    Re: Mandolin Orange on today Show

    Finally able to watch the clip from the Today show.

    First thought: "Gawd, they reverb'd the sh** out of that..."

    Re: Mandolin Orange on today Show

    According to his IG, it's a "new" old Gil ('84)

    Re: Andrew Marlin's Pick

    He's had that Loar about 6 months or so. They deserve each other.

    Re: Is my MAS dead?

    My MAS was beaten into submission when the box arrived from Ohio with my Kimble A inside. I now have the perfect kid brother for my Northfield F5S. I don't even cruise the Classifieds anymore.

    Coming from guitar/bass, I started playing mandolin with a guitar pick. I soon got into the Traveling Pick Sampler here and that really opened my ears as to how much difference in tone the pick...

    There are several posts on Andrew's IG account where Wegen (TF 100) picks are clearly shown, and another where he mentions that he tried out some Red Bear picks. All of those are larger,...

    ...perfect. I've only had my new A (#266) for a couple months, but it has far surpassed even my admittedly high (and probably unfair) expectations.

    Re: Looking for beginner mandolin.

    Re: Kentucky KM-1050 vs Northfield F5S

    PM me next time you are heading up. Most Saturdays through the winter there are Taborgrass sessions, and that's a good chance to get to hear a few different mandos.

    Andrew has announced a (short!) series of West Coast dates with the BIAC crew this December.

    Great reading! The photos are a nice bonus.
