    Re: Calhoun case?

    Guessing if there was enough demand for them that NF would consider selling one themselves. I haven't played a Calhoun yet but they're very intriguing

    Re: Daughter's New Mandolin!

    awesome, congrats! Wish I could get my 7 year old to be interested in playing, but not going to force it on him. Maybe he'll come around lol.

    Re: Carbon fiber Northfield case?

    That's hilarious, because I just put some of my favorite stickers on my Airloom too after having it for a year. I was planning to buy another Recurve since I had one that is currently while a mando I...

    Re: Carbon fiber Northfield case?

    They are going to be releasing something soon that looks very enticing. Apparently they weren't quite ready for that to start getting attention but hard to keep things a secret these days lol. Adrian...
  5. Re: Northfield F5S consistency (or buying without checking)

    Oh, I will add since someone mentioned the Big Mon, that while the consistency of quality is very good, the sound of the various models can be quite a bit different. i.e. F5S v. Big Mon v. 4th Gen v....

    Re: Northfield Recurve Case

    very interesting...
    My green recurve case is currently with a mandolin I have on consignment, so if it sells I will be looking to replace it with another lightweight option. I did keep the deluxe...
  7. Re: Northfield F5S consistency (or buying without checking)

    I haven't owned an F5S but I bought a 4th gen and an Octave flat top with nothing but a picture to go on. Not a bit disappointed with either one. I haven't played any NFs that I thought were junk. I...

    Re: What is a C2 chord?

    I would guess most of the time they are muting that A string with the finger holding the bass note. I'm sure Tony would use a 9 chord plenty, but guessing Lester would not. Mostly what they are doing...

    Re: To be or not to be (a bluegrass player)

    Outside of the house, yes.
    At home I like to work on jazz, Dawg, choro, Bach. But that's just for my enjoyment. I live in NC so if you want to play with other folks you better play bluegrass.

    Re: Essential David Grisman

    I just picked up a copy of the Svend record for $10 on Discogs. I think I paid $5 for the Grappelli one a while back. I think I have the majority of the Grisman stuff on vinyl now!

    Re: Vintage?

    What year will my Northfield become vintage? It certainly has the quality and look to get there one day. Maybe 2075? I doubt I will live to see the day lol. Of course maybe all wooden instruments...

    Agree with all above, Matt's classes are wonderful. I have taken 5 or 6 classes now with him and they have all been very good. Some are 4 weeks, some are 8 weeks and as mentioned above you get the...

  25. Re: F5 Upgrade Guidance - Gibson, Collings, Northfield

    I absolutely love my 4th gen Northfield. Total different beast from F5S or other models so anyone comparing those is apples and pomegranates.
