    Re: The Grisman Groove

    David has always been my favorite rhythm player... not just his masterful technique, but his uncanny ability to always be in the pocket no matter what setting he's playing in. Many is the time I've...
  2. Re: Coming back to Mandolin and have a few questions.

    as Rob Roy says... the Eastman and Kentucky lines are your best choices in that price range. the Kentucky KM1000 can be very impressive but the entry level Eastman F styles are good too. gotta find...
  3. Re: Coming back to Mandolin and have a few questions.

    if you're talking oval-hole mandolins as opposed to f-hole mandolins you can't do much better than the current Eastman 504 or 604 models. check out The Mandolin Store as they usually have them in...

    Kudos to Derek at Northfield Mandolins

    As an ex-business owner I sometimes miss the days of being able to truly serve my clients. I valued my relationships with these people even more than the money that they spent and because of this I...

    I just received my Miller pick today... what would be the equivalent to a BC TAD50.

    Firstly, Matt's service and communications were GREAT... that is a big plus in my book. I had never ordered...

    I'm with Drew here... if you don't listen to a broad variety of music you'll never really "get" the idea of musicality. For me listening to music critically and fully-immersed is everything...

    Sticky: Re: Loar Picture of the Day

    Fascinating... a July 9th Fern Loar! And no Virzi to boot! Now there's a Loar I haven't played that I would sure love to! And yes, some other pix would be much appreciated!

    Re: Kimble or Duff F5?

    I'd choose the Kimble... for me the Duff is a little too "woofy" whereas the Kimble has that nice balance between warm and clear without being too bright or too hollow sounding. As Lynn "The Dude"...

    Kimble and Duff greatly admire each other's work and are Mando Brothers from afar... and they do festival duties together quite a bit. I have played Duffs and Kimbles and they are all superb......

    Re: D'Addario picks?

    A pick to a mandolinist is what a bow is to a violinist. No more, no less. Blue Chip picks are at the top end of commercially made pick prices and they cost around $40.00 with shipping. The best of...

    The folks at Northfield are continually doing amazing things and have accomplished much in a relatively short period of time.

    They are to be applauded.

    Re: Are All Lloyd Loars Dropping In Price?

    Personally, I don't think the human race will be here even 100 years from now. So go ahead... buy or sell your signed Lloyd Loar F5 while there's still time!
