  1. Re: Off in the weeds on my first mando purchase ...

    Itís been said a lot here that the mandolin you start with wonít be the one you end up with. Iím living proof of that myself. The Eastman 305 is a quality instrument and the nut width isnít...
  2. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'd never heard of this builder and really like what he is making. There is also a definite Hobbit connection with New Zealand that's pretty cool as well.
  3. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    Allen, great post, though the tuned in fifths things still makes no sense, and I'm ok with that. Just wanted to say, I hope you didn't read the reverse snob thing into my post, because, believe me,...
  4. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    I guess I'll go ahead and show a bit of my own ignorance when it comes to musical terminology, etc. It's relevant to this discussion trying to figure out what makes a mandola a mandola, a mandocello...

    Re: Mandolins "Opening Up"

    If instruments do not "open up," then why are the older ones so sought after for their sound (even electric guitars)? Age and play-time bring some kind of mojo to a guitar, mandolin, violin, etc. ...

    Re: String journey on a Collings MT

    Yes, tried Elixirs in mediums. Great strings. Still a tad too much tension for me though.

    Re: String journey on a Collings MT

    Glad this thread has been beneficial. It’s been fun trying new things. Have still not tried any monels, mainly because they will probably be the same tension as most strings, and tension is the...

    Re: String journey on a Collings MT

    The J74s and the flatwound 74s (and all other standard medium strings) are just too heavy for me. I like the lighter feel of med-lights. My mandolin has low action and is set up well, but it’s too...

    Re: String journey on a Collings MT

    Update....

    The La Bellas were great strings, probably my favorites so far. Installed them back in Feb and played them in for a long time. Then I put the mandolin away for a few months. Got it...

    Re: Uh oh THE Gibson may have a problem

    You are correct, sir. I guess I was hung up on how curvy and gorgeous the F-style mandolin is.

    I noticed on the first episode that it ended abruptly (via Apple podcast app), but it didn’t bother me. I listen to hundreds (maybe thousands) of hours of podcasts per year, and I think entirely too...

    Ashley Broder is another one that would be great. She is a fantastic player who doesn't get mentioned nearly enough here.
