    Re: Big muddy m-11 vs morris oval hole

    I had a Morris A4 (arched top oval hole). It had a radiuses fret board. It was a beautiful mandolin. The sound was way different from my Big Muddy-not better or worse just different.

    Re: Am I being to Critical on New Mandolin

    Do what your heart tells you to do. Don't listen to us. If it bothers you now, it will eat at you later. Send it back if that's the case. Good luck with your decision.

    Re: Attention Silverangel owners

    When I got mine, Ken told me he had switched to GHS 270's. That was 3 years ago. He may have switched back. I'm currently using DR Rare mediums. It's the best my SA has ever sounded.

    Well, good luck with that plan. I thought the same thing, but a couple of years on the dobro and my left hand would cramp badly on the bar. Stretching, strengthening, etc, did not bear any fruit,...
