    Re: Kimble or Duff F5?

    I'd choose the Kimble... for me the Duff is a little too "woofy" whereas the Kimble has that nice balance between warm and clear without being too bright or too hollow sounding. As Lynn "The Dude"...

    Re: Kimble or Duff F5?

    Re: D'Addario picks?

    A pick to a mandolinist is what a bow is to a violinist. No more, no less. Blue Chip picks are at the top end of commercially made pick prices and they cost around $40.00 with shipping. The best of...

    Re: Dreaming of a Great A5 under $6000

    I wouldn't mess with a Givens. No truss rod = future potential neck problems. Also this... even Givens A6 is not in the same class as a Kimble, Ellis, Northfield A5 Special etc...

    it looks like a total "Frankenstein" made up of an old Ibanez 2 point with a new, badly made neck/headstock assembly... i mean i didn't even look at all the pictures, but it certainly isn't a Gibson...

    Re: What to expect, F5S?

    The folks at Northfield are continually doing amazing things and have accomplished much in a relatively short period of time.

    MD504 is a HUGE bang for the buck. A number of my students have gone for the Eastman A-model oval holes (504 and 604) and have never looked back. The KM150 used to be really good, but I have fallen...

    Personally, I don't think the human race will be here even 100 years from now. So go ahead... buy or sell your signed Lloyd Loar F5 while there's still time!
