  1. Re: CMHF Historical Instrument Concert with Monroe’s F5

    I remember a time when getting to hear Monroe's mandolin played again would have elicited some excitement around here. Strange times we're living in. Strange indeed.....
  2. CMHF Historical Instrument Concert with Monroe’s F5

    Last night the CMHF aired their fundraiser that showcased some of the historical instruments they care for. So great to hear them in the hands of some modern day masters. Monroe’s old F5 sounded...

    Re: Kimble two point reviews?

    I only know of one oval two pointer. Made to resemble Jethro’s two point. It’s a great mandolin. There could be others. He made 2-3 F4s and a larger number of oval A models. Will quit making ovals...

    Re: I don't like F styles. Anyone else?

    I have one of each. If an F-style is uncomfortable, you're holding it wrong. Don't push the point into your leg. Let the flat part of the lower point rest on the side of your leg. I have no use...

    Re: Ups insurance a ripoff

    I had UPS deny a claim when they packed the whole guitar, in the case and in their own box! USPS is the only one to lose an instrument. Had a Kimble A5 lost for about a week before it showed up in a...

    Re: What’s after a Kentucky KM-1050?

    If you're willing to go used watch the classifieds and start learning what things go for. $7k will buy you a lot of used mandolin. Also, decide on the tone you're after. Do you want that...
