    Re: Conversion from cheap 6 string

    Great work guys!... I did the same with an old classical ... I wasn't as big of a fan. Mine started as a 23" scale and I shoved the bridge forward to make it roughly a 20" scale... it looks nicer...

    Re: A-type oval hole mandolin for $500?

    Welcome to Mandolin Mecca! Any one of those recommendations is good (not a fan of Washburn though). Sometimes you can find a used Crystal Forest Mandolin in that budget.

    Re: Attention Silverangel owners

    Its been a couple of days since I put the strings on and I can say that I DO like them. But I am trying to be subjective enough to admit that I am honestly not sure if there is a real difference or...

    Re: Attention Silverangel owners

    I was due to change my strings so I took a shot and ordered the J75's... I can tell a difference. ...It may be just new strings, but usually I am not a fan of the sound of new J74's and like it...

    Re: The virus, the economy, mandolins and you

    A friend of my wife shared this CS Lewis quote (Circa 1948) with her a little while ago and I think it applies well here:

    Re: How to approach practicing and improvement?

    I try hard to spend some time with a metronome regularly, particularly if I'm working on a typically fast played tune. You'll be amazed at how that can help you grow, even just with practicing scales.
