    Re: Collings MT vs Pava A

    You really should play before you buy to find the sound you are looking for. The Pava I owned was very sweet sounding, but on the quiet side. The MT I have is the best mandolin for me; it sounds...

    Re: Update From The Mandolin Store

    I only purchased a couple of times from TMS. Dennis was great to deal with - helpful, friendly and honest. I am sure those attributes flowed from his father.

    Best wishes to Dennis and his...

    Re: Chinese made mandolins (Northfield?)

    I have learned that everyone’s taste is different as every mandolin is different. It really does not matter much to me where a mandolin is made/assembled. It is the sound and playability that grab...

    Re: What strings are you currently playing?

    I try different strings (different gauges, metal, etc.) once in a while, but always come back to J74s on my MT and Thomastick Mittels on my old A2 oval hole.

    Re: Jam with Jake Workman- Cherokee Shuffle

    That was great! Speed and timing (which I struggle with) were excellent.

    My 1906 A4 has a scarf jointed neck (pretty sure it is original) but it is in the opposite direction.

    Re: Collings MT Prices

    I have have/had many mandolins (Gibson, Weber, Pava, Summit, Northfield, etc.).

    My MT is a lifetime keeper! No better value in my opinion - the Northfield F5S is close behind as far as value.

    I am not sure of your budget, but two great choices which would be:
    Collings MT (A)
    Northfield F5S (F)

    An MT was my first really good mandolin. Many have come and gone, but the MT is like a...

    Thanks Mike - I'll bet the Asbury Park Press mentioned the Springsteen sighting. We were in the balcony so I could not see Lowell well behind the piano and back-up singers.

    Watson's Blues is fun. Check out the version by Don Julin and Billy Strings.
  25. Re: thinking about getting a mandolin looking for advice

    Putting aside the handmade / factory discussion, a preowned Collings MT with wide nut option is a great choice.
