    Re: What?

    Re: Thank you Scott and Dan!

    I agree. I know from what you wrote that the attempted switch was a nightmare. Thank you for sticking it out and for what you do for Mandolin players and wannabe's from all around the world.

    Re: Beginner Celtic mandolin

    Welcome to the Cafe, Spawndn72! I wound up with an Eastman MD505 and like it very well. I'm not sure how it would perform with Irish music, though.
