    Re: Higher Education for Mandolin

    John-

    Thank you for this information, much appreciated. I hope you are right that this will open more doors for classical mandolinists in the future. We sure need more opportunities here in the US.

    Re: Material Below the Bridge

    I have always liked the shoelace/leather better than the grommets myself, I just wasn't sure if there was a specific benefit to one or the other. I have not heard of the chunks of wood (I own a Weber...

    Material Below the Bridge

    My old mandolin teacher used to use a shoelace that he would weave in-between my strings below the bridge (right above the tailpiece). Since I've gotten my new mandolin I have not put anything down...
