    Re: Trinity College TM 325

    I find the 20" scale just about perfect for OMs. I had a TM-375 & a TM-275 for little bit & found them to be wonderful for the price.

    Re: Scale length for Octave Mandolin

    I find the 20" scale to be just about perfect myself. Long enough to sustain but short enough that I can still play melody & 3 finger chords.

    While I haven't played a Northfield myself yet, I don't think you need worry about loving it...more about not being able to put it down! :grin:

    Re: buying tonewood

    A quality bandsaw is an essential tool for a woodshop. Unless you're sure you'll never need the larger throat for anything other than a couple dreads I'd get the best you can afford. You'll have a...

    Re: New Big Muddy - Myrtlewood!?

    Myrtlewood is a wonderful to carve & turn. I'm a fan of streaked fingerboards myself & that one's definitely a winner! Congrats :mandosmiley:

    I had a standard McClung on my MDO-305 & it fit perfectly. I was planning on upgrading the tuners but never got around to it before selling it for an upgrade. It's a great instrument for the price...

    Re: Heads up for you Mandolinists with Cats

    As a kid we had a scare with our dog eating a houseplant so I've been cautious about plants & pets ever since. I have a cactus but that's it for indoor plants!

    Re: What are you playing the blues on?

    Blues is my main genre and I usually play my dolas or my OM but I’ll run scales on the flattop in between songs if I’m getting frustrated :grin:

  20. Re: Good mandolin choice for woman with small hands

    Weber uses a 14” scale so you’re already playing a little longer scale than most other makers. I’m in the reverse camp & love hefty necks and v-shape profile of my Weber dola & OM necks. Finding...
