    Bromberg has been doing 3 mandolin numbers in his show since the mid 70s. Good to see that he is back at it.

    I've enjoyed my Flatiron Performer F5 since I bought it new in '93. When I was in a band, I got compliments on the tone from other mandolin players at gigs, but that may have more to do with the dual...

    I think the finish is fairly thick, but the chipping removed some of the wood when the point piece tore off, and that may exaggerate the perception of depth. I wish my phone pic was better...
