  1. Re: Luthier Paul Hostetter has passed away

    I remember Paul's long time contribution to the cafe fondly and he will be missed. He's one of those rare gem that makes the cafe, and the musical community at large, such a great place. I only wish...

    Re: Two Stanley V-5 Mandolins

    Just FYI - Carter's from 2016. And that one piece back is just gorgeous. If I have the coin I'd probably order both and see which one I like more.

    That's stunning. Congrats Daryl.
  4. Re: Adam Steffey steps away from the business

    Am I remembering correctly that he and his wife have young children of their own? (Wikipedia confirmed twin boys born 2011). Maybe just done with all the touring and want to be close to home with the...

    Re: Alec Finn RIP

    I was saving the TG4 piece on Alec Finn so I can watch it properly this weekend without interruption, and now it'll be such a bittersweet farewell to one of my longest standing musical hero. He will...

    Re: Pava Mandolins

    I've had a lot of mandolins come and go, but I still miss Pava #52. It definitely prefer a 0.016 on the A, and I think that's what they are shipped with. I used a TAD60 on mine primarily as it seemed...
  7. Re: Joining the Girouard club - commissioned a build!

    I'm late to the party as I don't check in as often as I used to. Congrats on the new custom build Jill. If you are curious about an F-hole Girouard, you can check in with Sylvan in Santa Cruz and see...

    Re: Skip Kelly Mandolins?

    Search for Skip Kelley. Fantastic mandos from what I hear. The builder is active on the forum.
  9. Re: Why is the Kentucky KM900 being discontinued?

    Agreed. I would take a used A9 / MT / Pava over a Kentucky any day. Esp. if they are the same price.

    But then again, maybe we are seeing the mandolin market moving up the price ladder again. The...

    Re: Tommy Peoples RIP

    Truly one of the greatest. Just earlier this year I was trying to relearn the tune Tommy Peoples Reel but never quite got there. I'll going to give it another try in his honor.
  11. Re: Why is the Kentucky KM900 being discontinued?

    I remember they used to pop up in the classifieds for around $600 shipped back in the good old days. In fact I'd bought and sold a number of them. All good sounding mando, and great for the money....

    Re: Cheaper Alternative to TP40?

    I was going to suggest Ultex since it's very similar to Primetone, but Tom beat me to it.

    Also not sure if someone else had mentioned but you can get 1mm Primetone also, just not in the big...

    Do post it in the classifieds section. The forum is not for meant for ads.

    My first serious instrument was a Fylde Cittern. Roger makes wonderful instruments.

    Is this sort of the new Zouk Fest? I know the old one used to be in NM for a while too.

    Re: Pava

    Congrats Greg. The Pava is a wonderful mandolin and I know you will be blown away by it. I still miss mine. Like Mark above I couldn't believe I let mine go either.
  17. Congrats! You'll love it no doubt.

    Re: Your MAS Progression

    I'm much more of a gearhead than I'm a player, so I went through quite a few in the last 15 years or so. Here are a few that I'll always remember:

    I don't do a lot of instrument shipping (anymore :) ) but I always put Fragile stickers on. Sounds like I really should stop doing that in the future. However, is there any concern that if I don't...

    Re: New case for KM-950

    I'm a huge fan of the Travelite. It's affordable, fits well, easy to carry, and offers excellent protection from getting banged around or dropped.
