    Did you get a look at the 2017 Girouard Concert A? I shouldn't be looking at it but I can't help myself!

    Trillium longscale mandola demo

    A couple videos with my new Trillium Mandola.

    I've had it about 2 months and it's already my desert island instrument. If I could keep only one, the Trillium would be it.

    Re: Mandolins "Opening Up"

    It's fun to think that a mandolin improves over time. Studies suggest fun is more fun than no fun. Therefore I believe my mandolin will improve vastly as it ages.

    Look here! It's all true!...

    Re: New Northfield/Gilchrist tailpiece-Nice!

    One of the advantages is that it fits the NF-F5S without re-drilling.

    I ordered one. I'm not fond of the cast tailpiece on the MT or NF5S.

    Re: Octave Mandolin Stand

    Hercules for me too. I can get a mando, mandola, and octave on it at the same time.
  7. Re: Lost in the Builders looking for a McClanahan Tone

    I've seen used mandolins going for new or higher prices. I can still see them as they are still for sale.

    I've lost at least a little money on every instrument I've sold for 25 years.

    I think the candy tube is the Strad's version of a rattlesnake tail.

    There's a Lafferty octave for 1250 and a Golden Wood for 1275 on reverb right now. Both accepting offers. The Lafferty is a good deal. The Golden wood is intriguing. It might be a great deal. ...

    Re: Trillium Mandola (new to me)

    Thanks for the info Bob. I'm really enjoying it. I'll be happy to get a wound second course on. The .017 was plain steel and I think you get a richer sound out of a wound string.

    My wife just...

    Re: Irish Mandolin Recordings

    Marla's solo work was mentioned but I want to highlight A Bright Hollow Fog. It's very mando-centric and recommended. Perfect breakfast music.

    I've used Strings by Mail, Just Strings, and Strings and Beyond. I'd give em all a thumbs up!
