    Nicely played. You’ve really pulled some great tone from that Eastman too.

    Re: Kimble or Duff F5?

    That is a hard choice as they both sound amazing. The Duff has a pleasing warmer tone, reminds me a bit of Grisman’s crusher. There is something about that Kimble though. It has more clarity and note...

    Re: Describe your MAS progression

    I started out with a cheepo from a pawn shop. I can’t even recall the brand. My first nice mandolin was a 88 RL Givens, which I still love and enjoy. Since then I've purchased several more A styles,...

    Re: Dreaming of a Great A5 under $6000

    I wouldnít write off a Givens based on the truss rod. Iíve had mine for over 10 years had no issues. I also have a Pava A5 that is great, but if I had to keep only one it would be the Givens, it is...

    Re: New Frets!

    I want to replace the frets on my 21 A at some point. My other modern mandolins have the larger fret wire but I think that would be unnatural looking on the vintage mandolin. Do they make a fret wire...

    Re: How to build a solo?

    Play as much as you can, learn as many fiddle tunes as you can and practice learning and playing by ear. As others have mentioned, if you know the melody its a great starting place. Playing in a jam...

    Re: Kevin Bacon on mandolin.

    Now I have another reason to like Kevin Bacon. Maybe we could play the seven degrees to Kevin Bacon game but with mandolin brands instead of actors.

    That was hypnotic. The tone of the mandolin brought to life by her flawless technique really shines! Thanks!

    Happy birthday David. Your collaborations with Jerry Garcia acted as the gateway drug into the world of bluegrass for me as a young man. I now also partially blame you for my love of swing Jazz....
  14. Re: Do You Play ALL of Your Mandolins Regularly?

    I have 4 mandolins. 2 get played very regularly. One barely gets played and I think I need to sell it. It is a great mandolin and was my primary mandolin for several years that I used for...

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. This site has been such a positive daily experience in my life. Most of my other time I spend online is reading the news and that gets downright depressing. Mandolin...
  16. Re: Jazz mandolin/violin duet from Aaron Weinstein

    Excellent as usual Aaron! I just listened to a few of your albums last weekend. I really enjoyed 3 x 3 ( I might be wrong on the title) , especially the mandolin tracks.

    Re: A. Lawrence Smart Mandolins

    I own a Smart F5 and it is a very well made mandolin. Beautifully constructed with an exquisite voice. Mine is a bit newer, 2014 so I can’t really speak to older Smart mandolins. Here’s a clip of...

    Re: Campanella Mandolins

    Iím also curious about your mandolin journey. You were desperately seeking a certain Stiver, and now your selling one in the classifieds. Is the Campanella just the flavor of the week?

    I want it loud enough, but responsiveness and tone both across the strings and up the neck are more important to me than pure volume. Iíve played some mandolins that were very loud but the tone...

    Re: Pomeroy mandolins

    I have a Givens that has a very small neck. I believe the nut is barely an inch wide. I find it very comfortable to play. They are not the inexpensive though, but they sound fantastic.

    Re: Gibson A4 1921 Paddle Head

    Seems like a pretty fair price, but that crack looked pretty bad. I have a 1921 A4 as well and I love it. It has a woody growl on the low end and beautiful sparkling notes on the high end. One thing...
  25. Re: St. Anne's Reel -2019 National Mandolin Champion

    Congratulations on your win! You have a beautiful playing style. The melody just flows between the cross picking, mini-chords and bass runs all with a very strong note intonation and chime.
