    Re: New Northfield Big Mon on it's way.

    I’ve played a number of Northfields, and have owned my F5S for 5 years. They’re great mandolins.

    Re: Weber Bitterroot Cedar Top

    Can’t speak for cedar-topped mandolins, as I’ve knowingly played one. However, cedar-topped guitars tend to have a darker, warmer sound than one spruce-topped ones.

  5. Re: Mandolin Recommendations - Beginner to Intermediate

    I’ve played a fair number of Kentucky and Eastman mandolins. My first mandolin (after a failed start with a Savannah) was a KM162. It was OK. Not great, but it got me started. However, the flat...

    Tuner button about to crack?

    Hi folks,

    one of the tuner buttons on wife's KM1000 has developed a crack (which is visible, and you can feel it with a fingernail). Just wondering what the best course of action is?

    It's on...

    Re: "Brain Flatulence" when playing

    We all drop the odd clanger from time to time. Just bear in mind that to you, it stands out a mile, as the note you got Horrendously wrong. To the people listening, it’s just a single note (That...

    Re: What to expect, F5S?

    Expect a beautifully constructed mandolin with quality woods. Satin finish, which I think looks great - kind of like an old nitro instrument, but without all the lacquer cracks!

    A really rich...

    Re: "Playing the circle of fifths"

    Everyday by Buddy Holly has a chorus that has a really interesting progression, where each chord is the 4th of the previous chord, for 4 chords in a row. So, if you were playing it in D the chorus...
  13. Re: Comparison video of the Loar LM-400 vs the Eastman 605

    I personally prefer a radius - it’s just a lot more comfy for my hands. There are many players who can swap between flat and radius without missing a beat. But, for me, a flat board just feels...

    Re: Eagle mandolin

    It only appears to have 6 frets! The others look they’ve been removed - check out the OP’s second photo.
  16. Re: Comparison video of the Loar LM-400 vs the Eastman 605

    Eastmans fretboards have a gentle radius, and smaller frets. The Loars are dead flat with larger frets.

    Re: Just bought my first mandolin!

    Have played a couple of Ratliffs for a few minutes. Both were really good instruments. Assuming that it’s properly set up, you’re beginning your mandolin journey with a quality instrument.

    Re: new mando choices

    Well, you do have to bear in mind that the mandolin in the video is electric, and it does appear to be plugged in, so you’re probably not getting a natural acoustic sound. Possibly acoustic in the...

    Re: new mando choices

    Have played a couple of Fyldes for a few minutes. They’re decent instruments. However, you need to be aware that there’s a fret marker up at the 9th fret, rather than the 10th. Apparently the guy...
