    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.

    Re: Almost Heaven.. Surprise, Arizona!

    Thanks for the report, Kevin! I agree they are great guys, although I have only dealt with them over the phone. I appreciate their dedication to the instruments we all enjoy.

    Re: Any arguments AGAINST MAS?

    Thanks for the post, Jamie. Sometimes I think we believe is we just have a better instrument, we can magically be a better player.

    Re: Any arguments AGAINST MAS?

    It sounds to me like you may need to buy a little better mandolin, Sherry. Might as well go ahead and do it.

    I have three mandolins here, but two of them have things wrong and are not playable. ...

    Re: 3 hours of practice a day?

    I practice as much as I can, but nowhere near 3 hours a day. I don't see how adults with multiple responsibilities can hide away and practice that much. A kid or student, even college student,...

    Re: Ten Years In
