    Re: Potential USA Recesssion?

    No, but then I wasn't considering a purchase either. I haven't changed my spending habits as a result of an economic forecast. Weathermen and women get their forecasts correct more frequently than...

    Re: Why the connection?

    Well, I don't play banjo, so they would be wrong in making that assumption with me. However, it seems that when I read the Bluegrass Unlimited magazine, many of the musicians mentioned play several...
  5. Re: Mandolin Orange and NPR's tiny desk concert

    I watched that yesterday morning and loved it. They really have a great mix of acoustic instruments, voices and fabulous songs! The sound quality was quite good too. I'm not familiar with the mic...

    Re: Some days are like that . . .

    Before I became totally self-employed, I worked in an office where things got stressful at times. I did the same thing with my harmonica...sat in the car with the windows open under a shade tree and...

    Re: Sellerís Remorse - 2008 custom Weber Fern

    Good news! I hope it works out. I sold a 60's Fender Princeton amp for the same reason and later wished I had it back. I know the guy who I sold it to and have seen him many times and have...

    Re: If You Don't Perform In Public....

    I agree, Bertram. I love playing music with other folks. You get interaction and ideas that couldn't happen all by yourself. If that counts for public, then I'm in...

    I've never understood the assumption that because you enjoy playing music that you must do it in public.

    Re: If You Don't Perform In Public....

    I think you've hit the nail on the head, Greg. We notice these things, but not many others. That still makes it worth it to have the best instrument you can afford to enjoy. I am the most...

    Re: If You Don't Perform In Public....

    Performing in public is not the end goal for me. I have done it in the past and it was fine, but kind of like a second job that took a lot of my time away from home.

    I play music for my own...
  14. Re: What is the most mandolins you've owned at one time?

    I briefly had 2 after I bought a new one and hadn't sold the other one yet. Just one works for me, but that doesn't mean I won't upgrade again at some point.

    Re: Odd Ebay Mandolin Picture

    That is the biggest mandolin I have ever seen! Hilarious.
  18. Re: Played a Loar F5 for the first time and met Mike Compton

    That is a cool experience. You must have had a huge grin on your face as you walked out of there with a great new mandolin and having had the time spent with Mike Compton. Thanks for sharing.

    Your drawing is quite well done with the contrasts in light and dark. Here is another I did recently. I have been doing this just about a year, so I still have much to learn.

    Re: New Eastman MD-315 or used Kentucky KM-855

    Both are good instruments in that price range, so you can't go wrong. If it ends up being your final mandolin, you may be the only person on this site who buys just one during their mando playing...
