    That was awesome. Thanks for the arrangement.
  2. Re: Fishstick vs Bose L1 Compact : A Quick Review

    I own both a model II and a compact with a Tonematch unit. I use the Tonematch pretty much every time with either unit. I agree that it is the most natural sounding system that I’ve ever heard. I...

    Re: Breaking in a Mandolin

    I ordered an Eastman 815V last year and after tuning it up and playing for a few minutes I was ready to send it back. Same type of sound you describe. I kept it over the weekend and played a bunch...

    Re: Shopping for a Breedlove, I think...

    I have a Cascade that I played for about 5 years. I've since gotten a Weber Yellowstone and haven't played the Cascade much. The sound opened up quite a bit after I started playing bluegrass. Its got...
  6. Re: How many are front porch pickers in the summertime

    I so look forward to the warmer weather just to get on the porch and play. I sometimes put a lawn chair in the yard to sit and play while the dog chews a messy bone. I've gotten some strange looks...

    Re: New Mandolin Armrests!

    I recently got a honey colored curly maple for my blonde Breedlove - it looks beautiful on it. I haven't noticed any change with the sound - I don't think I usually put any pressure on the top when...

    Re: looking for a recorder

    I have an Olympus LS-10 - I highly recommend it. My friend has a Yamaha Pocketrak recorder - there are several models less than $200 and they sound good also.

    Re: Eastman delight

    Its interesting that you say its the ugliest, because I just bought an 815V which I was thinking may be the ugliest. I had only seen pictures when I bought it. It's yellow (really yellow) with the...

    Re: 170 Hours is a Long Time

    This thread is like a mosquito bite. The more you scratch it the more it itches.

    I keep telling myself that I won't look at this anymore, but I can't stop. What's wrong with me?

    I've been playing my Breedlove Cascade for about 5 years now and its a very versatile mandolin. I had been mostly playing country, folk-rock type stuff and its perfect for that. This past year I've...
