    Re: Northfield Calhoun

    My Loar is the LM-520 (F-style). It's louder than the Calhoun (A style) and is more conducive to Bluegrass. I love it but it is weaker on the bass end. The Calhoun has a deeper voice with more...

    Re: On holidays. Forgot my pick!

    First thing I did when I got my mandolin is get a leather pickholder from TMS that attaches to my keychain. It hold 3 picks easily. I never go anywhere without my keys so I always have a pick. OTOH,...
