    Re: The cure for MAS

    I don't think it has to be the either/or (nice mando/crotchety old man) you've described.

    It could be that you've just gotten so used to the particular sound of your mando, that others that sound...

    Re: Blind Pick-Off!

    Auditory challenges are fun but so subjective and difficult to judge (even live). Here's my elav:

    #1 - bright, good tone
    #2 - brightest of the 3, good tone if you like that amount of brightness...

    Re: Secure Endpin?

    I'm not trying to be rude when I say please don't take this advice. Unless I'm dense and missed the sarcasm meant in the first 3 words.

    I would also advise a single wrap of tape on the endpin.

    Re: Obscure, solid Mandolin Players

    Great thread!

    I'll second Kym Warner.
  9. Re: New mandolin question. (eastman, the loar, richwood)

    The Richwood looks good, especially since it comes with a luthier set-up. Otherwise, sight-unseen, I'd tell you to go with the Eastman.

    I'd be worried that the "The Loar" might discourage you,...

    Re: Light Strings

    I'll join the consensus and tell you to just try it out, it's cheap enough.

    You want to start doing expensive string experiments? Try violin strings. (Don't even try to complain to cellists or...

    I've heard nothing but great things about BB.

    I would think that purchasing an instrument and/or lessons from him would be good either way.

    Now I get it

    Sometimes I've wondered why the MC didn't allow for political or social content and threads, as other sites do. Then I adjusted to the way things were on the MC, and thought that it was for the...
  17. Re: What price level and up gets you a "lifelong keeper" mandolin

    I agree with all of this. I would not consider a 00-15 a"lifetime" or "keeper" instrument, but that just shows you how subjective all of this really is. Given that for you, I also agree that an upper...

    Re: Kentucky 272 and my big problem

    I'm not saying that your current infatuation will untimately pass/fade, but it will likely cool off a little. After playing your oval a while, you'll miss the much different sound of your Buckeye,...

    All of the reasons everyone mentioned is why you should definitely do it.

    Also makes it easy to make adjustments in between songs, with your pad right there with you onstage, very unintrusive....

    Re: Need opinions Gibson Flatiron

    Then why even bother chiming in?

    The OP asked for advice, not judgement.

    I thought judgement was saved for the Tone-gard, Bluechip, A vs. F style, and Chinese vs. American-made threads..
