    Re: What's up with USPS?

    Garsh, USPS is my favorite carrier! UPS tosses my boxes, and FedEx takes one look at the stairs leading up to my house and drives off, marking my packages as "undeliverable".

    Hi Folks!

    Beginner here, progressing happily into my second month with my Mando! I'm thoroughly enjoying playing every day, and I've finally got the finger strength and calluses to do a few light...

    Hey folks!

    I received Sampler #2 last week and WOW was I surprised by the variety and quality of picks to try out!

    I'm a beginner, and I'm one of the guys you read about that is frustrated...

    As opposed to this one...which I'll deem "adequately distasteful". Good luck, post pics!

    Re: New Strap!

    Thanks for the compliments folks! It was fun and easy to make, and is proving to be functional and reliable. Pals sometimes have a hard time with how ugly it looks, but it's growing on them :)

    New Strap!

    It didn't take very long before my shoestring strap broke... luckily I caught my instrument before it fell.

    I have quite a bit of 500lb paracord leftover from other projects, so I figured I'd...

    First Mando - Eastman 304

    Hey Folks!

    Thanks a great deal for your advice! I went with an Eastman 304 that I purchased (also at the behest of many) from The Mandolin Store. Price was certainly right, and my first impression...
  10. Re: Newbie here, suffering from analysis paralysis

    It arrived yesterday! Definitely must have been an issue with my email address, I didn't get any shipping updates but it showed up right on time, very nicely set up, very excited! I'll post a...

    Re: The Traveling Pick Sampler - Anyone Interested?

    What a fantastic idea! I'm coming from the world of guitar and I've never been into picking. Please add me to the list, transitioning to picking is definitely weird for me and this will be incredibly...
  13. Re: Newbie here, suffering from analysis paralysis

    I'll keep yinz updated when it arrives! Perhaps there was a miscommunication with my email address over the phone, I was told I'd be sent shipping info when it shipped out, but no dice so far. I'll...
  14. Re: Trigger Pulled - Eastman 304 on it's way!

    That's QUITE a list! Thanks very much for the list!
  15. Trigger Pulled - Eastman 304 on it's way!

    Hey folks!

    My very first mandolin is on its way, thanks in great part to all of you who have provided a great deal of information about quality beginner instruments on my post and on the forums in...
  16. Re: Newbie here, suffering from analysis paralysis

    Thanks for all of your help folks! My ears have been smoking as my brain works overtime, but I've finally made a decision and gave the Mandolin Store a call.

    Shipping out tomorrow will be my new...
  17. Re: Newbie here, suffering from analysis paralysis

    This is great to hear! A New Yorker seems to dial into everything that I want out of a starter mando. I'd prefer an oval soundhole, but even the Park Avenue model seems to be a real bargain!

  18. Re: Newbie here, suffering from analysis paralysis

    Thanks for the heads up! I'm not the most computer-current guy in the world and I never thought to give the Facebook Marketplace a try. I will surely do so!
  19. Re: Newbie here, suffering from analysis paralysis

    Thanks so much for confirming that flat tops will very likely fit my style and price range! The search continues to expand!

    Unfortunately I must have clicked too late. Unless I'm doing something...
  20. Re: Newbie here, suffering from analysis paralysis

    Thanks for the warm welcome Bill!

    I'm definitely strongly pulled to the Celtic/Euro Folk sound!

    Oval-soundhole really seems to be where I'm leaning heaviest. The S8 looks great and is...
  21. Re: Newbie here, suffering from analysis paralysis

    Thanks Chuck!

    I think that "Stop worrying and just buy one" is some fantastic advice, and probably something that I badly was in need of hearing :)

    Not being in the biggest hurry, I'm trying...
  22. Re: Newbie here, suffering from analysis paralysis

    Great to know, thanks for the story and advice! Seems I can't really go wrong with even the lowest tier modern Kentucky. It's been refreshing to learn that some companies are able to maintain a...
  23. Re: Newbie here, suffering from analysis paralysis

    Thanks very much for the advice! The more I search, listen and learn, the more I'm coming to the conclusion is that at this price point, the differences in A-design mandos seem to be fairly trivial...
  24. Re: Newbie here, suffering from analysis paralysis

    I love your username! Thanks for the suggestion! My preference would be a gigbag, but who knows what shopping around may turn up?

    Very good to know, thank you!
