    Re: I fear

    I've owned a few banjos over the years but haven't had one for awhile. I always played 3 finger Scruggs style, but I've had a hankering to try clawhammer style. I finally broke down recently and...

    Re: Silverangel Econo A #446

    I have the heavies on there that Ken recommends. There don't seem to be a lot of choices for heavies, and Ken feels the D'Addario J75's are the best choice for his mandolins. I experimented a lot...

    Re: beside the mandolin.

    I've owned a few banjos over the years and played 3-finger Scruggs style, but haven't owned a banjo in about ten years. I've had a constant yearning but was just too busy to buy one. Last week I...

    Re: My new Silverangel Econo A has arrived!

    Congratulations! My Econo A is supposed to be completed this week. I never would have thought I'd have a mandolin built specifically for me, but last month I contacted Ken about a mandolin he had on...

    With the Tonedexter, you play into the unit with an input from your instrument’s pickup at the same time as with an input from a microphone. The resulting wave map is an effort by the Tonedexter to...

    Re: Beware EVOs

    The "5-7 years...if that" is obviously a very broad generalization. Lots of professional musicians get refrets quite often, at least until they resort to stainless steel or gold EVO frets. Here's an...

    Re: Beware EVOs

    Very interesting experience. "Even when not fretted"? That especially seems odd.

    Lots of happy folks using gold EVO. I don't know for sure about other high-end luthiers, but I do know that Tom...

    Re: New Eastman MD-315 or used Kentucky KM-855

    If I had limited income and was trying to only buy one mandolin, for me it would definitely be my Eastman MD315. A surprisingly dark woody tone that I love. Good fit and finish, very playable...

    Don, I think the answer that you want from the Eastman rep is found in your own comments. You say you'd rather buy from someone you trust, like Elderly or the Mandolin Store. That is true for many...

    The mandolin is VERY flexible, whether you want to play melody, chords, melodic-type fill. A great way to expand your mandolin learning is to just take song books with songs you like and learn the...
