    Re: My First Collings!

    I'm not a big fan of sunbursts on mandolins, but this one looks really nice. I like that it's a subtle transition between the two colors giving it an antique look.

    Re: Do you take your mandolin out of the house?

    I may never buy an expensive mandolin just for this reason. I'd probably be too afraid of damaging it.

    But with my current mandolin (km 172) I'm unafraid to take it anywhere, unless there are...

    Re: mandolin popularity

    Personally I don't want the mandolin to ever become mainstream. I am happy with it flying under the radar if it means I don't ever have to see a Disney manufactured teen heartthrob serenading...

    Re: Buzzing somewhere - Help!

    Thanks OS.

    Hopefully it's something I can figure out on my own. Otherwise I hope getting a single fret fixed isn't too pricey.

    Re: Buzzing somewhere - Help!

    I've been getting buzzing on my g string as well, but only at the seventh fret, and nowhere else.

    It's a bit disappointing as I'd hoped that would have been taken care of with the "pro set up" the...

    Re: What made you start playing mandolin?

    I didn't even know what a mandolin was until about an hour before I bought one.

    For a long time I had considered learning an instrument, but never made any effort to start until last Nov when I...

    Welcome. Like you I am new to the mandolin (3 months), and didn't play any instruments prior.

    Definitely a lot of info to absorb on these forums.

    Re: Worth a look

    Yeah. These guys are great. I just discovered them only a couple of days ago when I ran across their Smooth Criminal video on youtube.

    I wonder how much money they spend on bows.

    Re: Proud Kentucky Pickers - Let's see 'em!!

    Same to you Mark. I had originally wanted to get the 174, but the Mandolin Store only had the 172 in stock at the time. In hindsight I'm glad I went with it as I love the colors, but I might also be...

    It was wedged down in the cushions of my computer chair. Only figured it out after my other wegen pick tried to do the same. I guess they missed each other.

    Re: I'm a victim of pick goblins

    I shook my mandolin... and then shook it a second time just to make sure. No luck.

    Anyone ever notice that the picks you don't like don't mercifully disappear? I swear I could throw these Dawg...

    I keep losing my picks (my mind might be following suit). I practice exclusively in what is approximately a 15x15 foot area, and despite this tiny space I keep losing picks. I recently bought two...

    Re: Cumberland Bridge

    Would there be significant improvement when added to lower end mandolins (Kentucky km 172)?

    Do higher end models, say the km-1000, have better bridges to begin with, or do all kentucky's have the...
