  1. Re: Question about 'hybrid' mandolins in old time

    I sold the one I bought. I prefer my A3. Heck, I prefer any A5 over the hybrid I bought.

    Re: "Powerful/Loud!"

    For me? I like knowing the horsepower is there if I need it.

    My struggle; however, is managing the dynamic range. That's the hard part, for me!

    Re: What instrument is the hardest? My experience

    I think the hardest instrument is the larynx followed by the pucker. I mean, think of the 10,000 hrs we invested between the ages of birth and 4 to learn how to operate the larynx. Not everybody...

    congratulations DanG!

    I'm posting to see my count. Heck, I think I started in 2003, so that'd be 16 years! Hard to believe. . .

    Re: '17 A-1 Bridge

    I've kept the original bridge on my A3 for the last 35 years. I did have it adjusted. I've had it lowered. I've had it raised (glue on a shim).

    I did have a luthier replace the one-piece with a...

    Re: Flatiron N1 vs K2

    which one has the 5-latch case? Which one is without adjustable truss rod? Pheff, is spot on. Just a couple of items I'd consider if interested in buying either.

    I'm sure the koa is priced...

    Re: Would you sacrifice tone for playability?

    Thomastic strings are very enjoyable under the fingers!

    EXP74cm strings make a bolder sound.

    I like both.

    Re: Muth Mandolins and transaction payments

    Larry's built two mandolins for me. We'd talk on the phone and swap emails. I'd try going through his web page. What you describe sounds like it's a scam.

    Props to Will Kimble for making a 12-fret oval hole mandolin. None of that hybrid stuff there! That's an eye-catcher for me!

    Re: Looking for a GOOD flat top mandolin

    I'm a fan of the 1N! I had a KM-11 (the one I had had bum tuners.) I preferred the 1N.

    I've owned two 1N's. Loved them both (son in law got the first one, so I replaced it!)

    Like Pops, I had a mandolin shipped to my front door. Just a mandolin in a case with a USPS label stuck on the side.

    Re: Vintage Gibson oval hole

    I've used Thomastik, "Heavy" on my A3 for years! I think the code is 154st.

    I'm now using the EXP-74CM and love them too!
