surprised me is that the Octolindo appears to be an arch top while the...

    Re: New Chris Thile album

    I'm loving this album and it's getting better with each listen. For me it has the same kind of endearing intimacy that one would find say on a Chris Whitley album. There is some amazing moments of...

    Re: iReal Pro Charts

    In general, this is what I prefer as well. But there is something really compelling about forcing yourself to not stop just as if you were in a live ensemble. Learning how to recover without...

    I was lucky enough to get a set of their prototype LSD enhanced strings for review but I don't really remember the experience except for brief flashbacks every now and then.

    Aaron,

    I'm not one to name my instruments but I'd be tempted to call that one "Bucky."

    Re: Jazz Players

    Howdy,

    I love rcc56's reply.

    You should consider taking an on-line swing mandolin class with Matt Flinner who offers them periodically throughout the year. You might even be able to purchase...

    Re: Gassing for next Mandolin

    I agree with pheffernan. Although Breedlove stopped making their American mandolin a few years ago, you can still find them new and unsold in some stores. I saw a new one for sale at the local Sam...

    Re: Mandolino toscano

    Eugene,

    I don't remember seeing this one upon my return visit to Planet oHIo in September 2019. It's probably a good thing since I would probably want to finger pick it or strum it like an...

    Re: Your first great mandolin

    I too have never turned over a mandolin. I started with a Hodson Djangolin. Then I got an Eastman 515. They are both nice mandolins but my Buckeye F5 and I are legally married.
