    Re: Weighty Question

    Could one of the moderators turn on Dr. Dave Cohenís Bat Signal, please?

    The placebo effect is extremely powerful, Sblock, youíre absolutely correct. Iíve never felt the need for a tone guard, but...

    Re: Why So Few Resonator Mandolins?

    I really love my RM-1. It’s the most dynamic mandolin I own. Goes from soft, sweet, and pretty, to parting your hair loud in a pick stroke. I also like the wide nut. That said, the others get played...

    Re: 2020 NAMM Show Report

    I couldn’t agree more. I bought one to take on a European trip a couple years ago...cheap, indestructible-ish, and if it were were lost or damaged, no big. It’s offered me some comfort in...

    Re: Northfield F5S Purchase from Avenue Guitars

    Congratulations! The one Northfield I played at TME back in August alongside 1 Pava and a couple Collings mandos was a very nice mandolin. There were some differences, some subtle, some pronounced,...

    Re: What if I bought the wrong instrument?

    Other than flat top guitars, the only 2 oval hole instruments I’ve owned are a Flatiron 1N and a Weber Hyalite OM. I loved the flatiron tone, but Dennis is correct, the F hole style really can play...
  9. Re: I registered for a group class and am getting nervous

    Go have fun! Just remember to LISTEN to the music and fit in where you can. Even if you hardly play at all you’ll come away with a new set of tunes to learn, and you’ll eventually be able to...
  10. Re: Here's why you are an amazing mandolin picker but still dumb

    I know a 98 year old lady who used to play bass and maybe keys with Arthur Smith in her 20s and maybe early 30s. She eventually got tired of the road grind along with working full time and raising...

    I used to like the Sam Bush’s, except for the lighter A strings. Have Martin monels on my dreadnaught presently and really like them. They’re plenty loud, but darker sounding than PB. I think I’m...

    Re: Wide neck Mandolins ?

    National RM-1s have a 1.25 inch nut width. My others are 1 1/8 and 1 3/16 (which essentially feel the same). I can tell a difference between the RM-1s and the others, for sure, but it only takes a...

    Re: Need advice on selling Flatiron mandolin

    I’m assuming this is a 1N pancake style, as I had no luck googling 1 DC. If so, they’re selling for 500-700, depending on condition and where in the country you are (ie, you’ll typically pay more in...
