    Re: Ever just love the sound of your mandolin?

    The sound of my mandolin cures MAS every time. When I feel the urge, I play my mandolin and think how can it sound better than this.
  9. Re: Ever just love the sound of your mandolin?

    Pre Covid I would routinely go to Dusty Strings, a Seattle music store that has a nice stock of nicer mandolins. Sure I would lust over different, newer, nicer instruments... but really, most often I...

    Re: Pick Samplers Still Circulating?

    The short answer is 'No'. They are not still circulating and haven't been since late 2019.

    Re: Eastman MD 614

    Hi Caleb, that’s very similar to mine, both the original finish and the older style peghead (they switched to snakeheads about 2011). I picked it from a wallful of them at 12th Fret, cause it just...

    I remember sending them and I am glad you are enjoying. I use them for classical or whenever some brilliance and scintillation are needed. Another brand to try for similar effects is Dogal.
