    Re: How much do you practice?

    Not enough practice, and been playing mandolin for 5 years. Shelter at home notwithstanding, I am an "essential employee" with two jobs, and still not enough time.

    Re: Monteleone F on classifieds

    That's a good recommendation for the quality of the instrument, and honest play wear. Sounds like the buyer is getting a well-loved instrument. To whoever got it (if on the Cafe site) -...

    Re: Dreaming of a Great A5 under $6000

    As one who owns a Pava, I will agree that they are excellent (and I need nothing better,) but if I suddenly become wealthy an an Ellis 2-point happened into my path, well, I wouldn't say "no." And I...
  4. Re: Reading mandolin music score by NOT using TABS

    I read music also (started with piano,) and at times find TAB annoying. At times it can be useful though, as sometimes I have difficulty figuring out the most efficient fingering for a passage, and...

    Re: Shipping in 2020

    Thanks for the "heads-up" on the cost of shipping. I have debated periodically on selling my the Loar LM-220, which is worth about $200. If it costs me $100 to ship it, I'll just keep it. It doesn't...

    Re: Describe your MAS progression

    Started with a the Loar LM 220, and leaped right up to a Pava player, Weber oval, and Collings MT (plus a few bowlbacks) MAS is now satisfied.
    Forgot a Kentucky KM 805 (my only F-style) that I...
  8. Re: how much should I offer for this mandolin

    Looks (from the pictures) it is in pretty good condition. The armrest is nice touch, I like them (since I bought a mandolin with one on it and I find it makes them more comfortable.) If the person...

    Re: Why do you like the picks you like?

    I prefer thinner picks - I started on guitar before I came to mandolin, and used thinner picks on guitar, and it seems to have stuck. I can't stand "pick noise," so I prefer a Blue Chip TD 35 or TD...

    Re: First Classical Song

    Not sure if your dog likes or is bored by mandolin-playing! Too cute! LOL!!
  12. Re: Could someone help me identify this old bowl back?

    The wood is pretty dried out on the fretboard, but it doesn't look in terrible shape. It's cool that you have the case! (Unusual to have the case with bowlbacks.) It looks like higher quality than a...
  13. Re: Looking for Mandolin Recommendations that hold their value

    The KM-805 is older, I don't remember what year it is (recent but not new.) It's a nice instrument to take to jams, where I won't mind if it gets a ding or two. If I know the jam, I will usually take...
  14. Re: Looking for Mandolin Recommendations that hold their value

    I have a Kentucky KM-805 (F-style), as well as a Collings MT and a Pava player. I got the Collings MT used for $2200, there is no comparison between the Kentucky and the Pava and Collings. Don't get...
  15. Re: Article: Amid Constant Change The Mandolin Store Flourishes

    Dennis, all good thoughts and wishes for you! You told me years ago that I would be happy with either the Pava or the Weber, so I bought both and am still happy with both - and hopefully I will get...
  16. Re: Appendectomy: Trust Your Gut (some mandolin content)

    Glad you are on the mend. I had my appendix out at age 6 (spent my 7th birthday in the hospital,) 59 years later I have never missed it. One less thing to go wrong now. Enjoy your practice time,...
  17. Re: 2 Oval=Holes With Different Feels and Voices

    My 3 main mandolins all have different sounds, I use them for different situations. I COULD use one for all types of music, but I prefer to use the one best suited for the music I want to play, and...
  18. Re: Looking for a case for a bowlback mandolin

    Elderly Instruments still offers a chipboard bowlback case. They used to have a fiberglass bowlback case (I bought one from them) but I don't see it on their website right now.

    Re: Top-rated mandolins for 2020

    Wow! Just - WOW!! It MIGHT have been accurate if it said "top-rated STARTER mandolins of 2020 in our opinion." I did think it was pretty humorous, though.

    Re: Virtual Tours

    Thanks to you all - I took the Elderly tour several times and never found the mandolins, only lots of guitars. I play guitar too, but I wanted to see the mandolins. Now I have seen them. I need to...

    Re: G.Pugsili Reale & Figli incrustation

    Those are so fancy! My Puglisi (my favorite of my bowlbacks) is a "plain Jane," but it still sounds great. I am going to keep my eyes open for a fancier one.
  22. Re: I have read other threads and i am still confused- newbie man

    I started with a used The Loar LM 220, paid $200, it was (and is, I still have it) a useful instrument that I quickly outgrew. I keep it to loan to people who think they want to play mandolin. I...

    Re: $25,000 Gibson on FaceBook Marketplace

    I'd give $500 for it. Do you suppose he's just got the decimal point off a bit?
