    I'm planning on keeping the Model M so unfortunately the 4th Gen is out of reach :( I play in a lot of groups and do a good bit of recording so two axes is a nice fail safe in case one needs a set up...

    Re: Mandola scale length

    Interesting, I find a 17" scale almost the perfect length - of course you can't play closed mandolin chord shapes on that scale, but for folky open chord shapes and tune playing I'd say it would be...

    New mandola, actually. I own a Pomeroy oval hole mandolin that Don Paine built for me last February. It is the sweetest mandolin I’ve ever owned or played. So, I commissioned Don to make a matching...

    Re: Loar K-5 Mandocello

    Spruce has a Paul Duff K5 that's pretty cool. I remember trying out Petri Hakala's mandocello before he bought it ... I think it's a Fletcher Brock? I drool over a Roger Bacorn K5 that belongs to...

  14. A new Stromberg-Voisinet inspired mandolin

    A post about a 1920s Stromberg-Voisinet mandolin a few weeks back reminded me that I had traced the body and head outline when I did a bit of work on one a few years ago. So here is perhaps the first...

    Eastman or Kentucky tend to be the better bets in that price point. Some feel that Kentuckys have more of the "traditional" Gibsonesque sound and the Eastmans more "modern". Some Eastmans are...
