    Re: My mandolin got eaten by a Stratocaster.

    Very good point. I’m not sure why this combination works so well for the tone I like but it does. Serendipity.

    Re: My mandolin got eaten by a Stratocaster.

    I like Fender amps but this Marshall is perfect for the sound I’m going for. I can get a 50s rock/blues tone with no pedals.

    Re: Chinese made mandolins (Northfield?)

    I see your joint date is 2002; there was still a very real stigma in the acoustic world about “Made in China” (or anywhere other than the USA) then. I used to see this a lot on the guitar forums in...

    Re: No motivation

    As someone who has played alone (with very few exceptions throughout the years) for almost 30 years, this is hard for me to understand. I have loved playing with other people when it has happened,...

    Re: My mandolin got eaten by a Stratocaster.

    This should have been titled the "Midlife Meltdown" thread. I kept the Les Paul for a while and enjoyed it, but I honestly felt like a hack with a LP in my hands. I guess because I was an 80s kid,...
  9. Re: When did you realize mandolin was your primary instrument?

    I also had a MIM Stratocaster that I'd had for years. It was setup/modded to the point of being a pretty amazing instrument. I convinced myself around 2006/7 that I'd not play it anymore and sold...

    Re: All of My 2020 Festivals Have Been Cancelled

    I really feel for all the musicians who can’t work now. I’m sure in many (most?) cases, making a living as a musician was tough anyway (unless you’re super famous, which is pretty much no one in the...

    I use LaBella strings on my mandolin and they are kind of hard to find, but SBM always has them.
