    Re: "Super" Brand Ovation Mandocello

    Ovation never distributed an import mandocello, just the USA made in Connecticut which was closed in 2014. I believe they even stopped making custom mandolins and mandocellos even before that. There...

    Excuse the literary humor, but looks to me more like the work of Jonathan Swifts' "Big-Endians."
  8. Re: Which higher priced F style models have solid wood scrolls?

    Perhaps we can temper the discussion with a higher degree of civility. For some, experience is everything, for others it's all about math and most, a smattering of each. That alone opens the doors to...

  23. Re: Tenor Banjo suggestion for beginner Mando player

    One of the best pieces of advise I got when buying my first tenor banjo was to upgrade the head. You can make a huge improvement just by spending another $25-35 on a Fibreskyn head right off the bat.
