    Re: Ad bumping up - standard practice now?

    Please don't bump up, guys. The MC classifieds--like the rest of the site--are uniquely usable and attractive visually among the instrument forums (fora?); bumping up won't help here. It will just...

    Re: John Cohen 1932-2019

    I'm grateful, though saddened, to learn this here. Mr. Cohen's contributions to my own education, and joy, in music were huge. I'm sorry I never met him to say so.

    IBMA Raleigh

    I've been talking about heading down to Raleigh for the tribal gathering for years, and finally did. It was worth it. Lots of good music, of course, and the chance to play more instruments than I...

    Re: Disappointment

    If it sounds dead now.... You could put it $500, and maybe it'd wake the thing up, or maybe move it along and break even, I guess, but I'd rather not buy a project like that unless I know I could...

    Re: Mandolin Mecca

    I've never been to Lawrence, but as a former Charlottesville resident, I'd rank the former in an altogether higher league.

    C'ville would rank pretty low on the list of places in Virginia by most...

    Agreed. Unlike other things in life, a high quality instrument is worth the interest.

    Re: Live with Anna Tanvir on Harp and Voice

    Loved this. Loved "Silver Dagger" too. My mother wore out Joan Baez records when I was a kid, and this both reminds me of those days and gives me some ideas for my own playing. Thank you.

    That is a day to treasure. And your souvenir of it is enviable itself.

    These are great.

    I wish he'd put out more records for those of us who don't live in NY!

    Thank you for these. Cheered me up!

    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    There are still plenty of Flatirons around for much less. The Calhoun I played at Lowe's was in that tonal category as you'd expect given the design, though the Calhoun was louder than other...

    Agreed with all above sentiments. I had a great time there, and my wallet left well-emptied.

    I'm listening to the Gueikian interview on the new Fretboard Journal podcast. The guy talks like a cartoon businessman, lots of cliche and jargon, but if I can pick through the weeds, sounds mostly...

    Re: Would someone please buy this

    I just got my first Collings--a Honey Amber MF. It's amazing. I can't believe what I've been missing. The idea that this one exists makes me a little sick.

    A better mandolin will make you want to play more. Variety makes you want to play more. You're a hobbyist, so enjoy the hobby for goodness' sake. Part of that enjoyment is exposing yourself to the...

    Re: Northfield Airloom Recurve review

    Another vote for opens all the way. I do not worry about knicking my mando on the case latches as I have with cases that only open 90 (or less) degrees.

    Collings MF in a Recurve case

    Hello All,

    I recently purchased a new MF. It's great. But I don't love the case. It's the standard TKL Collings case, and it's supposed to be great, but it's bulky, and while the relatively...

    I used to own this Schofield. A little bright for me, tone-wise, but a strong instrument with beautiful and funky appointments.
