    Re: Mandolin Considerations -- Add to my List

    Buying used can get you a great instrument for a reasonable price, if you know more or less what you want and what they're worth. Sounds like you're looking to take your time, so that will be to your...

    Re: Did someone say PICKS?

    Holy Smokes! I hope those are being kept in a ventilated container and away from open flames, or that could become a hot mess o' picks! Thanks for sharing that Bratsche - very impressive.

    Congrats on your 10th! That is a very nice sounding rendition of one of my favorite tunes. I thought the whole presentation was quite well done. Did you do the guitar and the recording as well?

    Re: New to me Mandolin day!

    Dude - congrats! Where are the sound clips? How old is that thing? If I remember correctly those cases with the aluminum bands are '70's or 80's? It looks like the back of the neck has a more...

    Re: Looking for opinions of Big Muddy mandolins

    There was a used M4 here for a while and I played it a number of times while I was in the store. I was pleasantly surprised at what a nice instrument it was. It had a somewhat unassuming but I...

    Bummer. My sympathies. My .02 - have a pro reattach it, or leave it off - I hate the way a bad scroll repair looks.

    Re: I'm buying a Mandolin

    Eastman++
    My two most recent favorites of mandolins that I didn't need were a used Eastman MD305 and a new Eastman MD515 varnish. They both played and sounded really great. That 305 was a great deal.

    Nice choice - I think you will really enjoy it. The Eastman 300 series are a really nice instrument for the money. A local dealer had a used 315 for a few weeks, which I played every time I was there...

    Re: Down the Tenor Rabbit Hole... (Help)

    Regarding the Pono UL4-10, it's the same scale length as the octave mando, so I'm guessing that they come in the same kind of really fine archtop case. Since you mentioned traveling, unless you were...
