    Re: Dreaming of a Great A5 under $6000

    I wasn't going to say that. Don't get a Duff, they are terrible. or a Ruhland, terrible value. (You should actually get either of those) Kimble's are great too. Lot's of great A5s under $6000.

    Re: Beginner getting into Bluegrass

    If you want to learn Bluegrass a great starting point is Monroe, as that is the roots. Early on that felt pretty inaccessible to me. A great entry point for me was Bluegrass Album Band. That is real...

  5. Re: Play with backup tracks, sing with mp3s. Looking for new sour

    If you are on Facebook, look up Tyler Grant Music. He has been hosting playalong jams every monday night at slow, mid, and fast tempos. And they are all archived on his page. It is pretty fun.

    Re: "Playing the circle of fifths"

    There are certainly songs that travel through a bit of it, although I am far from an expert on the matter.

    Re: Ellis, Pava, or Collings MT2

    My Duff is a 2017. I've had it for 3 years. It is an A model and at the time it was headed to Carter's with a batch of 4 mandolins. I know there have been several batches since, but haven't seen...

    Re: Ellis, Pava, or Collings MT2

    The Ellis I owned had no challenges with volume or being heard in large jams or in a full bluegrass band. I do agree that they tend to have a darker and more low end emphasis. I sold the Ellis when I...

    Re: Ellis, Pava, or Collings MT2

    Re: How to build a solo?

    As everyone is saying learn the melody. See if you can pick out key points of the melody that you need to play to make the song identifiable, without playing all the other connecting notes. Use those...

    Re: Solo builders

    I'm not sure of Ruhland's current F5 prices, but I would think it would be under 6k new. I really can't recommend him enough. I have been playing my A5 he build a lot recently and it is a total...

    Re: Tone Dexter users?

    Are you implying that everybody is going to get rid of their pre-amps and pickup'ed mandolins in favor of a Zeta mandolin? It will be nice to have that option, but I don't think it will have such an...
